If only his whore of a mother had chosen an abortion, poor Joan Cusak would be spared the insulting comparison!

HE SUCKED. I truly thought the whole thing sucked except alot of the singing/dancing. Everyone was so out of sink. Every presenter was looking around getting cut off. Very, very bad production and please don't bring him back. Let him stay over the pond and be funny. We have THE BEST commedians here in the US. Why didn't we use one of them? Very very poor executive decisions. Even my fav... Zac Efron looked out of place.

No, please don't send him back to his own country. I watch the British channels & I'm REALLY enjoying not having to tolerate him. Your country is bigger, he can get lost quicker. Please take pity on Ireland & don't inflict him on us again, I implore. :D

He's a comedian and they poke fun at whatever is out there. Not everyone likes every joke they hear. As far as Brand poking fun at the Jonas Bros. they shouldn't have made such a big deal out of the rings. They opened themselves up for that one and Brand won't be the only comedian that pokes fun at them. The Jonas Bros. are in the public light and they should grow thicker skin and let it roll off their backs. Too many stars have bragged about their so called virtues only later in life someone spills the beans and everyone finds out they weren't as honest as they claimed to be. Its a double edged sword that bites them either way. Besides its my job as a parent to teach my children about values and virtues not the Jonas Bros.

Here's a little about Russell that I found on the internet...

"He is a former heroin addict, sex addict, alcoholic and has had numerous run-ins with the police, having been arrested 11 times for public indecency. During the time of his addiction, he was known for his debauchery, a notable example being his ejection from The Gilded Balloon, in Edinburgh."

So, my question is - who the hell is he to be criticizing and demeaning anyone!

I turned off the show after few minutes of his BS. He was horrible! I ran into the computer room to post a comment about this idiot on TMZ but didn't knwo where to do it. I was so happy when I saw this today and how everyone agreed with me.
This is a MUSIC SHOW! Why mix it with politics. Did the OBAMA CAMP PAY HIM TO DO THIS TO GET MORE VOTES? Big mistake associating yourself with that LOSER!!! Why they pick an "UNKNOW IDIOT" TO BE THE HOST? Also, it was totally rediculous to let a foreigner talk about our current president! That host made me sick!!!!
Thanks for letting us know that a sex and drug addict was the host. Pathetic!!!!
