Gloriana, Taylor Swift, Michael Jackson Among The Big Winners At The AMA's - November 23, 2009
Last night was the American Music Awards and I tuned in and out on it so I didn't see the entire thing. The most exciting moment for me was seeing Gloriana win for Breakthrough Artists Of The Year. I've been a huge Gloriana fan since seeing them in concert a year ago. I've told the story but I watched them perform and after just ten minutes into their show, I then leaned over to my friends saying "I have a new favorite group". They've had an incredible year as they continue to grow and get attention. Seeing their reaction last night to winning the award was great!! Congratulations to Gloriana!! Taylor Swift was once again a big winner taking home the Artist Of The Year award beating out Michael Jackson, Kings Of Leon, Eminem, and Lady Gaga. Taylor also won for Favorite Female Artist in both the country and pop/rock categories, Favorite Artist in the Adult Contemporary category, and also for Favorite Country Album for Fearless. In the rest of the country categories, Keith Urban won for favorite male artist, and Rascal Flatts won for favorite band/duo/group. Michael Jackson won four out of the five awards that he was nominated for winning for Pop/Rock Favorite Male Artist, Favorite Album (Number Ones), Soul Rhythm & Blues Favorite Male Artist, and Soul Rhythm & Blues Album Of The Year (Number Ones). Jermaine Jackson accepted the awards for his brother. Other big winners included The Black Eyed Peas, Jay-Z, and Beyonce. Favorite soundtrack album went to the Twilight soundtrack. Hey, it might as well be another big finish to the incredible weekend that that movie has had. I didn't catch a lot of the performances cause I was in and out watching another show but Carrie Underwood was amazing with her performance of Cowboy Casanova. Congrats to all of the winners last night!!
