Anything Can't Happen

Pamie: Michelle from Destiny's Child kind of looks like The Cowardly Lion.
Stee: When Tony Hawk is bedridden with arthritis, will he still be on these award shows?
Djb: Yes.

Grandmaster Flash asks people to say Ho, or -- alternatively -- scream. Diddy asks people to give it up another time for Grandmaster Flash. Diddy has to re-issue the diamond watch to that one guy in the audience because a bouncer was unclear on the concept and took it back. Ha. "Anything Can Happen," bitches. Live with that. Diddy tries to introduce someone, but keeps getting interrupted by a bit. We hear a girl in the audience screaming that she loves Diddy. "Show us your moves!" she shouts, but the girl in the audience isn't synching so well with the audio, and the whole thing looks bizarre. Wow, Anything really Can Happen. Even horribly unfunny bits. This goes on for a little while, as Diddy says he can't dance right now. He could take those last two words off that sentence, and it'd be a bit more accurate. Grandmaster Flash tells Diddy that he might eat his words after he hears this next thing he's about to throw down. Music starts. Diddy asks to cut the music. Usher looks at the camera and laughs, because "The Music Made Me Dance (It's Not My Fault)" is the oldest make-me-dance in the book. Diddy can't help but move his feet clunkily to the beat, posturing and posing like the Scarecrow when he first falls down from his post. Possibly Omarion joins him as the music changes to Michael Jackson. Is it Omarion? Who knows, because they keep cutting to people in the audience, and it's hard to see who everybody is when they're dancing in the shadows and wearing sunglasses. Then a hoedown appears, obscuring the fact that Diddy still isn't actually dancing. The girls grind all over him as a man shouts into a microphone "Go Diddy!" over and over again. This is like Vegas, when they're trying to obscure the fact that they're replacing the girl in the box with a white tiger. And then it ends, unimpressively. Diddy asks us to give it up for the "King of Miami," Godfather Luke (should we know what that means?) and "My Man" Omarion. All the hos be like, "Uh, thanks, Diddy," as they trollop off. There is no explanation for what happens next. Apparently "Anything Can Happen" means, "We ran out of money, and this guy is really desperate, and Michael Jackson fell through and...uh...Here's MC Hammer." Why is there a microphone, when Hammer hasn't touched it yet, and we can hear him singing? Oh, Hammer just remembered lip-synching. In his defense, he hasn't done this in over fifteen years. Hammer's off before he was even on, and Diddy celebrates the motto "Anything Can Happen."
