TVR Awards -- The 10 Most Viewed Videos of the Year

by Donald Deane, posted Dec 27th 2010 11:30AM

Take a tour through the past year of TV and relive some of the best moments the medium had to offer in our 10 Most Viewed Videos of the Year. We'd all do well to study these fan favorites and commit them to long-term memory. After all, someday our grandchildren might ask where we were when Terry Bradshaw sprang from a cake, when Helen Mirren showed up in a red bikini or when Joy Behar and Whoopi Goldberg walked off their own set. Okay, maybe not. But it's nice to dream.

The Nominees:

Jackie Evancho Wows the Judges: Ten-year-old singing sensation Jackie Evancho earned universal praise on 'America's Got Talent' for a stunning opera performance. "That is one of the most extraordinary performances I've ever seen on 'America's Got Talent,' raved Piers Morgan. "We're going to wake up tomorrow and America is going to be going crazy for a little girl who just sang like an angel."

Terry Bradshaw Pops Out of a Cake: Chelsea Handler presented Jay Leno with an enormous cake in honor of his 60th birthday on 'The Tonight Show.' Leno wondered if there was some "super attractive girl" hiding inside. But, alas, a shirtless Bradshaw emerged instead, complete with wings and a harp.


Contestant Insults Meredith Vieira: A contestant on 'Who Wants to Be a Millionaire' was in the midst of explaining how he got the nickname "Big Sexy" from an "older" woman. When Meredith Vieira, who is 56, asked what he meant by this, Big Sexy said, "early 50s," causing the host to react indignantly.


Joy Behar and Whoopi Goldberg Walk Off in a Huff: While discussing the proposed World Trade Center mosque on 'The View,' Bill O'Reilly stated that "Muslims killed us on 9/11." Behar and Goldberg, who perceived this as a slight against all Muslims, then walked off the set of 'The View' in protest. "I don't want to sit here right now," Behar said. "I'm outraged by that statement."

Michael Douglas Talks Cancer Diagnosis: Despite having recently undergone his first round of chemotherapy for throat cancer, Michael Douglas appeared on 'The Late Show' and discussed his battle with the disease. "Did they find it early enough for their liking?" David Letterman asked. "I sure as s*** hope so," Douglas replied.


Helen Mirren Says Her Bikini Bod is Just "Luck": On 'The Ellen DeGeneres Show,' viewers were treated to tabloid bikini pictures of Mirren taken while she vacationed in Puglia on the Southern tip of Italy. Mirren looked fantastic in the pics despite her age, but the actress downplayed her appearance to Ellen. "It was pure luck, honestly. I swear to you, I do not look like that. I don't," she said.

Jennifer Grey Wins 'DWTS': After a season filled with shocking eliminations and controversy, Jennifer Grey was crowned winner of 'Dancing With the Stars.' "I didn't think I was going to compete tonight," said Grey, who was suffering from back problems. "I'm glad I did."


Octomom's Bizarre Appearance on 'The View': Nadya Suleman forgot questions, had trouble focusing and repeatedly broke out in a braying, donkey-ish laugh while being interviewed on 'The View.' Her odd behavior caused Behar to question if she's taking drugs. "Are you on something?" she asked.


A Super Bowl Surprise: Apparently, the Super Bowl makes for strange bedfellows. Letterman and Leno put aside their tension over NBC's late-night scheduling debacle and appeared in a Super Bowl ad along with Oprah Winfrey. "This is the worst Super Bowl party ever," declared Letterman. That may be true, but it made a great commercial.

No Marriage for Sarah Silverman: Sarah Silverman vowed not to get married until same-sex couples have the right on 'The View.' "If you're for equal rights, why would you get married right now? It's like joining a country club that doesn't allow blacks or Jews. There's no difference," she said. But Behar didn't seem to buy it. "That's a good excuse, too, for some people," she countered.

Could we try not to use content in our comments that contain cursing and sexual body parts. There may be children reading this post that don't need to be reading that kind of filth.

She does has a nice voice, but you never know if she's just syncing. I'm not saying she is, you never really know. And it's weird how people are treating her like she's the only person on Earth who can sing opera. Who knows? There could be a handful of 5 year old opera singers! (I am entitled to my opinon, thank you very much.) She does have a great voice, just saying, it's not like she's the most important person on Earth.

Jackie is very talented and a sweetheart, but I won't support her until she records and releases "Silent Night" in it's entirety, 3rd verse and all.

That little girls voice is lovely, why are there people on her commenting so negativly about a little girl. I didn't even watch America's Got Talent I happen to be watching on Christmas the Disney parade and she sang and my mouth hit the floor. I had to call everyone in to the sitting room to witness her, my daughter is 10 and was very wowed by her. She is amazing and more people should realize that instead of putting a child down. You nay sayers on here should be ashamed of yourself for insulting a little girl. God gave her that voice and she is a miricle. So try saying something nice!

Well, first it is because she is GOOD. She has sold hundreds of thousands of CD's. I don't even remember who won AGT, but I do remember Jackie.

Syco/Columbia signed her to a recording contract. Did the First Place Winner get a recording contract....No! She's making her second Great Performances...that's unheard of...singing movie theme songs. She has sung for over a hundred thousand in St.Petersburg, Russia...with two of the best opera singers in the world, both having serious praise for her talents. She's had four albums, two of which has gone platinum and the other gold. I like Mike Grimm, but friend he just doesn't earn her payday...maybe this time 2nd is the winner!

Evancho will bust her vocal chords by the time she's 18 and will have to resort to singing pop. You're REALLY not supposed to learn how to sing like this until your chords are fully developed.
