The American Music Awards 2012

The 40th Anniversary of  the American Music Awards kicked off at the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles last night with an opening  performance by Usher, who in my opinion should have just mimed throughout his entire set – As his vocals were totally off point when he did actually sing some parts.  Artists such as Justin Bieber Christina Aguilera, Nicki Minaj, Pink, Kesha, Carrie Underwood, The Wanted and the legend that is Stevie Wonder also performed on the night. Award winners such as the Queen B – Beyonce and Katy Perry did not bother to attend to collect their awards or possibly had more pressing engagements to attend.

The fashion on the night was certainly a mixture of great hits and even greater misses. It amazes me that these artists and celebrities have access to the best stylists and designer clothes in the world, yet some, such as Nicki Minaj can pull off the bride of Chucky look so effortlessly. Have a look at the gallery below and see for yourselves who executed the rocky horror show look the best! Might I add that the handsome Chris Brown who also performed alongside Swizz Beatz and Ludacris appears to be fronting his own ad campaign for the hungry – As he arrived on the red carpet looking very gaunt and somewhat skeletal like. Maybe this is a new trend I am presently unaware of, but it definitely is not a look worth imitating. Enjoy!
