This year's American Music Awards was swamped by huge, over-the-top performances from some of the industry's most prominent artists including Chris Brown, Christina Aguilera, and Carrie Underwood. Latino rapper Pitbull and singer Ke$ha also added crowd-pleasing sets on the stage of the awards night held at the Nokia Theatre in L.A. on Sunday, November 18.
Breezy showed no qualms for going shirtless on the live stage as his pals and co-emcees, Ludacris and Swizz Beatz, joined him in the rendition of "Everyday Birthday". The track was the trio's upbeat club single which has a film-inspired music video shot over a span of 3 days in Paris.
Pop diva Christina Aguilera, meanwhile, gave a satisfying medley of her songs "Lotus Intro", "Army of Me" and "Let There Be Love". The voluptuous 31-year-old singer had a complete army of on-stage dancers dressed in outrageous costumes, which somehow added a strange mix of visuals for Aguilera's performance.
The "Lotus" lady then joined rapper Pitbull for his performance of "Feel This Moment". Mr. Worldwide also made the audience spring to their feet with a hot solo for "Don't Stop the Party".
Country crooner, Carrie Underwood, looked absolutely stunning as giant blowers made her blonde locks wave through the air during her rendition of "Two Black Cadillacs". Meanwhile, glitter girl Ke$ha was introduced by veteran singer Cindy Lauper and performed her newest hit "Die Young".
