Well, if you can believe it, it’s now been a year since Arcade Firegate, when Kathie Lee and Hoda stoked the fire of YouTube haters, feeding their insatiable hunger for spewing forth bile and hate. And this year it seemed like a repeat a was inevitable, given the Best New Artist win for (not new artist) Bon Iver. We’re not even sure how to pronounce their name, so it was a forgone conclusion that KLG and the Kotb would stumble over themselves, coming up with at least three or four bastardizations of Justin Vernon’s nom de flume. BUT, as she has all week, Whitney Houston’s passing overshadowed the proceedings, obscuring any confusion the hosts of the 4th hour may have over a band we must assume they think is a weird French singer. Instead, Kathie Lee raises the important questions and makes the significant points, while Hoda simply states the obvious.
We wonder if by “the Bahamas” Hoda meant this.
