Tonight is the night for the American Music Awards!
Created by Dick Clark, the AMA’s celebrate pop music and all it has to offer. In the past, Michael Jackson, Britney Spears, and Justin Timberlake have all been honored with awards.
“The American Music Awards have nominations based on sales, airplay, activity on social networks and video viewing and can be nominated only the works released between 1 December of the previous year and 1 September of the current year” according to Wikipedia.
It’s a star-studded night when all of your pop music faves are in one building. Entertainment quality is high for the three hour event and the show is like a mix concert. Tonight you’ll see groups such as New Kids on the Block performing with the Backstreet Boys – a little sneak peek for their upcoming tour. Diddy will also be on hand, likely presenting an award.
Expect to see Christina Aguilera, Rihanna, Katy Perry, and Justin Bieber performing live, just to name a few.
The show airs on ABC at 8PM EST.
