Best and Worst: Alicia Keys, Nicki Minaj and Gabby Douglas
Team USA women's gymnastics team star Gabby Douglas could do a floor routine to Slayer and we'd still be on our feet. Keys may find more traction with "Girl on Fire" than she did with "New Day," and this Nicki Minaj guest spot -- toothless as it was -- may help. In a show with zero subtlety, this was an easy, stagey, imperfect performance to watch.
