Madonna’s tribute to Aretha Franklin, who had passed away four days prior to the award show, received criticism from media outlets. Many viewers had claimed the pop singer’s speech was poorly conceived and more focused on herself instead of Franklin’s legacy. The show had seen yet another severe drop in the ratings only achieving a mere 2.2 million viewers on MTV, and only seeing 4.86 million viewers on all of its sister networks. Although this rate is poor, the accumulate viewers are just a little lower than some editions of the nineties.
