I hope I wasn’t the only one watching the American Music Awards 2005 last night. But then again, who else would have the patience to sit throught that snoozefest?
Cedric the Entertainer is the worst, most boring, most anal host there ever was. None of his jokes were even mildly giggle-worthy.
“Living Legend” (uh..) Cyndi Lauper performed her one of her (only) hit “Time after Time” with Sarah Maclachlan. I like Sarah’s voice but there’s no reason ANYONE needs to singe a SLOWER,ACOUSTIC version of Time after time…and they sang in BLACK AND WHITE? WHAT?
Will Smith took home an award for the only single he released this year..was it Snitch?Hitch?Bitch? Best Pop-Rock Male Artist? Am I missing something?
Last year Grammies (?) teased audiences all over the world with a “Never before seen performance by the Beatles”. I was thinking “Holy shit, half of them are dead!” and Whoa, was I in for a googly! They aired a filmed performance. What the!
Well they did the same thing this time at AMA with the Rolling Stones. Beamed their performance from Salt Lake City. How they can possibly insult the intelligence of an entire live audience with that crap is beyond me.
The only really cool performance was the very hot “Dirty Little Secret” by the All American Rejects.
But really, the thing that bothered me the most was the way each artist was introduced. “This pop star is a multi-platinum blah blah..and his albums have won critical acclaim..blah blah.. Ladies and Gentlemen, please welcome Jesse McCartney.” Errrr.
