Critical reception and controversy

Overall, critics praised the performances in whole. Critics, however, noted Beyoncé as the standout performer of the night.[2] However, some controversy was generated from the show. The Parents Television Council criticized Rihanna and Britney Spears's Performance of S&M (Remix), calling it "explicit", with PTC president saying "I cannot imagine what would possibly lead the ABC television network to air a profanity-laced, S&M sex show on primetime broadcast television", while criticizing the choice to air the performance first, on what they claim is a normally family targeted time slot (the show aired at 8:00 p.m.).[3]
