And the winner is... American Music Awards..!


It was the night of all nights in America for many reasons; not only to see who had won an American Music Award, but many wondered how Miley Cyrus will behave. It was fan-voted awards ceremony with some interesting winners and some cracking performances…

The night belonged to the youngsters with country-pop star Taylor Swift being the key winner securing FOUR music awards including artist of the year, as well as favourite Female Artist, Country singer and country album for Red.

Other big winners was smooth and handsome Justin Timberlake taking out three awards for The 20/20 Experience and Rihanna won best female Soul/R&B singer and even an Icon Award, which we sure she was given for being worked to death these last seven years. Did we say that out loud. Whoops!

Ariana Grande took out Best New Artist award and One Direction won two awards for Best Group and Best Pop/Rock album for Take Me Home.

Yet, as always, it’s the performances that stole the show. Here are our top three… firstly Katy Perry dressed as a elaborate geisha as she kicked off the show with a performance of her single Unconditionally from her album Prism...




Miley Cyrus didn’t disappoint when she sang her smash hit Wrecking Ball in front of a video projection of a ginger pussy cat, with the singer dressed in such a skin tight outfit, it REALLY didn’t leave much to the imagination…



Then Lady Gaga wheeled out R. Kelly to perform their hit Do What You Want in a presidential-themed performance which saw Gaga dressed in a silver sequined bodysuit behaving very reasonably...



And that was the highlights. Well unless you want to question what "Contemporary Inspirational" means as an award so we feel all we need to do is give you the full list of winners...
