Adam Levine Trashes VMAs As 'Utterly Horrible'
MTV VMAs 2017 Red Carpet

Adam Levine was thoroughly disappointed by the MTV Video Music Awards Sunday night, and ripped the annual show apart in just two tweets.

"It's always exciting to see how utterly horrible the VMAs will be," the Maroon 5 singer tweeted during the show. "They really delivered so far this year. #HOLYF-CK."

As usual, the show focused more on the performers than the actual awards, but even some performers were slighted. Julia Michaels was one of them, and Levine was not happy.

"Julia Michaels gets cut off while she's singing and Lorde gets to NOT sing her whole song," he tweeted.

Lorde revealed on Twitter prior to her performance that she had the flu, but many people didn't see it until after she did a wacky interpretive dance instead of sing her song, "Homemade Dynamite."

"You can't tell in these pictures but i have the flu so bad i needed an IV," she tweeted. "#showgoeson #cutelilproppedupcorpse."

Michaels, who sang her electropop hit "Issues," was not the only performer who got the short end of the stick. MTV also cut to commercial in the middle of a video tribute to the late Linkin Park frontman Chester Bennington.
