These are my notes on some of the highlights from the 2011 American Music Awards.
As demonstrated by his amazing performance, Chris Brown is not just a pretty face. The fact that he did not win best R&B/soul album is a farce and just one more demonstration that the AMA awards are a joke.
Jennifer Lopez is the most talented performer alive – she’s an actress, a dancer, and what a singer! I’ve always had a soft spot for Jenny From Around The Block, but when you see her perform live you really get what she’s all about. Her singing is so perfect it sounds impossible. History will probably regard her as the most important female black artist of all time, you wait and see.
I dunno, I guess I’m over Taylor Swift, who already appears to be losing her looks. Look for her to be “boosting her career” by posing nude about ten years from now, when it will have been eight years too late.
Not a huge fan of hard rock, but I don’t mind Maroon 5.
I liked Bruno Mars’ voice better when it was in Michael Jackson, but since the King of Pop isn’t using it anymore I guess we will take what we can get.
I’m in love with Katy Perry, who just may have, and be, the most powerful female voice we have today.
What is with the Foo Fighters? Every once in a while they get an award for something, and you’re like, “um, hasn’t your singer been dead for like 20 years?”
I’m getting old. I can’t stay up to watch these kids jump around anymore, so I’ll post my notes in the morning.
