Most Embarrassing Performance Pharrell Williams may have been the most talented and accomplished artist on this year's Holy Ship!!! lineup, but he ended up being one of the least exciting to watch. Seriously, we are not complaining, because he can grab an iPod and just dance around to his hits any day, and we will gladly enjoy the show. But as far as actually entertaining the crowd, Mr. Williams might have been better off at least trying to sing live. Mostly, he just went "yeah" and "uh" over a backing track, and we will never understand why he didn't work through songs like "Rockstar" or "Lapdance" or "She Wants to Move." That said, we did love it when he played "Frontin'," "Happy," and "Get Lucky." So look, we're not saying this guy's not awesome, but we can understand why some angry commenters in the Holy Ship fan Facebook group felt ripped off.

Cutest Couple We hear you going, "Wait, Laidback Luke and Gina Turner already got a shout out." Yes, they did. But they weren't the cutest couple. The cutest couple was definitely Zedd and Tiësto. After Zedd introduced his big buddy in the Pantheon Theater, they bro-ed around for the rest of the cruise like a couple of lovers on a tropical vacation. It was freakin' adorable. And incidentally, Zedd was actually the entire reason that Tiësto made it onto the boat in the first place. It was at his insistence that Tiesto checked it out and booked the gig. So, everybody, let's all offer a collective awww and leave them alone to do whatever it is bromantics do in private.
