Worst: A$AP Rocky presenting Macklemore
MTV did something impressive by bringing Jason Collins, the first out NBA player still playing (assuming he gets picked up this year), to introduce Macklemore and Ryan Lewis' "Same Love" performance. They also perplexingly brought out Macklemore's "friend" A$AP Rocky alongside him.
First off, A$AP Rocky seemed incredibly uncomfortable standing as far away from Collins as he could and still remain on screen (pretty hard considering Collins is 7 feet tall). Then he touted someone else's album (shoutout!) and he made a rambling line about everyone's color or homosexuality. He was out of his depth, made the entire moment - which was supposed to be a special socially relevant portion of the show - embarrassing and awkward. Horrible decision by MTV to say the least.
