    Wasn't really impressed with the performance, but then again it was their first time performing the song.

    It lacked the punch of the original and I think the cutting down of the song had a lot to do with it. It really fucked up the pacing. Chester sounded too whiny on the chorus but Mike and the rest did okay on the verses/gang vocals.

    I really enjoyed the The Catalyst live, especially when almost all of Linkin Park were singing the song together, I don't know if this is the first time where all the band members sang a song together live (correct me if I'm wrong though) but if it was I think it was pretty awesome

    I actually think Chester sounded better with his raspy voice. I thought it made the song more intense or aggressive; whatever you want to call it, i don't know the word for it lol.
    But i do give it that it was not that great because they couldn't play the actual whole entire song, which was a big bummer. Overall it was an amazing performance, best at the Vma's.

    For once? I don't think he sounds whiny 90% of the time. Here however, he went really nasal on the chorus and if I'm not mistaken he missed a note as well. But I'll give it a pass since it was the first ever live performance of the song. He'll def get better with more practice.

    I agree. Not really raspy though but more raw.

    The instrumental breakdown in the middle always gives the song that punch. Damn you VMAs. They let frickin' Justin Bieber have a drum solo at the end of his performance. Seriously WTF.

    That's because Justin Bieber rakes in more viewers than Linkin Park.

    Sad but true story. You appeal to the audience.
