So, the 2010 American Music Awards had a few decent performances to offer. Christina Aguilera promoted her new movie "Burlesque" with a performance that, well, wasn't her absolute best, but was still entertaining. Pink, pregnant & all, put on a great show as usual. Dirty Money gave me what I needed, yet has me wondering more than ever why Dawn couldn't have just sung the chorus like she does (wonderfully!) here. Rihanna, who opened the show, did so with a little "Love The Way You Lie (Part II)", followed (thankfully) by "What's My Name?" & ending with "Only Girl (In The World)". RiRi did her best! I must say though that she did look pretty good this evening. The Black-Eyed Peas, with their new-old garb, were still their typical selves. Usher frustrated me with that rehashing of his VMA performance & the whole NKOTBSB thing was just awkward. The winners, as usual, were nothing to write home about, but Usher did pick up two trophies for Favorite Soul/R&B Male Artist & Favorite Soul/R&B Album for Raymond Vs. Raymond, while Rihanna picked up Favorite Soul/R&B Female Artist, The Black-Eyed Peas received Favorite Pop/Rock Group, & Carrie Underwood's Play On won Favorite Country Album. The rest are HERE, but if you're not a 14-year-old girl, you won't like them.
