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.

What was YOUR favorite performance of the night?

Full List Of VMA 2012 Winners and Red Carpet

Huh? Illuminati?

The 2012 MTV Video Music Awards came and went faster than one of Tom Cruise‘s reject girlfriends. It was bumped up an hour so it wouldn’t coincide with President Obama‘s speech at the DNC, but whether it was only two hours long or four, it still sucked. This was probably the most tame red carpet, but everyone mostly looked goodMostly.

Taylor Swift showed up Kennedy-less, but looking like a 37-year old divorcee in this white pantsuit

Amber Rose confirmed her pregnancy a` la Beyonce in this lacy dress. Fiance Wiz Khalifa looks so proud. Congrats guys!

Team USA’s “Fierce Five” made their VMA red carpet debut. They all looked pretty fierce, don’t you agree?

Rita Ora wore this sparkly jumpsuit

Not to be outdone, Nicki Minaj wore this Tron-esque catsuit. She also sported a MTN DEW colored wig.

One of the few performers of the night, Pink worked a high slit.

Alicia Keys went for gold with this grecian gown.

I really liked Kat Graham‘s wine colored suit and the matching lip color.

Ke$ha cleaned up, but still somehow looked like she just rolled out of bed.

Rihanna has rocked many hairstyles over the past year but I think this is her best. Very Halle Berry.

Her friend Katy Perry went a bit more natural with her look, foregoing the colorful wigs and dye. Her dress was pretty nice too.

RuPaul, being his fabulous self.

Tyga showed up looking like a skinny Kool-Aid Man

I’m still not sold on Miley Cyrus‘s new hair, but this dress looks gorgeous on her, right?

Ke$ha is an auto-tuned horseface.

If you smile, you might get a carrot. To EAT, dirty girl. Gyaaah.

I know.  I can’t believe I’m writing about this chick, either.  However, after seeing her lame ass on American Idol the other night I must say, she was bloody awful.  (Say that like Simon would.)

This thing called Ke$ha had the nerve to say THIS about Miss Britney Jean Spears:

“I don’t think that’s fair at all for people who are going to see the show. I think if you are going to be a singer, you should sing. If you are going to be a dancer, you should dance. If you are going to do a combination of the two, you should make it very clear when you are singing and very clear when you are dancing. I would never do that to my fans. No offense to her specifically but people have asked me before to mime. I have been up at three in the morning for a television show with jet lag but I refuse to mime. It’s treating people as if they are too stupid to realize you are not actually singing. Sometimes it is hard to sing and dance at the same time but I would rather be off and be real and genuine about it to my fans. I don’t want to treat my fans like they are stupid.”

Hey Ke$ha?  Read THIS.

autotune 4826 up, 842 down love it hate it
April 29, 2009 Urban Word of the Day
Pitch correction software specifically for vocals that makes up for a lack of natural singing talent. 90% or more of all “professional” recordings use this software.
An extreme example is that horrific Cher song from a few years back, and the Kid Rock song where is voice is all fucked up. Used in moderation it can hardly be heard except by a trained ear.
Remember before autotune, when singers could actually sing?

or

Man, that chick sings so bad not even autotune can fix it.

God, she’s stupid. Here’s a little “Tik Tok” parody that made me smile.
