The AMA’s: See the Best Moments

Written by , Posted in General

Meghan Trainor and Charlie Puth sent tongues wagging with their lip lock toward the end of their AMA performance, but the spicy twosome insist it was all simply for show, and they are just friends. You know what they say . . .true love begins with an ass grab.

Dressed in all black and rocking red lipstick, Gwen Stefani belted out “Used to Love You,” an emotional ballad off her new solo record, which is presumably about Gavin Rossdale’s alleged affair with their nanny. Blake Shelton tweeted support for his new girlfriend, despite not attending the event.

Apparently Selena Gomez isn’t so sick of that “Same Old Love,” because she recently reunited with Justin Bieber, for the 105th time. And while her performance and choregraphy was shockingly good, I can’t help but feel disturbed by what appears to be a pre-pubescent looking girl dancing around the stage in booty shorts.

Proving that they’re being handed some of the best songs in the business, One Direction harmonized their way through “Perfect,” sans Zayn Malik, who tweeted a curious message about their win.

Just about everyone has attempted to emulate Alanis Morissette’s bad-ass breakup anthem, “You Oughta Know,” so it’s only fitting that Demi Lovato would illustrate its impact with an all-black getup and some very dramatic facial expressions while joining her on stage. The beauty of Alanis is her pulled-back pesonality coupled with her cutting lyrics, so Demi’s performance was a little too obvious for my taste. That being said, it’s worth the watch.

Christina Aguilera’s Wardrobe Flop — Sings With Maroon 5

Written by , Posted in General

I have absolutely no idea what Christina Aguilera was thinking when she wore that Herve Leger dress while performing with Maroon 5 at the American Music Awards. To put it plainly, it just wasn’t flattering, and something tells me that Aguilera either shot-down her stylist or doesn’t have one. I’m comfortable pointing this out, not only because it was a completely inappropriate style flop, but also because I’ve heard from about 500 people in the industry that Christina Aguilera is not a nice person, which serves to assuage my Jewish guilt. Watch the performance below. She enters the stage around minute two.

Nicki Minaj & David Guetta Open the AMA’s — Ridiculous Performanc​e

Written by , Posted in General

Remember in college when your friends went to that very loud club with the terrible music, got super-wasted, and insisted that they were having the time of their life? Let’s just say that Nicki Minaj’s performance at the American Music Awards brought back some of those painful memories. Does anyone just sing anymore? Is Lady Gaga responsible for these costume monstrosities? For goodness sakes, what was on Nicki Minaj’s ass during the opening of that song? If the show is called the ‘American Music Awards,’ then where is the real music? Watch below.

Fox Created the American Country Awards? Country Music Overload?

Written by , Posted in General

Thanks to Fox, there are now four awards shows dedicated exclusively to country music: The CMA Awards, the ACM awards, the CMT awards, and now the American Country Awards (soon to be called the ACA awards, I imagine).  So why the country music overload, and should Carrie Underwood even be flattered that she won Artist of the Year at this newly created event?  Well, awards shows generate a lot of money, so Fox started to see dollar signs and created an excuse to get a bunch of celebrities in a room together.  After all, isn’t that why Dick Clark created the American Music Awards?  If they wanted a celebrity gathering to draw ratings, I assume they could have also brought cameras into a Los Angeles plastic surgeon’s office, but then the famous people wouldn’t be wearing pretty ball-gowns, and where’s the fun in that?

Kid Rock — My Favorite Performance at the AMAs

Written by , Posted in Uncategorized

There were a lot of fantastic performances at the American Music Awards, but I surprisingly liked Kid Rock’s the best.  It was simple, and it proved that you don’t need a million people running around the stage in unitards to impress an audience.  Watch below.
