  • American Music Awards 2007

    The 2007 American Music Awards aired last night on ABC. Jimmy Kimmel hosted for the fourth year in a row; however instead of doing his usually comedy shtick, due to the writer’s guild strike, Kimmel decided to show off his pitiful dance moves. After dragging American Idol winner Jordin Sparks and season 4 Idol contestant Kellie Pickler, to the stage, the trio did a horrible rendition of the Crank Dat Soulja Boy dance, with Soulja Boy there to supervise. This year for the first time the fans got to vote for their favorite artists online and the winners were selected on air last night. Akon walked away with Favorite Soul and R&B Male Artist, while Rihanna, known for her pop and dance hits walked away the winner in the female category. The artist seemed confused as to why she was even nominated for this category and gave props to the other ladies nominated like Alicia Keys. Speaking of the songstress, Keys had the best performance of the night, performing her roaring hot single, No One. The stage was decked out in a summer beach party theme, and Junior Reid came to the stage to sing the reggae remix. Chaka Demus and Pliers also graced the stage with throwback song, Murder She Wrote and Beenie Man, dressed from head to toe in a white ensemble performed Girls Dem Suga. Alicia Keys also surprised fans when she broke into some cute dance moves, which was a nice change for the star who’s often seen behind a piano. Chris Brown’s performance was also memorable, although it did not top his performance at the MTV Music Awards. Brown performed song Kiss Kiss with T-Pain while pulling off his signature acrobatic dance moves, glow in the dark style. Beyonce was presented with the International Artist Award by a stumbling Usher, who just couldn’t seem to get his lines together. Beyonce showcased just how versatile she is by singing a country version Irreplaceable. Other winners included rapper T.I., who was awarded with favorite Rap/Hip Hop male artist and album. Bone Thugs N Harmony walked away with best Duo. Justin Timberlake, who had a big year with hit after hit, walked away with the most awards including, favorite Soul/R&B album and favorite Pop/Rock artist. Mary J. Blige, Rihanna and Ne-Yo and Will.i.am and Nicole Scherzinger also took the stage. British rock stars Duran Duran closed the show performing songs chosen by fans.
