For those of you who saw the Emmy Awards, it was just another awards show. I do have to admit the thousand awards that were given out tonight balance out the 6 awards given at the MTV VMAs. If the two award shows would have combined, we would have had a happy medium. Nonetheless.
So, for those of you who did see the show, you would have seen the hilarious Rainn Wilson vs. Kanye West rap competition. Wayne Brady had the two of them come up on stage and have a “rap-off” to Kanye’s “Stronger” a la Don’t Forget The Lyrics style. Of course Rainn Wilson won because Kanye was playing up his obnoxious, “I never win” sham. To be honest with you, it was pretty funny.
Anyway, my friend that was at the Justin Timberlake concert texted me that Kanye had just shown up to sing “Stronger” with Justin. Must have been a busy night for Kanye and his giant head. First, the Emmy Awards, then the Justin Timberlake concert, and onward to after parties. He should celebrate his success because his album “Graduation” just came in at #1 in the U.K. Too bad he never wins awards.
For those of you who want to see the hilarious “rap-off” check it out below:

Although comedy is her profession, Nadine has accomplished a lot in her young age. She is a national champion black belt, a world-class soccer player, and an avid snowboarder. She started playing soccer at the age of 4, and continued playing through college where she majored in Biology, but quickly realized her destiny was to tell jokes, not to wear a lab coat. So she decided to be funny while finishing her Bachelors Degree in biology and continued on to get her M.B.A. Nadine’s comedy style is much like her athleticism, fearless. She’s made her way up the comedy ladder very quickly, and has become a club favorite at many of the country’s top comedy clubs, including the Improv chain. Performing in the Boston Comedy Festival and being noted as the “one of the youngest and brightest up and comers” and traveling to the Middle East to entertain the troops are just a few of her notable accomplishments. These days Nadine splits time between the stage, a radio studio, her computer blogging, and a television studio. Nadine’s TV, Radio, Writing credits include: national commercials, talking head roles on E! Entertainment, Showtime’s Hot Tamales Live, The Skinny: Fat Free News, The Sunny Side of The Truth: Real World Hollywood, TVgasm, Zazreport, Daddy’s Girls, Jerseylicious, celebrity interviews on Mania TV, a weekly half-hour television show that syndicates to colleges across the country for National Lampoon and a nightly radio show on XM Satellite Radio.
