The “American Music Awards” went down last night, and as usual, they were pretty much the anti-“VMAs”.
They were so tame even MILEY CYRUS failed to shock when she closed the show with “Wrecking Ball“. Her outfit was skimpy, but all she did was stand in one place in front of a giant video image of a kitten that was mouthing the words to the song.
Meanwhile, some overly-sensitive people are calling KATY PERRY’S performance racist, because she dressed like a geisha . . . and LADY GAGA performed with R. KELLY. (You can watch ALL of the night’s performances here.)
TAYLOR SWIFT was among the big winners. She took home trophies for Artist of the Year, Favorite Country Album, Favorite Pop / Rock Artist and Favorite Female Country Artist.
JUSTIN TIMBERLAKE took home three awards: Favorite Pop / Rock Male, Favorite Soul / R&B Male Artist and Favorite Soul / R&B Album.
