The American Music Awards always promises to be the most mundane of the music awards shows, and it delivered! Although I do appreciate that there were more performances than actual awards given out. The show opened with David Guetta and Nicki Minaj, who won two awards.
Katy Perry received a special achievement award, which I wasn’t aware existed before last night and seems to be the adult version of giving someone a gold star for having the best macaroni and glue sculpture in 2nd grade.
The entire show seemed to be sponsored by Fiat featuring Jennifer Lopez, she appeared on stage at least four times. Say what you will about JLo, and you will, but over 40 with two kids and still able to move like that in a flesh colored catsuit–get it girl!
(I’d like to think she was showing her ex-husband Marc Anthony, who also performed with Pitbull, what he was missing. )
Speaking of moving, Maroon 5 performed their hit “Moves Like Jagger” with Christina Aguilera this time.
[Editor’s Note: Who else noticed the complete lack of chemistry between those two? I didn’t see one bit of eye contact, so I believe the rumors to be true that Adam and Xtina loathe each other. Oh, and why did Adam wear a shirt?
Oh, and why did Christina wear that steel-enforced bandage dress? Girlfriend needs to put down the bottle of booze. Seriously. ~ DivaJulia]
Later, Mick Jagger appeared in a video during Will.i.am‘s performance which was like every Black Eyed Peas performance ever. (Read: “TRON.”)
LMFAO closed out the show with their songs “Party Rock Anthem” and “Sexy And I Know It,” the first of which they were joined by Justin Bieber who stomped around on stage. I hate to say that I enjoyed this, because I did.
Feel free to judge, here is a list of all the winners!
Jennifer Lopez, The Wedding Singer? Can’t say that I blame JLo for leaving the U.S. just days after the public announcement of her split with that controlling, tiny Napoleonistic a-holeMarc Anthony.
After all, he ran off to Colombia and said this crap:
“They’re saying I’m single,” he told the audience to cheers at Símon Bolívar Metropolitan Park in Bogotá, according to People.com.
Anthony made no specific mention of Lopez, but he blew several kisses at the crowd, and called one female fan “Mamacita,” which translated to “Hot Moma.” He later told her, “You’re so beautiful.”
I know. That photo up there doesn’t have anything to do with this post, but I think it’s funny. If you’ll recall, Skeletor and JLo performed together during the finale of American Idol, (read: Skeletor sang angrily and JLo shook her booty and glared).
