Worst: Instagram hosts and those Vine cuts
Yes, all the kiddies these days are all over Instagram and Vine. We're well aware of the social media trend as is MTV's teenage audience. That being said, random cuts to Vines from the show itself made for awkward and bad television. Moreover, "social media correspondent" Becky G (and a local co-host we honestly cannot remember) were brought on to talk about Instagram posts. Seriously, to comment on them. That was the idea at least. Instead, there was so little to actually say they became de facto red carpet fashion commentators half way through the pre-show. Maybe you shouldn't try so hard next time MTV?
