Sunday night, the American Music Awards aired on national television.
Ranking up five awards such as: Artist of the Year, Favorite Female Country Artist, and Favorite Artist under Adult Contemporary, a surprised and ecstatic Taylor Swift accepted the awards via webcam.
Michael Jackson received four awards; Favorite Male Artist under Pop/Rock, Favorite Album for Number Ones, Favorite Male Artist under Soul/Rhythm and Blues, and Favorite Album under the same category.
Some craziness entered the show also. With performances by Alicia Keys, Lady Gaga, Rihanna, Green Day, and more, Adam Lambert's performance probably wow'ed the audience more than the others. Maybe not necessarily in a good way. His pre-announced "sexy" performance received mixed feelings to the crowd. Instead of sexy, it ended up being...surprising, you could say. Watch it here.
Another crazy was Rihanna's outfit during her performance at the AMA's. Don't get me wrong, I loved the performance and the song she chose. But her outfit? I'm not sure. She's known for taking huge fashion risks, which I admire, but with this one? Kind of looked like duct tape all around her body. See for yourself.
Actually, I take that back. It's not duct tape at all, but actually fabric. Hmm, well Rihanna knows how to take risks, and her choice of clothing is unique. Check out her performance here.
And then, we have Lady Gaga's...exquisite performance, combining two of her songs, Bad Romance and Speechless. She brought some crazy, breaking glass, setting the piano on fire... need I go on?Check it out.
One amazing performance, in my opinion anyways, was Timbaland's with Nelly Furtado and Soshy performing Morning After Dark.
And of course, Alicia Keys and Jay-Z woke up L.A. with Empire State of Mind (one of my favorite songs). Needless to say, I loved it. That's all.
Carrie Underwood had a full on hot performance. Her outfit, her beauty, the song she chose. Everything just collided together into wonder. See it for yourself. Paula Abdul proudly watched the former American Idol winner performing.
Among the people atteding were Selena Gomez, Leona Lewis, Drake, Jeremih, The Black Eyed Peas, and many, many more.
I must also add that Shakira looked stunning at the AMA's.
