AMA Recap: The Winners, Losers and Performers

View Comments

After the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards, the 2009 American Music Awards had a lot to live up to in terms of drama and performances.  Luckily, Lady Gaga & Jennifer Lopez did what they could, with Lady Gaga wearing a nude body suit while smashing glass and playing a burning piano, and Jennifer Lopez stumbling during her performance.

More important than the performances are the winners and losers.  The big winners of the evening were the late Michael Jackson, taking home four AMA’s to his new home in the sky and songbird Taylor Swift swooping in and earning five awards (no one got on stage during any of her acceptance speeches).  Perhaps, the big “whoa” moment last night happened courtesy of Adam Lambert, who puckered up onstage with a male dancer.  Check out the list of winners and losers and let us know if you think anyone was snubbed or forgotten in the comments!
