  2. MARIAH CAREY CLOSES THE MTV VIDEO MUSIC AWARDS WITH A STUNNING ARCANE MEDLEY The performance begins with Mariah standing at the bottom of what seems to be a mountain. We can see Maxence performing with her as they both slowly walk to the edge of the mountain. Both their performance were strong and they managed to compliment each other's voice well. However, during the outro of the performance, we could see Mariah falling down at the edge of the mountain. As soon as Mariah falls down from the edge of the mountain (that has cascades) on stage, the screen at both sides of the stage shows a footage of Mariah plunging into water while all the stage lights cut to black, making the entire stage dark. Over here, we could see Mariah swimming on the screen, as if she was desperate to find something that she's lost. However, she still managed to swim gracefully within the waters. Soon after, a loud drum bass-like instrumental could be heard clearly in the background as a monologue that was spoken by Mariah was heard. "What is the use of being adventurous? When there's nothing good for me to gain? What is the use of it all... when I can feel a part of me, drifting away?" After that, the intro to Drifting Away could be heard playing within the background. Within the extremely deep river that was constructed by Mariah's team and VMAs, the water brightens up as Mariah gracefully comes out of the water for air. Half of her body remains in the water as she starting cooing a haunting voice, giving support to the static EDM beat that echoed throughout the entire venue. We could clearly see the dancers moving around as Mariah slowly comes out on the more drier side of the stage as she performs the song. Mariah walks around the edge of the water while being totally wet. "Roaring Cascades / They're flowing through me / Its current is slowly beginning to make me fade," Mariah sings as she goes back into the water. Soon after, we can see a rope coming down from the top as she ties herself onto the safety rope. During the climax of the performance, which is the instrumental leading up until the chorus and also the chorus itself, Mariah was lifted into mid air with a rope in the middle of the stage as she spins around. She spins around gracefully as she sang the chorus of the song. "Why am I afraid? / Of the unknown that lies ahead?", Mariah sings as the breakdown begins to play. Within the background, we could see fog begin to cover up the stage as something strange occur. Some VHS vintage effect occur as Mariah slowly disintegrates on stage while the instrumental of Drifting Away prominently plays within the background. The effect was created with optical illusions as well as the help of technology as well as the fog. The crowd was clearly left shaken by the view of the VHS effect that occurred on Mariah herself. We could hear a light glass breaking sound as the lights go to black. After a few seconds, we can hear the sound of a piano playing slowly within the background. The piano fades within the background as the lights brightens up, to reveal a choir in white within the background. The intro to 'White Doves' begins to play as Mariah stood at the side of the now slightly empty stage with a pair of wings on her back. The choir backed her up throughout the entire performance of the section of White Doves. During the final chorus of White Doves, which serves as the climax of the song, Mariah walks to the middle of the stage as bright light shines behind Mariah. Slowly but surely, the wings behind Mariah begin to flap and move as Mariah floats up. It's as if the pair of wings is making her fly and she's liberated from whatever that's holding her down. Mariah flew across the venue before slowly descending in the midst of a platform that was erected among the audiences, who were surprised to see Mariah in all her glory. The instrumental plays and the choir backs Mariah up as she reaches the ground.

  8. SURPRISE COMMERCIAL SPOT The commercial begins with a black screen. Slowly a dark electro R&B instrumental fades in, and visuals of a desert appear on the screen. As the music plays, the camera moves along the desert and we see that various items are strewn along the sand. We can see picture frames, and golden arrows, silver handcuffs and empty boxes of chocolate. The camera continues to move for about fifteen seconds showing the various objects, until finally it reveals a man lying in the sand. He's sprawled on the ground and is unmoving, but he has various scars all bleeding different colors all over his body. The camera halts when his face fills the frame. The screen then cuts to a gray screen, and the single cover for 'True Colors' appears. Then these words are spoken by an announcer, "True Colors, the brand new single from the Fifty Shades Darker soundtrack...by Rihanna. Available now!" @Alesus ---
