Best: Musical performances
One of the best parts of this year's show were the musical acts who brought their A-game (something that hasn't always occurred in. The show kicked off with an appropriately upbeat "We Are Young" by .Fun and Janelle Monae. It later segued to Johnny Depp joining The Black Keys for a rousing "Gold On The Ceiling" and then heading out to commercial on "Lonely Boy." Wiz Khalifa also brought some much needed energy to the proceedings with "Work Hard, Play Hard." To be honest, and if there had been time, the show could have benefited from a closing act.
