There used to be a time when I was looking forward to Christina Aquilera. She has such a wonderful voice. Why is she hiding it behind her weird antics? The girl can really sing. Unfortunately she didn’t show that tonight. Her unflattering outfit and her weird dancing was the focus of my attention.. I just don’t understand. She doesn’t need to do that. Her voice could carry her. Oh well. She won’t read that and she wont listen to me.
The award for Country Band goes to Lady Antebellum. Yeah!!!!
Ushers dance moves weren’t’ unflattering but I always smile when he dances,because he wants to be the next Michael Jackson and he is fine just being Usher. I like him.I don’t want to see a copy of Michael Jackson. Multiple dancers in colorful outfits were accompanying him on stage with nice sparks on the end. It was an entertaining performance.
The AMA Award for the Alternative Rock Band goes to Muse. Never heard of them! Neither did my kids. So I am moving on.
Someone has to tell Pat Monahan from Train that those pants may look good on a teen but not so good on a guy his age. He is trying too hard to stay young. Age gracefully like Jon Bon Jovi! Anyway I like that train were carried last year by a new wave of success. And a band which supports American Idol winner Kris Allen is a band I like. Pat was a little over exited as you can see in his dance move. Smaller steps, Pat! Smaller steps!!!
Michael Buble won for the first time the AMA Awards for adult contemporary music and he is been around for a long time. It looks like the guy is pretty nice. I loved his sweet Thank you speech where he thanked “straight, gay, black, white, poor and rich fans, his beautiful record label and his beautiful wife”
I can’t connect with Ke$ha. I don’t know what it is. She is neither Madonna nor Lady Gaga but is trying to hard to be at least one of them. Even when I try to be objective I have to admit there was way to much stuff going on stage and the black/white effect made me feel dizzy. I don’t see the point of people undressing her and male singers in tights either. Oh well. I am so glad that it’s over now.
The highlight of the night was probably Santana with Gavin Rossdale. They performed:” Get it On” I couldn’t get my eyes of Santana. I am in awe watching him playing the guitar and the joy he has doing so. There are no other words to describe it then incredible.
Usher receives the award for best R&B male singer and thanks Trey Songz. Has anyone told Usher that he has such a nice smile?
Our guy Ryan Seacrest presents the award for favorite artist of the year to Justin Bieber.He is the youngest person who ever won the award. Bieber was very gracious for calling Usher (his mentor) on stage. He called him his best friend/ brother and mentor.
Two boy bands on one stage was the novelty act I didn’t want to miss. New Kids on the Block and The Backstreet Boys performed together only that they are twenty years older now. I was put iback to my teen years instantly daydreaming of meeting one or the other. The show ended on such a happy but also melancholic note.
I told my daughter in twenty years she will be humming Justin Bieber songs and her daughter will be asking her:” Who is the old guy”” She didn’t believe me. We shall see.
