The world was watching, well, at least America was watching, well, at least a handful of American teenage girls were watching VH1's live broadcast of the Pepsi Super Bowl Fan Jam last night. Live from a stage at 8th and Ocean, televised and untelevised performances and appearances by Rihanna, Timbaland, Kerri Hilson, Justin Bieber, and JoJo pleased crowds of screaming idiots.
Here are the videos to prove it. Justin Bieber having technical difficulties at the start of a song.
Timbaland programming a beat live on stage and saying Sak Pasé.
Rihanna medleying it up.
Timbaland goes in on the live auto-tune with JoJo.
Rihanna goes Hard gotdammit. Damn she's good.
