I remember when I was a kid when the American Music Awards used to be a great award show. Great performances. Just a live feel. Since they moved to November a few years ago where the Grammys put a ban on anyone performing on the AMA's could appear on the Grammys, it just really has not been the same. They don't even tell you who will be there, just who is nominated.
I hate that rule. Just make it so they don't do the same damn dumb song is all. Just one of the reasons why the industry sucks right now big time. It will be held at the Nokia Theatre on November 23rd. Labels are not shelling out big time props for award shows but expect something a little bit bigger in budget than the MTV VMA's.
Jimmy Kimmel will handle the hosting duties, while New Kids on the Block, the Jonas Brothers, and Pink will entertain the crowd with live performances. Decent line-up so far. But where is AC/DC? Where is Guns N Roses who have a CD coming out that month? Where is Britney? You want ratings, you get Britney, witches!-Dr.FB
