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?).
