Kanye apologizes on the Jay Leno Show the day after the VMAs (9-14-09)
There was some music last night as well. Below is the Michael Jackson open, the Taylor Swift performance about 5 minutes after the Kanye bumrush, the Jay-Z finale and the trailer for the Michael Jackson film.
Not really a fan of Taylor Swift, but I REALLY enjoyed her performance.
