The Very Meh American Music Awards Red Carpet

The ‘American Music Awards’ were Sunday night, and as expected the red carpet looks left much to be desired. The show wasn’t all that great either. Mostly everyone looked presentable, as if to say they would rather be home watching ‘The Walking Dead’ than waste a good outfit on this thing. So here are the good, bad and meh of the AMAs red carpet.

 

katy

Katy Perry in Oscar De La Renta

ariana grande

Ariana Grande and lots of added hair. This girl only seems to have one expression, and to add to the Mariah comparisons, apparently she only has one good side.

heidi

Heidi Klum in Marchesa, naturally.

one direction

The boys of One Direction. They look so happy to be there, don’t they?

nicole

Nicole Richie in white.

xtina

Christina Aguilera, also in a white Maria Lucia Hohan dress .

kesha

Ke$ha, looking pretty good actually.

zendaya

Zendaya Coleman, looking a bit 70s-ish

joan jett

Joan Jett being her usual bad ass self.

zoe saldana

Zoe Saldana in whatever this is.

imagine dragons

The guys in Imagine Dragons all have the same tailor.

jhud

Great colors on Jennifer Hudson, just wish the fit was better.

miley

Miley Cyrus not looking a hot mess.

ciara

Ciara, not looking pregnant like she reportedly is.

taylor

No long dress for Taylor Swift this time.

naya rivera

Naya Rivera, channeling Morticia Addams.

kendall and kylie

Kendall and Kylie Jenner, still without adult supervision.

Last but not least, Lady Gaga arrived on a horse made of people. Because why not?

2012 American Music Awards Red Carpet and Full List of Winners

 

Another American Music Awards came and went. The show opened with a slightly out of breath Usher doing a medley of his hits and possibly blinding millions in the process. The performances were heavy on blondes, with PinkChristina AguileraCarrie Underwood and Gwen Stefani and Co rocking the stage. Nicki Minaj took us through a Winter Wonderland nightmare, and Justin Bieber didn’t let his recent breakup keep him doing what he does…lots of crotch-grabbing.

Perhaps the most talked about moment will be PSY‘ “Gangnam Style with a cameo from MC Hammer. Yes, that MC Hammer! Look, I know people are already writing PSY off as a one hit wonder here in the States, but this guy is huge everywhere and he puts on one hell of a show. It was exciting, and fun and kind of reminded me of LMFAO‘s big show closing performance form last year’s show. Hopefully, he won’t be in the same position they are now when I’m writing a recap of of 2013’s show.

There were some “interesting” looks from the red carpet. It’s the AMAs, so I never expect much really. Nicki wore a bright Now n’ Later colored dress, while Xtina got rid of the My Little Pony hair for a bob. I miss the pink honestly. Taylor Swift wore, surprise, sparkles and dumb look on her face!

 

Carrie Underwood looked good in this dark purple gown.

 Bieber, who is well on his way to a CoverGirl contract.

Speaking of cover girls, Pink worked a grey-ish silver dress.

Will.i.am wore this. (Eyeroll)

While 50 Cent was one of the few guys to wear a suit.

No Doubt never age, and hair bleach might have something to do with it.

Kelly Rowland looked gorgeous and trendy in this short number.

Ke$ha is trying out a new, “cleaner” look, but it’s not quite working for her.

 The show was performance heavy, but a handful of awards were actually given out. Here are all the winners!

American Music Awards Nominees 2012

Xtina probably just stayed up all night, rather than get up early, right?

 

Christina Aguilera got up probably too early for anyone else to announce the nominees for the 2012 American Music Awards in Los Angeles on Tuesday. Aguilera is also the first performer announced for the show which will air live from the Nokia Theater on November 18th at 8 p.m. on ABC.

Boy Band One Direction and Justin Bieber lead the noms along with Rihanna and Nicki Minaj. The awards show has added a new category for “Favorite Electronic Dance Music Artist” which probably won’t be around next year.  At least I hope not.  Here are all the nominees!
