    I only watched until Whitney was on (tivo'd the rest and will watch later)
    But I have to say:


    JLo had the hottest song & male boxers (dancers) up to that point!
    Lady GaGa was her usual best.
    Whitney had a great 'been down the wrong road but I'm back" song.

    Thoughts?

    I was really disappointed in some of the performances -- most notably Rihanna (I think the new single "Hard" is awful, and I love her) and Adam Lambert's was a bit too trashy I think (though at least he was really singing because so many of the performances were lipsynched). I was also disgusted at the amount of times the camera went to Perez Hilton in the audience. He makes my skin crawl.

    And Janet's performance was bad. The outfit was bad, and how much was she edited in her new video? She looked hefty in that outfit. In the video, she looked like the Janet that looses weight when she has a concert or videos to shoot.

    Rihanna was a hot mess.

    Black Eyed Peas did an amazing job. Fergie looked amazing.

    Really??? I thought Rihanna's body was banging!!! and the 2nd song was hot like fire (although her stage presence is weak. maybe that's what you're referring to). On the other hand Fergie seemed flat to me but I only caught the last part of their performance.

    i thought Janet's performance was very good. Wasnt feeling the beginning but just like her tours, watching them on tv and being there are 2 seperate things. Seeing it live would've been something. Janet puts on a great show live.

    you can see majority of the videos at

    There's already a bit of a controversy brewing over Adam Lambert's performance. I think he and his handlers are making a huge miscalculation with some of the antics -- over the top CD cover, tonight's raunchy performance -- and it could hurt him. "Shock Value" works sometimes, but not always, and this could backfire if he's not careful. Simulating oral sex on TV while kids are watching doesn't go over real well with parents, middle America, or the FCC.

    Janet's performance was fine but her outfit was HEINOUS.

    Gaga was gagalicious and we love her for that.

    Rihanna and Glamberace were eye sores.

    It was okay
    Rhianna sucked, I dont like any of her new songs
    Lady Gaga sang very well, but I didn't like her outfit and that she kept the same choreography from the Bad Romance video
    Jennifer Lopez's "comeback"- the whole boxer comeback angle and already been done-and better-by Madonna, and Jennifer Lopez fell on her ass when she jumped off that guys back, luckily its so big and cushioned her fall.
    Adam Lamert is going have have a bunch of people talking about him, which is probably what he wanted.

    So that's why they did this funny slowmo thing on the west coast!!! I'm now understanding alot of the funky camera work I'm seeing. It's being edited for the tape-delay broadcast we get here in CA. When she jumped off his back they did a slo-mo cam thing. Though it's not a good thing to wish on someone, I would have loved to have seen the original. ;-)

    Adam's single was VERY disappointing...

    Gaga was great, Rihanna was "meh"


    I performed a little cover of Bad Romance, for those who care.
















    And by "I", I mean not me.

    Yup you read my mind!

    I thought Rhianna would sing Russian Roulette ( a MUCH better track)..
    this song she did was just off!
    Adam Lambert was trashy.. It was a lil way too over the top and trying to hard to shock..Poor guy took quite a dive on stage too
    JLO also took a dive..kinda sad here she was tring to show she was a champion of performers and has to fall in the act..
    Why do people place importance on unimportant guys like Perez i will never know..
    Janet was good..she at least put out all her good tracks and tried to keep up the energy but yeah she gained some weight..usually she at least has a slim body and abs of steel when she releases new cds..i guess her brothers death kinda put her in a bad place..

    I dunno about you guys but these award shows are kinda weak now a days..i rememember when acts put on some amazing shows..

    FINAL THOUGHT: Taylor Swift artist of the Year??? WHA???

    Rihanna was terrible. I am sick to death of Taylor Swift, a manufactured not-so-good talent. Janet was OK, but sick of her hair going in her face. Loved J-Lo's fall. I think it was cause the guy kept hold of her hand once she jumped off the other guy (I DVRed it and went frame by frame)

    Whitney was good, but I still have a feeling she is not all back to her game, or off drugs completetly.

    Adam is making a big mistake by not making better songs. His entire album is garbage. You don't sing great ballads on Idol, then toss that away with crap.

    * Black eyed Peas was Awesome!
    * Love Janet in the opening number.
    * Adam Lambert was - in his own world again.
    * Gaga is just too Crazy/Gaga.
    * Rihanna's costume was Hot.

    Didn't watch it, don't care for award shows or tv for that matter. But a friend sent me a youtube video of Shakira's performance. She looked completely fuckable.

    LOL true

    But I thought Shakira was Colombian and darker? She looked like a white girl with blond hair?

    Why, why, WHY, do they put Perez Hilton on TV!? That skank had the best agent in the world.

    I forgot most of the show because it wasn't really holding my attention, but here are the key points of the night for me...


    If Janet hadn't done [yet another] medley of her hit songs, I doubt anyone would've cared about her new one.

    Rihanna did fine, but I don't think anyone needed to call it her "return to the stage" or whatever. It was just her return to putting out new music.

    I love me some Kelly Clarkson and I always will, but the girl needs to lose some weight because her performances play a bit boring when they only consist of close-ups on her face.

    Whitney gets props from me for trying. She knows it wasn't great, so I feel like she'll be harder on herself than the media could be. Whatever that means.

    Alicia Keys' performance was stupid.

    I put Green Day on mute.

    Black Eyed Peas shouldn't have gone down the Megamix route.

    Lady Gaga continues to grow on me. She continuously proves her value to the entertainment industry and I look forward to the day when she's as big as Britney or Beyonce because this bitch is clearly The Future and we just have to accept it.

    I do not and have not ever cared for Adam Lambert. I understand the concept of Shock Rock, but I just hate when he does it. He's gross to me. And for those of us on the East Coast who saw his unedited performance, I feel like you'd agree that flicking off the camera, grabbing crotches, kissing a guy, and shoving a guy's face into his crotch was just so he could get more attention. He doesn't deserve it. He just screams and wears make up.


    That's my two cents!

    Who IS Gloriana? I thought it was funny the winner of AI just got to present, while the runner-up got to close the show. I liked the Black Eyed Peas, Kelly Clarkson sounded great. Like some of you said, why was Perez even there? His presence is way trashier than anything Adam did. I was kinda hoping that Janet would accept for her brother but instead we got Jermaine and Jermajesty(?!)

    Hey B-

    Jermaesty? I did not get that either what a name for a kid? That's not going to get you teased on the school.

    Sooo that's who fell. I thought it was a dancer. I did not know it was "The Queen of the Diva's. That dancer will never work with JLO ever again.

    Kharma is somehting else.icon_biggrin.gif

    What I saw of the American Music Awards. I liked most of the acts.
    Lady Gag Me. I just don't get her.

    Lambert just made me want to blow my ears off and pull my eyes out of their sockets. He is being soo mis-handled. Living on the east coast I saw the unedited version. Kids were watching that show could you imagine being a parent watching it with your child? Even I switched the channel.

    This has already happened... Lady Gaga is the first artist in billboard's 17 year history to have 4 number one singles off a debut album.

    Rihanna looked great, I just wish she had performed "Russian Roulette" (which has really grown on me and is really haunting) than that mess of a song that I am not feeling at all ("Hard")

    As I said in another thread, poor Janet looked like an elf working for UPS. But you gotta love her!

    It was overall disappointing.

    Gaga felt...confined, which seemed odd. The speechless part was far better than the Bad Romance part.
