The big MTV night out

The night kicked off with the red carpet event (which was actually a pink carpet) at the Odyssey, The Red Hot Chilli Peppers at the Ulster Hall and Jason Derulo at the City Hall. Recording of the main show began at 8pm and it was broadcast around the world from 9pm. Our wee Odyssey Arena looked amazing, but then the City and Ulster Halls looked amazing as well.
Some of our colleagues were at the Ulster Hall and were blown away by the intimate gig, but over at the City Hall the 15000 strong crowd just partied and had a great time getting airlocked (drunk) while Gary Lightbody and the Snow Patrol guys gave a special performance on what was a special night. As you can see in the photo below the crowd were having a ball!
Meanwhile over in the Odyssey, Lady Gaga wowed with a typically off the wall costume and performance, Queen and Adam Lambert were parful (city speak!) and Jessie J just had fun and gave 2 amazing performances.
When Snow Patrol left the City hall and Queen wrapped up in the Odyssey, the big names headed to the Europa Hotel, and we headed over to the Merchant Hotel for the industry after show party with a special performance by Wretch 32. The free bar was a nice touch, but it’s really taken me until this morning (tuesday!) to feel any kind of normality.
What a great weekend and what a great scoop for our wee city, didn’t it just look so good.
Thanks to Belfast City Council, MTV and everyone else involved in bringing it to Belfast. And we’ll see and do it all over again with MTV next year when they come over to celebrate the opening of Titanic Belfast.
