2010 American Music Awards: List Of Winners & The Four Best Performances

Rihanna's red wig made her look like Jennifer Beals in Flashdance, Pink strangely sounded a bit off for once (give her a break—she's pregnant!), Christina Aguilera looked like a stripper (business as usual) and the much-hyped New Kids On The Block vs. Backstreet Boys mashup was pretty anticlimactic.

Still, these were the four best performances from last night's 2010 American Music Awards (catch the two worst here):

    I know you love P!NK like the euphemism for anus that it is, but when has she ever sung live and not been off-key and/or struggling for the majority of it??? I still remember vividly her performance of "Most Girls" from the AMAs in the late 90s wherein she proceeded to slag off Xtina, Brit and Destiny's Child, but sang THE WHOLE SONG in a completely different range and key than what her backing track was set at. Eeek!

    wow...this is how unexciting our music awards have become. They pick a handful of artists and distribute the awards in between them. The whole justin bieber thing will always be a puzzling phenomenon. That there is a pre-teen market for him is not surprising. I just don't get how adults listen to this kid like he is an actual musician.

    Joshua, I have no recollection of that, but am off to YouTube it!

    Pranav, yeah -- he gets props from EVERYONE, which is kind of a head-scratcher. That said, he *does* play piano, guitar and drums, and he's only 16. Still...
