AMA Awards: Highlights

Nicki Minaj started off the show with an electrifying (literally) performance of her new song with an outfit that plugged into David Guetta’s equipment. I would say it wasn’t nearly as crazy as I expected it to be, though it did have speakers on her super bass.. pictures of that soon.


To say other performances went downhill after the opener would be an understatement. Justin Bieber’s act fell sort of flat and I can’t decide if it was more painful to watch Adam Levine or to listen to him. And why did The Band Perry chose to sing “If I Die Young?”

Props to Enrique and LMFAO for their upbeat sets though. And LMFAO really outdid themselves onstage with not only the Biebs making an appearance but the Hasselholf graced the stage as well.




Oh and I just want to say Christina looked great. I guarantee tomorrow there will be blogs everywhere saying she looked fat, but girls just rocking a fuller figure. There is nothing wrong with that. Sometimes I think image obsessed Hollywood forgets that Marilyn Monroe’s thighs touched.


On the awards side, overall, it was Swift and Adele who dominated the full winner list by pocketing three awards each. Their domination was followed by another female artist Nicki Minaj who scored a double victory at the event. She got Favorite Rap/Hip-Hop Artist and Favorite Rap/Hip-Hop Album.
