Robbie Daw / November 22, 2010

A careful look at the nominess for Sunday’s American Music Awards should have signaled that we were in for a long night of poor-to-horrendous attempts at live singing, but still, we just had no idea, you guys. Pitchiness abounded, but we did enjoy seeing some of our faves rock the red carpet beforehand. (Is Taylor Swift taking cues from Donatella Versace now?). Check below to see the evening’s performances from Rihanna, Black Eyed Peas, Miley Cyrus, Enrique Iglesias and the rest of the lineup. Was it just us, or did you miss Adam Lambert?
