It was funny that they shown flashbacks to Tina Turner, Janet, Mariah, Whitney, and Celine during the telecast. Guess, to show what real talent was in the last 30 years.
THIS. Oh how I miss the days when Janet would tear up that AMA stage. These new girls could only wish.
LMFAO are lucky they are Berry Gordy's son and grandson. That is all.
J-Lo did her usual schtick. She was okay. I loved her acceptance speech. It's always fun to see Pitbull onstage in the supertight suit pants. Why he must be on everyone's song, though, is an annoying anomaly (particularly when he never adds anything special to the song).
Add me to the "Oh please, Taylor Swift, just cut the feigning surpise theatrics when you win" club. It is sooo annoying, and transparent.
Beiber--another anomaly. What on earth does this kid do to warrant the craze that surrounds him? I just don't get it.
Love Kelly Clarkson's new song, but why she CMA'd it up for the AMAs is beyond me. It's good to do something different, but...
If I never hear "Moves Like Jagger" again, it'll be too soon. I'm always up for seeing sexy Adam Levine prance and dance across a stage (let's face it, Maroon 5 is acutally Adam Levine plus four other guys), but that song is just...overplayed. And Christina really does need to check a mirror before she leaves the house these days. Her stylist needs to be fired, ASAP.
ROBIN THICKE! Talk about sexy! I wish he'd have performed his new song. It was good seeing him.
How cute, Matthew and Jennifer Morrison presented together, but they're not related nor are they married. I always think it's cool and dorky at the same time whenever actors present on a music awards show.
Will.I.Am. The space-age/blacklight schtick is over and done, son. Let's change it up a bit.
I called it with Chris Brown. I knew he couldn't just come out and sing (live) a ballad and let it be. He had
to break out the choreography/special effects-laden performance for the second half. The first half was good enough on it's own, and would have shown him to be versatile. Oh, well.
Between Katy Perry and Nicki Minaj, I don't know who wants to out-Gaga Lady Gaga more. Color me shocked that Lady G. won nothing last night.
I like Drake, but I, too, can't not
see Jimmy from Degrassi when I watch him perform.
Bruno Mars has some appeal, I guess, but I just hope he's left the coke (sniff-sniff) alone.
Overall, music is sadly in the dulldrums, and this show just further proved it.
