American Music Awards 2013: The Best & Worst Moments From The Show

You know what? I’m just going to go ahead and say it: I like the American Music Awards. They’re really not that bad! Sure, they don’t matter in any meaningful way, but year after year, they’re the most enjoyable out of any awards show: Less self-serious than the Grammys, not as zanily self-referential as the VMAs, more…
