So they have the balls to call all that formulaic aural diarrhea "music"?

Hmm.

They aren't real awards. That isn't real music. Those aren't real artists. No, I won't be watching.

There are some really exciting things happening in the country/western genre lately. This ain't your daddy's Hot Country anymore.

Yeah, its turning into the country version of Christian Rock. Just substitute 'horse' or 'truck' for 'baby'.

nah, it's even worse when they keep "horse" and "truck" in there as it feels fake as hell and more like a songwriting cliche than a genuine experience.

Pitbull is hosting this year and folks scheduled to appear include One Direction, Miley Cyrus, Imagine Dragons. and Lady Gaga

I would be happy to give Taylor Swift a "meaningless award" if you know what I mean.

I've traditionally not watched this, and I intend to keep this tradition going.

I also don't get who the audience for these awards shows are supposed to be. Teenagers?

This. I love all music including country, but modern FM radio country sounds like a Weird Al parody of the genre. Songs that start off with "I'd like to have a beer with Jesus" and "You were raised on an asphalt farm".

Really? farking really?

If I had one.  Seeing as I don't, she'll just have to settle for my tongue being crammed up her ass.

Will Miley Rae Cyrus light up a big fat joint and have the show censored from tight-ass U.S. TV?

I don't understand how an artist can be on the favorite Pop/Rock and Country catagory, one or the other but it shouldn't be both.

Well she's done everything else on the checklist short of actually disrobing and farking somebody onstage.  And considering the AMAs were Dick Clark's idea, I'm certain she'll make him hit Ludicrous Speed in his coffin.

There's too many things with AMA is their acronym, and at least two of them are retarded.
 
2013-11-24 08:35:55 PM
This seriously sucks.

I'll try to catch TLC later on just to see if they've reanimated  Left Eye.

It wasn't until recently I discovered Pitbull wasn't just a fake character in whatever commercials he shows up in (beer?), like the Most Interesting Man In the World.

Shrugging Atlas: It wasn't until recently I discovered Pitbull wasn't just a fake character in whatever commercials he shows up in (beer?), like the Most Interesting Man In the World.


I totally thought the same thing and was at a loss as to why they would cast that guy.
 
2013-11-24 09:30:40 PM
Americans likely know more about the ins and outs of the AMAs than they do about the ACA.

This. You fans of shows like this? Tell me who won Best New Artist 2 years ago (w/o googling it).

Yeah, thought so.

F*ck awards shows.
 
2013-11-24 10:03:58 PM
Not to mention there is not one single program on a Sunday night about midget porn or frisky Asian massage hostesses... you'd think with several so-called 'educational' and 'religious' networks, I would be able to view some sexy monkeys or some dancing blonde amputees that share a speech impediment or an eating disorder.

I love that he realizes he's too ugly to pretend to be a playboy like most male pop stars and settles for spouting gibberish about how rich he is instead. I think that's what he's talking about at least.

Trust me, you won't feel left out if you don't watch it.

Manning looks like he is going to hunt down the guy who farked up this game for him.

Taylor Swift looked amazing.  That's about all I know.

That crying kitten is symbolic of a the kittens killed due to the Wrecking Ball video.

ARTIST OF THE YEAR......etc.


Honestly, there isn't a single name on that list that appeals to me musically. Although Taylor Swift is on my bucket list.
 
2013-11-25 03:35:19 AM

The AMAs, like most music awards shows, feature the performers who have made the most money in the last year; there aren't a lot of surprises. That said, they do sometimes have some interesting and high budget productions of single songs by those artists, and by "interesting" I mean anything from abject failures to some spectacular examples of showmanship. A lot of people watch award shows to see those live performances, see what people wear, see if anything crazy and noteworthy happens.

relaxitsjustme: That crying kitten is symbolic of a the kittens killed due to the Wrecking Ball video.


Saw Katy Perry's number because I was washing dishes. I got done and got out ofd there before things got too ridiculous.

My daughter hit pause on the box and screamed for me to come see Miley's performance. I tried not to, but she was insistent. I lol'ed, then started singing "I came in like a camel toe" about halfway through. Wouldn't you know, they killed the lights on her lower body almost immediately, like they heard me or something.

Miley closed the show with Wrecking Ball, bringing more passion and pussy to the song then the AMA's have ever had.

And Taylor Swift looked like she could walk into any club in America and be the hottest one in it.
Usually her makeup is more designed for being camera-ready.
Tonight it was club warpaint and she was owning it!

No jazz or blues.  Fark the AMA and the derivative shiat they try to pass off as music.
