Carey suffered a surprise setback in the resurrection of her career on Tuesday when she picked up just one prize at the American Music Awards
Notable musicians celebrated their winning at the 33rd annual prestigious American Music Awards held Tuesday Nov.22 at the Shrine Auditorium. Mariah Carey was one among many who got nominated at the event. Unfortunately, the pop diva only brought home one award, Favorite Soul/R&B Female Artist, from the total four nominations she got, including Favorite Female Pop/Rock which went to Gwen Stefani, Pop/Rock and Soul/R&B which went to Green Day's "American Idiot" and Destiny's Child "Destiny Fulfilled."
Apart, multiple honors went to country star Tim McGraw, who won Country Male Artist prize and Country Album for his "Live Like You Were Dying." Black Eyed Peas, Kelly Clarkson, 50 Cent, Eminem, and R&B singer R. Kelly also scored great, but none of them were attending the Awards.
