American Music Awards Special!

 

This Sunday saw some of America’s greatest musician take to the stage to perform and take home the prestigious American Music Award, all live from the Nokia Theatre in LA.

 

The show was opened by Barbadian superstar Rihanna, who performed a medley of tracks of her new album ‘Loud’. The ‘Umbrella’ singer opened with the haunting ‘Love The Way You Lie Part 2’ before belting out new single ‘What’s My Name’ and ‘Only Girl (In The World)’. Other performances of the night included Ke$ha, Black Eyed Peas and a newly pregnant P!nk. Christina Aguilera also gave a sneaky peek of what to expect of her new film ‘Burlesque’ by performing the track ‘Express’ taken from the movies soundtrack.

 

Bieber Fever struck gold this year, with Justin Bieber, taking home an impressive four AMA’s, including the much sought after ‘Artist Of The Year’ award, facing off tough competition from Eminem and Katy Perry.
