Filed under : Entertainment, Music

Rihanna arriving at the 2009 American Music Awards. She wore a Spring 2010 black and white Marchesa gown with rosette cut outs.

Wow, this time last year, I was in Los Angeles, California, covering the 2008 American Music Awards for BlackTree TV. I  even interviewed CHRIS BROWN, 2008 Artist of the Year, American Music Awards.

Last year’s nominees in this category were Chris Brown, Rihanna, Taylor Swift, and Kanye West. And what a difference a year makes! Chris Brown got into it with Rihanna and ‘Ye “Kanye West’d” Taylor Swift at the 2009 MTV Awards….phew!

Here are some of the highlights from tonight’s broadcast of the 2009 American Music Awards! [Winners list below…]

Janet Jackson performed a medley of her hit songs…

Rihanna performs her songs, “Wait Your Turn” and “Hard LIVE“…

Some red carpet lovelies…

Alicia Keys in a blue embellished printed Giorgio Armani mini dress from the Spring 2010 line

Alicia performed “Empire State Of Mindwith Jay Z…they both rocked! Definitely one of my favorite performances of the night. Later on Alicia performed “Try Sleeping With A Broken Heart”…

Love this song…

Carrie Underwood

    Great coverage of the AMA’s, great fashion! I really feel like Lady Gaga was robbed of an AMA, but i’d rather have Taylor win in undeserved categories than have Miley Cyrus back in the limelight 😉
