Did you guys watch the AMAs last night? I was actually totally impressed. I’ve pulled some in case you missed it moments for you guys. I wasn’t able to cover all, just the ones that stood out to me (hopefully the videos don’t get taken down)…
Let’s get started:
Jay-Z, and Alicia Keys‘ Empire State of Mind made me want to hop back on the plane I just got off of and move to New York. I know this is going to sound corny, but I’ve never felt so inspired from watching a performance on TV. Maybe it’s because I just got back from New York this past Saturday, and I miss it…but whatevs…it was amazing:
Lady Gaga‘s performance was very Gagaesque–broken glass, lights, and of course very dark…I know that Gaga is not for everyone, but I loved her performance. It was eye-opening to say the least. Here’s a teaser clip:
And, Whitney Houston–she was amazing last night, and was back in a BIG way. I’m still really not a fan, but I can appreciate a comeback…
Adam Lambert: Ehhhh. I was expecting more. He’s been giving apologies for his racy performance last night, but that’s not what bothered me. It’s the song he chose for his first single, For Your Entertainment–weird choice, right? It’s a little too Broadway. I know I was his biggest supporter during Idol, so maybe my expectations are too high–but for now, he has to prove himself a little more.
Here’s his performance:
Let’s get to the trainwreck of the evening:
J.Lo. OMG, what the hell was she wearing? What the hell was she doing? And, why? I hope she gives Christian Louboutin an apology for embarrassing his brand with her horrendous song at the AMAs. It was just plain bad all around.
Here’s her performance (this is the only replacement video I could find that won’t be removed):
Although comedy is her profession, Nadine has accomplished a lot in her young age. She is a national champion black belt, a world-class soccer player, and an avid snowboarder. She started playing soccer at the age of 4, and continued playing through college where she majored in Biology, but quickly realized her destiny was to tell jokes, not to wear a lab coat. So she decided to be funny while finishing her Bachelors Degree in biology and continued on to get her M.B.A. Nadine’s comedy style is much like her athleticism, fearless. She’s made her way up the comedy ladder very quickly, and has become a club favorite at many of the country’s top comedy clubs, including the Improv chain. Performing in the Boston Comedy Festival and being noted as the “one of the youngest and brightest up and comers” and traveling to the Middle East to entertain the troops are just a few of her notable accomplishments. These days Nadine splits time between the stage, a radio studio, her computer blogging, and a television studio. Nadine’s TV, Radio, Writing credits include: national commercials, talking head roles on E! Entertainment, Showtime’s Hot Tamales Live, The Skinny: Fat Free News, The Sunny Side of The Truth: Real World Hollywood, TVgasm, Zazreport, Daddy’s Girls, Jerseylicious, celebrity interviews on Mania TV, a weekly half-hour television show that syndicates to colleges across the country for National Lampoon and a nightly radio show on XM Satellite Radio.
