Tonight was the 2009 American Music Awards broadcasted live on ABC, and I have to say it was quite a show. The performances were for the most part pretty amazing, and the setup looked really good.
But seriously, who designed the packaging for the show ? It looked like a cheap 1998 game show packaging. If anyone knows please drop it in the comments.
To come back to the show though, I must point out some amazing performances from Jay-Z and Alicia Keys performing “Empire State of Mind”, and a very nice comeback performance from Rihanna also. Even if the setup for his part was the least impressive, it was still great to see Eminem spit fiery verses off “Crack a Bottle” and “Forever”. Last but not least, something that is going to make the front page on every tabloid tomorrow is Adam Lambert’s performance, that involved him kissing another guy and having a guy simulate a BJ on him.
Here are a few videos from the AMA:
