American Music Awards 2010

Monday, November 22, 2010

I watched the American Music Awards last night, which was a good show this year. Rihanna opened the night up for some great performances. Pink, momma-to-be, kicked ass with her performance of "Raise Your Glass", Taylor showed off her gorgeous sleek, straight hair, Christina sang "Express" from her upcoming movie Burlesque, and of course (no surprise) Justin Bieber won Artist of the Year.

I pretty much agree with the outcomes of all the winners. Except for alternative rock artist - I was hoping either Phoenix or Vampire Weekend would win, but Muse did instead.

Best part of the night? NKOTBSB - also known as, New Kids on The Block + Backstreet Boys! Loved it! Felt so old being such a fan, but brought back some good memories :)

I didn't watch this, but Christina looks gorgeous and I do love that Pink song. I think they're going a little overboard on the Justin Bieber love though...
