While I fight with my urges to change the channel, Simple Plan perform “Your Love Is A Lie”, which is actually what I might call the dullest performance of the night. That kind of shocks me a little, considering these guys are pretty cool, and they usually rile up the crowds. Not so much tonight, but then again, they were kind of shoe-horned into this non-moment in the show.
