J Lo, Selena and Taylor look great.

Cyrus and Kesha need makeup artists and stylists.

OMG-didn't notice Kesha's 'almost NOT there' lower part of her 'dress'--if you can call it that!! I thought she looked so cute and fresh with no makeup and her hair pulled back. Maybe a teeny bit of makeup would have brightened her up--but...

did her 'cheeks' end up peeking out during the night??? LOL

They all look ridiculous.  Swift has a harsh lip line and a crooked eye. Cyrus can't close her upper lip over her teeth (it's perpetually open), smeared eye shadow is considered 'sultry'.

 

Please God send Max Factor STAT!
