UPDATING LIVE Venus and Serena are showing off their chests. Beyonce is performing from tennis courts in Compton. Her song is terrible, and lifts its first lines from “We Are Family.” Her segment was taped. It’s not even LIVE. And so we begin…
Good stuff from the trio of hosts Wanda Sykes, Regina Hall and Amy Schumer...Amy gets her own monologue and it’s very good.
