U2's AMA and Justin Timberlake

Got this from U2NYC. At least we got the boys the Internet Artist of the Year which is really a total fan voted award as opposed to the weird way they award most of the American Music Awards.

*U2 earned one of two possible awards at the American Music Awards
Wednesday night (Jan. 9) when they were named "Internet Artist of the Year."
They were also nominated in the "Best Pop/Rock Group" but lost that to
N*Sync, prompting N*Sync's Justin Timberlake to tell the booing crowd "Oh,
quit booing - U2 are going to win some Grammies."

I didn't hear about that. When I got home last night my little sister (18) was watching the AMA's, and she said "Hey, my boys kicked your boys butt". That just made me sad that a)my sister likes nsync, and that b)other people do too.

Yes, I saw that, it was freakin hilarious!!

Justin is SUCH a loser!!! Bono could beat the crap out of him with both hands tied behind his back.

Bye Bye Bye!!!

I realy don't know why do you think that that guy from n'sync is a loser, and what would you expect him to do?
I think that he managed realy great and funy. I hate their music, but I have to respect his reaction in front of a big crowd. What in the hell did you expect him to do - to walk away saying: "You are right we suck and we deserve to be booed!!"
If bono did something like that you would all be saying "man, bono rocked out there, he doesen't care what they think, he is soooo cool...".
this guy at least has some selfrespect
get over yourselves, why do you care so much about what n'sync guys are doing. My god you even know their names by heart...

that is a good point marko and to some extent i agree with you. i actually thought it was kinda clever what timberlake said.
but if that is your belief why are you constantly worrying about U2's public image and reminding us how important it is whether the press sees bono's flag clutching as sincere or not?

Becouse I'm a U2 fan and I care (I know I shouldn't but I do) about the way they present themselves to public, AND I thought that the flag stunt was only that - a stunt.
On the other hand I'm not a n'sync fan so I don't care about the way they are seen by the public, I have no respect for their music, but why should I "hate" them as people? What this guy said was funy and clever - he managed to get out of difficult situation, and that I respect.

Hey I saw it too, and I think Justin is a cool guy for saying that. I'm sure he really respects U2, btw. At least he knows U2 is better but too bad N Sync as a whole don't know just How Much their music sucks.

I think Justin repsects U2 too. I don't know which other groups were up for the award, but if any other band had won, I doubt that they would have acknowledged that maybe U2 should have won the award. And remember at the MTV awards when NSync won an award over U2 for video of the year?? Justin said "U2 was robbed." I think that kid has mad respect for U2.

I have to agree with you! I didn't see it, but from what I hear I think it was classy of him.

I have yet to find a post by Marko that is not negative.

I think he acted like a sucker. A bitter, poor spoiled sport. Why did he have to mention U2 anyway??? What made him think the crowd was booing because of that? Although I know they were.

Whatever!!!

If you know, than I think thatit's posible that he knew it too...
My posts here are not negative, they are positive - I said only positive things about what n'sync guy did...

Salome - I'm sory, i tried to make a joke, but I failed miserably... you know that I love your smiley and your cynic posts...

I don't think sicy was referring to what you said, but how you said it. Just an observation.

Look what you did, you little JERK!
