Billboard Music Awards are pretty lame for what they honor

It celebrates the musicians who have really helped boost the music business but the Billboard Music Awards is a bad show. Granted, when covering these shows all year long, it is this one when the winners are pretty much a given. Follow the sales and the charts throughout the year, and there you have it. However, instead of handing out the awards and getting off the stage, they overproduce and overpraise everyone who has ever picked up a guitar, or a microphone.
As for the tribute to Whitney Houston, it was fine but out of place, as was the one for Beastie Boys' Adam Yauch. The night seemed forced and pretentious.
And the TV audience for a May Sweeps was not that good, despite the spin from ABC. The most-watched show last night was Tom Selleck's "Jesse Stone" on CBS.
