Eminem The Real Slim Shady & The Way I Am
Known for his unhinged and no-holds-barred music videos, for his first VMA’s performance of the new millennium Eminem had a high standard to meet at the award ceremony that celebrated the recorded meaning. To match the anything goes aesthetic of his videos, Em was accompanied by 100 Slim Shady lookalikes from the streets of New York City and into Radio City Music Hall while performing the appropriate “Real Slim Shady.” Round that off with a triumphant traditional performance of “The Way I Am” and you have yourself a memorable set.
Oh, and he was introduced by Jim Carrey. Not bad.
