There are a variety of bands in here but I think what we all want to talk about is *NSYNC showing up — ALL OF THEM, including JT, who, as I said in the live chat yesterday, appeared to be there under duress.  In less gossipy but still notable news, this might be the first time Maneskin has shown up for a major American awards show and NOT worn Gucci. DRAMA!!! (Don’t worry, we’ll be discussing the rest of the telecast later this afternoon but I didn’t want to wait to get into Timberlake’s wide-legged trousers.)
