The AMA Performances & Other Ish

I'm still bitter I put off watching the "True Blood" season finale for this Awards show. But whatev. Beyonce performed her usual routine for "Single Ladies": I would have been more enthused had she brought out the tanginess that is that Youtube dude in the swimsuit working this routine out extra hard. She looked fab nonetheless. Ne-Yo performed a couple songs: And so did the Pussycat Dolls: I'm not even a huge PCD fan or anything but these chicks worked it the hell out on stage. And Mariah received the Special Achievement Award for recently breaking pretty much every record held by Elvis and being the highest selling artist of all time PERIOD. Nice. More pics and video of the performances when you read the rest... Rihanna copped a couple awards. So did Kanye. And T-Pain presented an award to Chris Brown.

Ne-Yo's medley of "Miss Independent" and "Closer"


Pussycat Dolls medley of "I Hate This Part" and "When I Grow Up"


Beyonce's "Single Ladies" Stay tuned for performances from Rihanna, Kanye, And Alicia Keys....

I think someone should tap

I think someone should tap Beyonce on her shoulder and tell her for her to be on ICON status she has to possess some type of originality and her last two albums were anything but. There's a whole lot of biting going on here and I'm not feeling it or the way these blogs keep jocking her as if she's the hottest and she's only copying what's already been done. You guys will see what I'm talking about when the photos of her new video "Diva" comes out...

Point blank, music being

Point blank, music being played today is GARBAGE. But they are successful so whoopdie doo! On to more important things like real entertainment: TRUEBLOOD! I wished the show was 2 hours long! It was CRAZY! I cannot believe they killed my boy Layfayette like that. He was a main character. I suspected that Bill may have fed on him, cause Bill aint perfect, but I hope not. From someone who reads mysteries on the regular, it never is who you think it is. Renee being the killer threw me alllllll the way off! I loved his little cajun butt! He really hid that crazy-lol. Tara and Jason about to get themselves in all kinds of trouble next season. They need to put True Blood out sooner. I'll give them til April cause next summer is too long! This has been some must see tv. I guess Ill have to cut HBO off til then cause no other movies are out.

Those are professional

Those are professional dancer's undies... the ponytail pulled up is voguing at a gay ball/fashion show... kinda means "I'm the shyt bytch" hmmm well I don't get into the awards show esp when fans vote..... but hey that's just how it is...Ri and Chris' label did an excellent job at marketing Ri and hooking her up with Chris they def knew what was up.... the bonus was they happened to fall for one another ... pretty young lady... she definately came up quickly esp after hooking up with Chris cuz pon da replay girl would have been an over site the hook up forced people to pay attention to her because Chris had more popularity aside of Ne-yo (who declined)at the time

To me both Beyonce's & Ri

To me both Beyonce's & Ri Ri's performance were the most unforgettable of the night. I hated the stage set that Ri Ri had....to much fire and bullcrap & the only part that I liked of Bey's was the beginning when she first walked on & maybe the end part when she did the little added part before she pulled the ponytail up(still don't get why...)....but everything between that part was BORING!!!

I liked Pink, but I prefer her when she first came out when she was more R&B with "There you go"..(and I know ya'll know that song). Uh, who else...I liked Mimi and Alicia. Maybe it's just because I'm older I don't like Rhianna and Chris Brown. But back to NKOTB, lol, step off haters!

I was thinking either that woman that Tara is staying with or what if Bill feasted on him. But then would that even make sense considering he knew he was Sookie's coworker and friend?? Or it could be that woman that Tara is staying with. Do you think she is a werewolf or a shapeshifter like Sam?? I liked Beyonce's performance, Neyo, and Pink.

People, people,

People, people, people...please realize that everyone has an opinion. Not everyone is a hater and if they are, it's not your job to tell them off. I'm sure these Beyonce STANS are gonna talk ish about other celebs or other people in life....this website is full of praises and disses so quit cyber thuggin' on people if they don't share the same views. I don't know if these are just teens who think they can get away with it and go about their day feelin good because they told somebody off online, but it's immature. Grow up.

all i hav to say is that

all i hav to say is that there r a lot of FEMALE beyonce HATERS. it's so senseless. it's so obvious that she has RAW talent that is obviously recognised whether you ladies like it or not. i mean in her music, even though u women say u dont like her, she still takes it upon herself to represent your feelings in her music to empower you women and all rihanna does is sing music that doesnt make sense or just to dance in the club or to not stop music, she just wants money, she's a money hoe, but beyonce wants women in general to feel empowers and represented. so please think abt who ur rooting for as a true artist. that performance of single ladies was sick, classic performance and rihanna was just horrible, and that eye path made no sense, she looked like a gothic pirate. All the women at the show represented besides rihanna. so give credit where it is due please my ppl and stop hating where you know credit is due. it's really pety

Girl can sing and dance at the same time and sounds amazing... and all the while in those heels. The audience was LOVING it, every female in there was on her feet waving their single ladies hand! GET IT B! I agree, A. Key performance was fire, adding that Opera singer was genius! Keys is a true musician. Um... RiRi just stood there and TRIED to sing that song... BORING! Sounded like a cat being strangled. I'm sorry but people need to open their ears and stop being mesmerized by this chick's fabulous outfits. She was working that 80's glam/punk look though, I'll give her that. Maybe she should think about modeling full time, hey it would save us from her god awful performances!

Did you not see that the audience was on their feet through Bey's entire performance, from the moment she was introduced they jumped up?! Did you not see Queen and some random older white woman doing the Single Ladies hand move? Single Ladies done? I think not. It's been #1 on iTunes(vid and single) since it was released.

ummmm, who said Rihanna will

ummmm, who said Rihanna will never be bigger than Mariah would be??? Where the hell did that come from???I'm sick of people comin at Rihannna's head, she is only 20 years old and is doing her thing... I know the judgement will occur, but point blank people need to let her live and develop as an artist just as we've let Beyonce and everyone else. EVERYONE HAS THEIR OWN PLACE IN THIS INDUSTRY... puttin all these black female artists against eachother is silly as hell. Beyonce= Fabulous Rihanna= Fabulous Alicia Keys= Fabulous Mimi= Fabulous Let's quit hating and appreciate their differences and unique placement in the game... All the while these "Beyonce Stans" or whatever are trying to come at EVERYONE's head, shit we never know her and Rihanna could be out kickin right now as we speak.... let it go... buy the albums and stop being so negative. I respect and love Beyonce, but give Rihanna the props she deserves... over and out

Usually in her concerts, if Beyonce would do a suggestive move she would cover herself up or turn.

On the Sasha cd side she refers to herself as "that bitch", and on Video Phone she talks about some dude taping her "nekkid". Come on Beyonce!

My 12 year old and I were watching the video and as soon as she did that dang move my 12 year old daughter was like Ugh! Why did she do that! Thank you..for once someone else is on the same page. Just keep it classy like it was...now anything goes just to stay on top! SMH!!

Why is it that it has to be

Why is it that it has to be someone that did better than the next. The AMA itself was great. I'm not giving props to no one but Alicia Keys for the simple fact it shows that she isn't the least intimidated by anyone and is truly a entertainer/songstress because she always give cred to others and therefore shares the stage with other great ones! Congrats to Mariah, she earned it.

BEYONCE: As usual, no matter

BEYONCE: As usual, no matter how much you hate, the girl is an entertainer! Gotta luv her! I've seen her in concert and she works hard. The performance was basically a reenactment of the video... Rihanna: I've been saying all along (since pon de replay), the girl CANNOT sing, however, she IS beautiful, stylish and fun to watch. DID NOT LIKE THE DIAMOND PIRATE EYEPATCH or the performance dominatrix outfit. Performance was comme ci comme ca. NE YO: I totally missed his performance :~( ALICIA KEYS: Bringing out tha QUEEN was genius. I loved the opera singer addition too. Ppl didn't like Kathleen Battle's opera part cuz they not used to exploring other genres of music. But we (black ppl) be killing it in opera too (!) and any other field we enter. We got it like that! KANYE: The racoon tail was hilarious! But he is getting more and more weird... And I know this is YBF, but: PCD: WACK WACK AND MORE WACK!! Why were they invited to perform?? NKTB: While I have the single, "Single" in my ipod, I did NOT care for that performance. Performance was wack, they are old, it's time to let go! PINK: She and Sarah McLachlan shared a beautiful, classy duet Pink was killin that song :~D NATASHA BEDINGFIELD: This white girl can SANG!!! If you didn't catch her, youtube it. She was awesome.

Overall, the AMA were not

Overall, the AMA were not great. There were some serious highlights, but even more down falls. Pink- Fantastic performance, kinda wished she had sang the other song tho. But still great. Christina- was off in the dance department but the vocals were ok. She didnt over sing as much as normal, so that was a good thing. She really used to know how to work it but I guess that baby had an effect on her. Beyonce- was good. Actually coming in at a close tie for first with A. Keys. It would have been a clear first if she didn't seem as though she was a bit tired. She didn't quite do it as full out as I have seen on her recent performances. But still better than most. A. Keys- was great. I am not a fan of that song, but I can admit that the performance was outstanding with the special guests and all. PCD- or should I say Nicole and backup dancers, were good dancers. Vocals werent good tho. But I don't think anyone expected them to be. Neyo- was kinda boring but always sounds good. Didnt quite feel the fit. Kanye- is strange as always L. Lewis- did a great Mariahish version of her songs. RihRih- Looked great but can't sing and was very stiff and boring. Maybe she is trying to beat out Mariah for the "who can stand the most still during a performance award" not sure Mariah- deserved the award but cant perform for her life. That's it. I guess I have said my peace.

The truth with no agenda. A.

The truth with no agenda. A. Keys is the truth and her performance was great - REAL music! Bey - born performer, beautiful woman. But she is a WOMAN though, with a real woman's body and I find it kinda hard to watch her 'paroxyms' of dance sometimes. She tries hard and I appreciate it, but she sometimes looks a little frantic. Sorry. PCD - trained dancers/show girl, so they turned it out. I actually like the 'when I grow up' song. But they are not great singing talents by any means. Rihanna - sounded much better than I have ever heard her, but she is still NOT a live performer. She's a real BEAUT tho. And the patch was cool - for her.. she's in her 20's and edgy and she can get away with it. Done.

Before Rap there's was rock so I know my music! What I am saying is that it's disrespectful (MY OPINION) to the fans, if u are given an award, take it! You cam give the other artist your props, there's nothing wrong with that![/quote] You are obviously angry about something. Everyone on the site is chatting and giving their point of view, and it's just that an opinion I did no try to enact a new law against praising other artist. Lighten up, and grow up, learn how to have adult conversation. Peace you need it.

You would be surprised by how much you might like the music when you look beyond the color of the artist. Just saying.[/quote] Did you ever read somewhere in my comment that I am stuck in a box? I LOVE all tyoe of music MORE SO then probably you. I love Annie Lennox! I never said I didn't like Coldplay? They are awesome! I was raised in the 80's: Boy George, Madonna, Highie Lewis and the News, America, Chicago, Air Supply, Duran Duran, Eagles, I even like Dolly Parton, love me some Kenny Rogers, should I go on? Before Rap there's was rock so I know my music! What I am saying is that it's disrespectful (MY OPINION) to the fans, if u are given an award, take it! You cam give the other artist your props, there's nothing wrong with that!

That settles it.. Bey is the

That settles it.. Bey is the baddest chick in the game and Rihanna is no comparison.. First when she banks 80 million dollars a year then she can talk. Then when she learns sing and dance at the same time she may be able to be in the same category as Bey. Beyonce's performance was so dynamic she should have started the show.. But then the rest would have not been worth watching. She was surely a hard act to follow. I am so happy for her. This was a great jump off to her new album. The holding of the pony tale was for the haters. Anyway I loved her expression. Neyo put on a good good show. The dancer was graceful. Oh.. and I enjoyed Miley, even she had more energy than Rihanna. Rihanna is a pretty face with no substance she prolly can't even Co write a song. Her performances are always lazy and she always embrace something dark I can't put my hand on it and I don't want to either... She is no competition.. And lastly she just might need to get a ring on it.. Ha Ha.. Oh my .. Mariah and Nick.. I always embrace then because I am an ambassador for love but, I wonder if him walking her out was her idea or his, either way it looked kinda cheesy and demeaning. I had my first gut bustin laugh at their expense. And if you took time to read everything I had to say bless you, this my valid opinion and as the saying goes, we are all entitled to that. Love and be loved.. Have a better day..

[quote comment="303515"]Did

[quote comment="303515"]Did anyone notice that Beyonce missed a couple of steps. She stilled did ok, but I am getting tired of that dance routine. I think Neyo’s performance was good a lil’ throw back to Morris Day and the Time. Alicia and Queen Latifah with that opera singer was awesome. I actually enjoyed this award show, the performers performed live with their vocal skills. Mariah still got it. This show beat out the MTV, BET and the Grammy’s. I also believe that Kanye needs to see a therapist! He just needs to to away for a while, is he bipolar? How come Beyonce was not sitting in the audience? Why? Because she wasn’t nominated for anything? Oh yeah, Punk was good a well, I liked her purple dress with pockets. Rhianna looked cute as always! I think compared to her previous performances this is her best ths far! I AM SICK AND TIRED OF BLACK ARTIST KISSING WHITE ARTIST ASS!!! U ONE AN AWARD - TAKE IT! THE AMA'S WAS VIEWERS CHOICE. CHRIS BROWN, TAKE YOUR AWARD AND BE HAPPY WITH IT! COLDPALY WOULD NOT SAY "OH, I WANT TO GIVE THIS TO CHRIS BROWN". THAT'S LIKE OBAMA SAYING "MCCAIN SHOULD HAVE WON". PLEEEEAAASSEE! AND AS FOR KANYE?? LIKE THE HOST SAID, "FIRST HE CRIES AND COMPLAIN TAHT HE DOESN'T GET ANYTHING" AND WHEN HE DO, HE COMPLAINS SOME MORE!

"Ok B was good at her OWN

"Ok B was good at her OWN preformance. Im sorry but shes so damn repeatitive. Aren’t preformances at award shows supposed to be DIFFERENT then the VIDEO? At least in a few ways??? Not only the dancing but the vocals in the song… ie: Leona Lewis (who sings flawlessly!!!) changed up her original song Better In Time and it was Mariah-esk!! Loved it.. But back to B, since she is the star of this site (if she isnt then who is lol?)… Her preformance wont be memorable, except the part where she grabbed her clip on pony tail. The “glove” reminds me of the TERMINATOR. I know she wants to stay relevant but I expect more from her. Shes been out for maybe 8 years ish. She should move pass the Single Ladies, Get me Bodied, Crazy in Love, Ring the Alarm etc dance & beats. Really is her new album a reflection of her growth as an artist post-BDAY album?? Im just sayinn…. Again, Alicia & Leona & Mariah & Rihanna, Pink & THEE Sarah Mclaughlin KILLED the preformaces. YOu dont need a “glove” to get noticed. Okay even PCD did their thing." So you want performers to perform their songs like they do on the record and that tells you if they can really sing....look at Rihanna!! She can't sing any of her songs like they sound on her CD EVER!! That really shows Bey's artistry!

I was shocked that Bey's

I was shocked that Bey's performance was the same it has been for the past few weeks. She rocked but I was expecting Sasha to show up, not a fake replacement. "True Blood" is the shit! I hate that I recorded it. I should have watched it on the first go round!

Anyways, great performances

Anyways, great performances by A.Keys, she's stunning, both beauty and talent, as Bey. Pink, Sarah M, Neyo did good as well. Now some people were just vocally challenged, and that's the end of that. If some people don't see now they never will, it was clear to see tonight, especially when they were performing on the same stage as talented vocalists, and dancers. A shame.

Beyonce definitely ruled that

Beyonce definitely ruled that stage last night. She gave a great performance. For people talking about she didn't evolve, or her music is only for a younger age group and how she's thirty she shouldn't be singing certain types of songs, well from the looks of it the entire crowd gave her a standing ovation. On top of that Queen Latifah was to her feet, as well as what looked to be Felicity Huffman who is UP there in age, all of these people were doing the SL dance and grooving, having a great time. It was an upbeat performance, an upbeat song. I hope some people are living their lives in a manner that would lend them to offer such harsh critiques. Especially of an entertainer I feel like is owning it musically wise, u don't have to like the music but don't be a hypocritie writing essays about someone you don't like. Beyonce had two backup dancers, singers, and an ALL FEMALE band, killing it. She's a true singer and entertainer. It did not sound just like the record, it was something new, now if you weren't on blogs all day constantly seeing every award show she was on to critique her performance and talk bad then you wouldn't notice how much it was like SNL, etc. (which it was different from) Unless that breakdown in the performance is on the c.d..in the beginning and end, and the extra jazz like riffs at the end, were in the song. Tell me. You give Beyonce more exposure as someone said, follow all the artists you do love. Her fans, and others can see she has evolved performance wise, and music wise especially on this newere c.d. If you never liked her you never will and will keep having these same arguments. All the while, continuing to make Beyonce one of the most discussed, searched for, entertainers. She must be intriguing to you somehow, for you to disect her that much. Think about it. Good day.
