I spoke to Krysten and Mikey P from DaCav5 the day after the 2009 MTV VMAs about their own MTV VMA win as Best Breakout Philly Artist. While we were chatting away, I had to get their take on some of the highlights from the awards show.
DaCav5’s Krysten and Mikey P share their thoughts on 2009 MTV VMAs- Kanye/Taylor and fav performance
DaCav5 continue to do big things in the indie music scene. They recently competed against 153 total music acts in the Philly area for a jointly sponsored MTV-Comcast competition for MTV Best New Breakout Philly Artist and WON!!!…There were similar competitions held in Atlanta, Chicago, Boston, DC and LA, NYC, and the Bay Area
Who else like me bought the hype that MTV was going to really do it up with a tribute to Michael Jackson? I was expecting to see more than Madonna’s speech and a short performance featuring Janet Jackson, however wonderful they were. I thought MTV would perhaps come up with an award to present to the family, maybe do some video footage of MJ at the VMAs through the years, intertwine MJ info for the presenters to share, I don’t know…just something more than what they did
