MusicMonday: AMAs Recap, Free Downloads

American Music Awards

The 37th Annual American Music Awards were held last night at the NOKIA Theatre in Los Angeles. Here's a recap:

  • The ceremony was less about giving out awards (only a fraction were handed out on the air) and more about the performances.
  • There were 18 performances in total during ABC's three-hour telecast -- with four by alumni of FOX's American Idol -- Adam Lambert, Carrie Underwood, Kelly Clarkson and Chris Daughtry (with his band, Daughtry).
  • The most controversial performance was by last year's Idol runner-up, Adam Lambert. Luckily he closed the show -- because the adult subject matter was better suited for the late hour! Click on Lambert's image above to view the performance.
  • Taylor Swift continued her amazing run this year by winning the most awards -- five -- including Artist of the Year.
  • The late Michael Jackson won four awards -- and now has a record 23 lifetime AMAs -- more than any other performer.
  • A complete list of winners can be found here.
  • The telecast was watched by 14.2 million viewers -- the largest overall audience for the show since 2002.
