It’s ME again!!! Feel free to leave your comments;)


The AMA’s were filled some of the music biz’s hottest entertainers… From the iconic nostalgia of Janet Jackson to the innovative hip hop stylings of the Black Eyed Peas, and the pillar of diva strength displayed by Whitney Houston There was some great energy in the performances of Keith Urban and Carrie Underwood Lola’s (Jennifer Lopez) “comeback” actually showed up in her performance, as she had to recover from an impromptu fall in the middle of her stimulating presentation Jay Z brought “The Don” swag with the pinky ring to match in his New York “Empire State Of Mind” song, an electrifying exhibition with the beautiful and talented Alicia Keys.She also unveiled her new single “Try Sleeping With A Broken Heart” in an engaging performance. Other honorable mentions include Kelly Clarkson (beautiful vocals),

Rihanna’s outfit ,

Mary J Blige (a soulful delivery only she can give)

and Lady Gaga (who seems to always stun and prove that she’s a talent force to be reckoned with)

Taylor Swift racked up winning 5, yes 5 AMA’s! She won more than the late, great Michael Jackson (expected to sweep his categories), whom she also beat for “Artist Of The Year”! Whoa… However, MJ garnered 4 trophies over the course of the evening, and broke the record for artist with the most American Music Awards totaling 23! …
