The American Music Awards Are Beautiful, No Matter What You Say

Nov 20th, 2008 // 4 Comments

Christina Aguilera will open Sunday’s American Music Awards with a seven-minute rundown of her greatest hits, no doubt as something of a way to goose the slightly anemic sales of her brand-new career retrospective. I mean, of course it could be worse: Last year’s opening medley, which could have easily been renamed and Nicole Scherzinger’s Cavalcade Of Stiffs, was actually 12 minutes long, a fact which I recalled thanks to counting the minutes in my liveblogging of that blessed event. And speaking of liveblogging, hey, we’ll be here on Sunday night at 8 p.m. ET for Christina’s medley, as well as performances by Beyonce, the Jonas Brothers, Kanye West, Ne-Yo, and Coldplay. Not to mention the hostly “stylings” of Jimmy Kimmel, who I hope will not have me gnawing off one of my arms by the time the clock strikes 10. [Us]

    “a seven-minute rundown of her greatest hits”

    Yeah, but like five minutes of that is just going to be melisma over the word “love”.
