The AMA Music Award show started with an eight minute medley from Rihanna. I was surprised how much time they give to the artists. The extravagant background was pretty fascinating starting with the Metal tree, the metal grass, the bongo dancers and ending with a fire. I liked her with the blouse better but later she revealed a poke dot top. In any way it is refreshing that normal figured women are on stage instead of super skinny models.
Speaking of which Heidi Klum was next welcoming everyone to the awards show. Her high pitched “Hey Everybody” grained right away on my ear.
The Award for Favorite Song went to Usher for Raymond vs Raymond. This was his 5th AMA award and he was nominated for three more.
The award for favorite group went to the Black Eyed Peas. This was their eight win.
Growing up In Germany Julio Iglesias was the men for women.. Now I think Enrique Iglesias (his son) replaced him. Can the guy be any hotter? I loved his boots, jeans and outfit. He seemed to have troubles with his ear peace because he constantly was messing with it. He ended up pulling it out. I like the guy and it seems he got the audience going. Was that Jason Aldean in the audience with that surprised look on his face? What is not to like about Iglesias energy ? And yes I would have liked to see him water skiing in the nude after Spain won the world cup. Pitbull came on stage and accompanied him. The performance was just totally enjoyable!
The problems with the ear peace continued. Miley Cyrus had it hanging on her shoulder too. What happened to the positive girl anyway? All over sudden she turned all Gothic. The twilight fever must have gotten to her. I didn’t like the dress at all. The best of her performance was probably the illusion given that the candles were real. Or were they?
Diddy Dirty Money followed. He do had his ear peace hanging over his shoulder. Yikes. There must have been some troubles today. When he sang about his son a child with braces was nodding. I am assuming it was his son. That was very cute. I am not a big fan of this kind of music so I leave it like that.
The next award was given to Taylor Swift for best female country artist who straightened her hair for a change. They had the other day a video montage about Taylor Swift on AOL which showed that Taylor is acting surprised every single time and that it is unreal to do that. She must have seen the video as she didn’t act surprised at all today and approached the stage with confidence and grace. The silver dress underlined her slim body and she thanked her fans who “get her”.
Samuel Jackson introduced Kid Rock as the man of all genre. And I think this is interesting because we discussed him as such just recently in our family. How does he do that? He can sing any style. You can think what you will about him but he always comes across as sincere and honest while singing. I don’t think I ever disliked a performance of his. The flags in the background and the soccer field make the song so like able. It was a nice acoustic performance. I enjoyed it.
The award for best Latin singer didn’t go to my boy Enrique but to Shakira. Sigh!!!
Finally the Black Eyed Peas performed with their dancing robots again just like last year. They sang:” Time of my life’ and of course that reminds me of Patrick Swayze and Jennifer Grey. Fergie was in a low cut dress and they had some good dance moves.
This ends the first hour.
