Kid Rock is about the best thing on there I hate to say
This is the official end of the American Music scene. Boy/girl bands and Karaoke singers from here to eternity. \
In 5 years, American Idol contestants will look like living Mozarts.
Oh dear, Katy Perry singing live
I love that Katy Perry song (sorry), but NOT when she''s singing it live. \
r2 - Willow Smith just introduced Justin Beiber, yes this is the end....
"Oh dear, Katy Perry singing live"\
There goes my milk. Oh well, I needed some cr%C3%A8me fraiche anyway.
Ugh, Justin looks so lesbianisque.
Love the Katy Perry song, but dear me!
I''m always offended when I see Rhianni and remember how she used that whole trumped up Chris Brown abuse thing - that she instigated - as a platform to stardom.
The AMA are the People''s Choice Awards. \
Where''s Queen Latifah?
Yes, r9. And Rhianna continues to dress like a street hooker.
Wow Katy Perry and Justin Beaver suck big time.%0D\
It''s sad when a boys choir outsings a supposed major star.
No, Miley...don''t sing!
Someone forgot to tell Miley that Halloween is over.
How did Rhianna use the Chris Brown situation for her career?
If Kelly Osbourne lost so much weight why are her arms and neck area so fatty?%0D\
What was with Samuel L. Jackson dressing like he was going to rake the leaves outside?
At least Pink quit doing that stupid trapeze shit while she''s pregnant, but she still didn''t even pretend to sing during half of her performance (although it did look like she had a live mic at times).\
And "too school for cool"? That''s some clever wordplay, Pink!
Is Jada serious with those kids? Jesus
Katy Perry is off every night. She cannot sing. Miley Cyrus is annoying but she can actually sing.%0D\
I wish all the Smith would retire already. So sick of them.
shut your ass, r11 Rihanna is dressing like a Caribbean woman
Justin needs vocal lessons badly, the background singers out sang him.
What was Christina Aguilera thinking?%0D\
She was much too fat in her thighs, stomach, and backside to be wearing that skimpy bathing suit sparkly thing and prancing around as if she has sex appeal!%0D\
She does not have sex appeal.%0D\
And the wig was so scraggly.%0D\
She made a fool out of herself once again.
[quote]Katy Perry is off every night. She cannot sing.\
No wonder Katy and Rihanna are best friends... they have something in common
Christina A. got fat.
Usher was great
Wow, such horrible singing tonight, worse was the Bieb.
Where''s Gloria Estefan?
[quote]Christina A. got fat.\
She did, but you know what - I give her a break. Whatever that marriage was about, she is not going through the happiest time in her life right now. I would hate it if someone picked on my appearance when I''m depressed.
Xtina may not be as hot as she used to be but she still sounds great!\
r42, it''s 2010 not 1985. I love Gloria but when was the last time she had a hit?
I agree, when I lost my bf of 2 years, I lost about 20 pounds.
R43, she didn''t need to do that silly faux sexy singing/dancing number in that ridiculous bathing suit.
Christina did not sound that good, R44.
Chris Brown is a piece of shit. He''s lucky Jay Z didn''t have him killed. Rhianna didn''t use the "beating as stepping stone for her career." You obviously have some weird issues.
Katy Perry can''t sing at all. I was willing to give her the benefit of the doubt after that shitty performance on X Factor, but tonight sealed it, she''s an autotune overproduced faker. I can''t believe she didn''t do something after X Factor to make it less obvious (other than trying to hide behind a whole choir of children and entering on a large sun.)\
The Band Perry guys just spoke and purses fell from both of their mouths.
I wish I cared about one of these people. Beyond the fact that many of these performer aren''t good singers to begin with, the AMA''s sound system sucks more than other award shows.
[quote] Rhianna didn''t use the "beating as stepping stone for her career." You obviously have some weird issues.\
Please. It got her sympathetic press for weeks, if not months. Everybody felt sorry for her. And then she does a song with Eminim about domestic violence? Add to that the very real possibility that she instigated the argument with Brown. She milked the shit out of her teeny weeny bruise.
This Santana-Rossdale Bang a Gong bit isn''t nearly as catchy as that Santana collaboration bit Give Me Your Heart Make It Real Or Let''s Forget About It with that Matchbox 20 queen from a few years ago.\
Still, it''s nice of Carlos to keep giving work to closeted singers.
TO: [R43] Oh, sweetie, I totally understand "Break Up Fat," but I would not dance on a stage in bad leotard outfit if that was the case. Just saying.
Gavin was Gay with a capital "G."
I like Enrique Igelsias, Rihanna, Black Eyed Peas, and Kid Rock. Everything else was shit. And while Taylor Swift looked a lot better, she looks like she is anorexic. Seriously. Way tooo skinny.%0D\
When I think that Jay Z is Rihanna''s manager, I have to wonder if he tapped that. It looks like she is getting her "choreography" from Beyonce''s teacher. Only, Rihanna knows how to move sexy. With Beyonce it''s just gross.
R51, you''re a real dipshit. I don''t want to derail this thread but I wonder what your past is like that you completely rewrote this situation to fit into to some weird anti-woman or anti-victim screed. You''ve got problems. Maybe someone needs to beat them out of you. You appear to be asking for it.
Re: Rhianna--yes, she DID milk that "domestic abuse" bullshit. She even had the nerve to go on 20/20 about it, and then turns around and releases a song with lyrics like "I like it when you pull my hair," which is clearly about rough sex. \
Boy, it''s scraping the bottom of the barrel when a former pimp and no-talent like Kid Rock is the best musical act on an awards show.
Justin Beber (not sure of the spelling)?????\
I thought almost every number was great, exciting, and produced creatively.%0D\
Great fun night!
WTF? Justin beating Usher and Eminem, on what planet?
Did Celine show up?
[quote]Please. It got her sympathetic press for weeks, if not months. Everybody felt sorry for her. And then she does a song with Eminim about domestic violence? Add to that the very real possibility that she instigated the argument with Brown. She milked the shit out of her teeny weeny bruise.\
True, she did receive sympathetic press, but the Chris Brown incident was after she was fairly established. She had sold millions prior to the incident. Not saying it didn''t give her a boost, but it hardly made her.
Kid Rock does have musical skills, which is more than can be said for the army of the tone deaf that paraded itself across the AMA stage tonight. \
It makes one wish for the ''80''s again. Rihanna makes Jody Watley seem like Jessye Norman in comparison.
The funniest part of Bieber winning - he walks by Katy Perry''s creepy minister father, Katy, Russell, and Russell''s huge bodyguard Danny and feels pressured into doing handshake-fistbump-hugs with them all. Then he calls up Usher to the stage!
This is the lamest show I''ve ever seen, including several VMAs.
And didn''t Miss Katy Perry look all pissy about not winning!
Did anyone see Janet Jackson?
Rhianna seems like a tough bitch. I think she probably gave as good as she got. She is not a good role model for young women in any way at all. The fact that she is best friends with la Perry is bad enough.
Yeah I''m sure Chris Brown was just as bruised and bloodied after their fight.
I thought it was one of the best shows ever - lots of excitement and fun music.%0D\
The audience was loving it.
Loved the Burlesque song by Xtina, but girlfriend looked like Paula Abdul performing Vibeology...
Avril Lavigne is dating Brody Jenner.%0D\
This show was atrocious. I hate these fucking awards shows that they invent where "the people" vote. That''s why Justin Beiber beats out Eminem.%0D\
This show is tired. At least at the Grammys they do inventive things. Sometimes.%0D\
Damn, but Enrique Iglesias is hot!
Who the fuck is that fugly bitch r78?
Omg, Michael Buble mentioning his gay fans! He''s so hot.
The Grammys have been consisting HORRID for a good number of years.%0D\
The AMA''s tonight were very inventive. The audience was having a blast, and it was one great creatively produced number after another.
I''m getting tired of seeing all this acts with the overly staged numbers. I say that as someone who grew up with MTV. There''s nothing special about it anymore.
No Enrique Iglesias talk? He looked hot!
Enrique Iglesias is hot, but the big fake wig somewhat diminishes his hotness for me.
WHO IS THIS AMA PR CUNT POSTING HOW GREAT THE SHOW WAS ON THE FUCKING THREAD?????????? \
STFU PR WHORE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Kei$ha just loves to [childish epithet posted by a bigoted tool] men dancers.
Beiber is Usher''s "protege". Of course, he''s fucked him.
Hey, what do think Kei$ha''s cunt looks like?
Is [childish epithet posted by a bigoted tool] a verb now?
Christina Aguilera was so embarassing. She obviously has really poor judgment.
I thought Christina actually looked better with some meat on her bones. She usually looks so damn bony.
Like open camel toe.
Christina has not looked ''bony'' for about eight years!
NO NKOTBSB talk?\
I liked watching the gay one move, with his chubby thighs and slight gut, sexy daddy.
Loved their number, R95!
Who knew Nick Carter had the most talent in that group?
I got a kick out of watching the singer from Train singing to the Backstreet boys/NKOTB in the audience.\
Justin Bieber is going to have a real swell head tomorrow.
"Justin Bieber is going to have a real swell head tomorrow."\
Usher will take care of it.
About Rhianna - if you remember, her interview on 20/20 was probably her only interview when she talked about this situation - she kept silent before that, and she told everything and answered all questions in this interview -I think with Diane Sawyer. \
I found this interview very impressive, honest and articulate, and I really like her ever since and have lot of respect for her. I don''t think she milked this story, she kept her silence for very long time and did huge interview only before promotional tour for her album started. \
As for song with Eminem - considering this incident with Brown hapened years ago, and very few people still care about it, I don''t think she is milking her abuse for attention. She just wanted to do a potential hit with one of the most famous and succesful artists. She should refuse offers like that just because she also was victim of domestic violence? This is ridiculous.
lol oh dear god
Now that Justin Bieber is artist of the year, Bristol will win DWTS...the sign of the times.
I wonder if Chris Brown''s career will ever fully recover. He doesn''t seem too bright with his rants and lashing out at Oprah and Sandra Rose. He should''ve kept his mouth shut for awhile. Let''s not forget his stupid BET performance.
Was Kylie there?
Chris Brown has a new song, Yeah 3x, that radio seems to be embracing.
Just a matter of time r102 before ASS will win Best Picture Oscar. Just a matter of time...%0D\
Just a few years ago people would laugh at the possibity of Beiber being nominated for Best New Artist Grammy but watch it happen...
Worst singer wins Artist of the Year? Who are the actual voters? This is insane!
You guys do know that there is a song on %0D\
Rihanna''s new album called "S & M" in which she sings of the delights of whips and cuffs.
Yes because liking S&M in the bedroom is the same as your boyfriend beating the shit out of you. Exactly the same.
[quote] About Rhianna - if you remember, her interview on 20/20 was probably her only interview when she talked about this situation - she kept silent before that\
But her agents, managers and PR people were busy planting stories in every entertainment publication and TV celebrity gossip show. Because she was just as much guilty of domestic violence as him, but they wanted her version of the story to get out first.
Media buzz was insane, but doesn''t necessary mean she and her people were behind it. She was incredibly upset when pictures of her beaten face were leaked because of police (stay classy, TMZ). There were a lot of information, opinions, but she was silent in all that till this big interview. \
As for domestic violence from her - where this story came from? I never saw pictures of Chris Brown beaten, with shapes of wheel on his face. But I saw her pictures. \
And Brown himself and his side acted just afwul in this story. Not only he never showed any remorse, he also leaked their personal pictures, trying to stop her from going to court. I believe those reports about her being guilty of domestic violence probably also came from him and his side. \
He''s pathetic asshole and I hope his career will never recover.
It''s different. Totally different.
So did Pink steal her song "Raise Your Glass" from Katy Perry? Or did Katy steal "Firework" from Pink?
Sue me, I actually like Ke$ha.
Gawd, BEP were terrible.
AMAs needed more American Idols. They can sing, at least the old school ones like Kelly, Carrie and Clay sure can. The new seasons suck as bad as pop radio.
"Was Kylie there?"\
No, she had the good sense to stay away because she knew all the acts were shit. \
Justin Fuck wins four awards? For what? A fucking pudding-bowl haircut? It certainly wasn''t for any singing talent.\
How does a skag like Avril Lavigne land a decent looking guy like Brody Jenner (yeah, he''s a tool, but a pretty one)?\
And the last word on Rhianna--she got beaten up by her boyfriend, and then turns around and releases songs about rough sex. She''s a) stupid or b) a hypocrite. Oh, and she can''t sing, either.
You are stupid if you don''t see difference between rough sex and domestic violence.
But yeah, she''s not the best singer.
R118/119, kiss my ass--who the hell are you calling stupid? The point is that this young woman is selling the idea that love includes physical pain to kids. The average age of a Rhianna fan is about 10. \
Don''t even get me started on the fact that she also has a fascination with semi-automatic weapons.
Hello, Maude Flanders! Such a touching care about kids.\
If you don''t like Rhianna - whatever. But you can dislike her without trying to justify domestic violence.
Yes, r116! Clay can sing in his new whispery, breathy way!
I see that little shit Beiber''s voice is finally breaking.
Are we sure Christina isn''t pregnant? I saw her on Ellen this week and she looked pregnant to me.
Is Ke$ha a virgin?
R122, you haven''t heard the new album. His voice has power and texture that rivals the greats. Clay''s voice is the best male voice in decades, maybe ever.
Jack Jones has the best male voice ever.%0D\
I agree that Clay does have an excellent voice.
[quote]Justin Fuck wins four awards? For what? A fucking pudding-bowl haircut? It certainly wasn''t for any singing talent%0D\
LOL! Unfortunately, it''s probably true. Every performer has some sort of a gag. For Justin Bieber, it''s the bowl haircut, and that''s what is part of his appeal. He''s like the Jennifer Anistan of Music.
I''m glad Muse won best alternative band.
I think Kelly Clarkson has a great voice, she could blow all those performers last night out of the water.
Janelle Monae could blow all those poseurs out of the water.
Ratings were way down this year. The demographic most likely to watch the show this year was the preteen crowd, those between the ages of 2 - 11. These kids are the ones who buy most the music today. They tend to be too young to do the illegal downloads their older brothers and sisters do. Justin, Katie Peery,%0D\
the Swift girl and Kesha are these kids'' idols.
You''re an idiot, R132. There is no measured 2-11 year old demographic. Stop fucking making shit up.
Age 2-11 demographic? My kid is 6 and she doesn''t want to listen to that crap or watch those performers on TV, she would rather be watching iCarly.%0D\
R133, I do know what I''m talking about. Do you think every sub-audience is not measured by the networks and by advertisers?%0D\
See the attached please. %0D\
In the old days, Bobby Sherman, etc sold records, for sure. But no one pretended the%0D\
teenybopper faves merited awards.
I actually work in market research and yes, there definitely is a 2-11 demographic.
Fine. So I was wrong. Fuck you anyway. LOL.
It''s sad that today''s audiences have excepted mediocrity.
LOL, did you write that on purpose, r138?
Katy Perry was horrible.\
Chris Brown''s texts were from a dude, if I recall correctly.\
The whole thing was a cover up.\
The guy has major issues.\
She played the victim (she was).\
She is cashing in.\
I blame this whole phenomenon of singers who can''t sing on Madonna. Seriously. And I''m a fan.
How long can Usher get away with his poor imitation of Michael Jackson?%0D\
His concert is just lipsyching to autotuned%0D\
recordings. I remember when black guys could actually sing. But yesterday''s truths no longer hold.
THe AMAs may get cancelled. Ratings were way down this year with Justin Beiber and the prepubes. The producers went way overboard making the show "family friendly". WTF! What ever happened to rock and roll? %0D\
Adam and Gaga, we missed you!
Why did any of you bother watching? Unless you actually like any of the performers, don''t watch.
Seacrest must be shittin'' brix.
What this got to do with Seacrest? And nah, don''t think it''s going to be cancelled - it''s still very high-profile event.
He''s the producer. Well, co-producer, but he''s the producer.
R146, it was exciting with creatively designed elaborate production numbers -%0D\
and most of the performers were at the top of their game and many did such an exciting job that they received standing ovations -%0D\
the audience loved the performances and were having a blast.%0D\
It was a great party.
Here''s what Dave Stewart, ex-Eurythmics, had to say about the AMAs:
