What did you think of the 2013 AMA winners?

  • K@

    Blah… Thanks for taking away my Once Upon a Time, AMAs!

  • Megan

    Can someone please explain to me how Taylor Swift is still country? I’m not a fan of her, but from what I’ve heard from Red, that’s definitely not country.

    • Lucy Hopko

      The best part is that she’s nominated (and won) best country album and also nominated for best female artist pop/rock.. Uhhhh

      • Antara Chowdhury

        She won best female pop/rock artist as well. :) That’s why in one of her acceptance speeches, she mentioned that because so many different radio stations have played her songs, she doesn’t have to worry about genre when she writes songs. Her album has Begin Again which is country, super pop songs like WANEGBT, 22, and IKYWT (which even has a bit of dubstep thrown in, and some folk-y songs like The Last Time. I don’t see why artists have to be categorized into one genre if they write and perform songs that fit more than one.

      Her music is still played on country stations. And “Begin Again” was released specifically as a single for country stations.

    • http://daydreamsandwhispers.tumblr.com/ Hermione Granger

      Red had like 3 or 4 songs that were definitely “country”, 3 or 4 songs that were super “pop”, and most of them were in-between. Folk-y, rock-y, acoustic-y…and a mix of all of those. The “pop” singles have become more well-known but I’d say it’s a pretty even mix of a lot of genres.

    • w

      I think a lot of her fans were annoyed with RED tbh because of its pop-y-ness. Shes been moving toward pop for a while though. Every album shes released over the last few years has gotten less and less country-sounding.

  • Tina

    AMA without JUSTIN BIEBER doesn’t sound right!!!! Maybe next year.. I’m not gonna watch it this time

    • Zero

      Just saying American Music Awards…. He’s Canadian…

      • http://lauraej.tumblr.com/ Laura Jurgensmeyer

        One Direction, Rihanna, Avicii, Calvin Harris, Zedd, Daft Punk, Mumford & Sons… all not American.

  • lana

    one direction win :)

  • Kathryn Kramer

    2013 American music awards who is the winner

  • Ann

    Officially proves that America’s music taste sucks and this is coming from an American

  • hooligan

    I an NOT a hater but really how does Taylor Swift win over Bruno Mars? How?

    • Antara Chowdhury

      More of her fans voted for her than Bruno Mars fans voted for him.

      • Monica Armanyous

        I seriously don’t get how Bruno didn’t win he totally deserves it. Taylor is just a piece of shit she doesn’t deserve all the awards she won

        • taylorswiftisbetterthanyou

          7 grammys shut the hell up she’s not a ‘piece of shit’ grow up

          • Monica Armanyous

            She’s a junk load of shit Bruno deserved tht award cuz he’s Waay beter thn her nd speaking of growing up I think its u who needs to grow the hell up

          • Ahmed Tarek

            Taylor Swift actually knows how to write well and how to make a cohesive album, not a scattered mess.

  • HK1

    I’m really glad I didn’t watch this. OUAT is so much better than this crap for the record.

  • Elliot Burford

    So glad Robin Thicke didn’t win anything :D:D

  • Kevin

    Kendrick Lamar should of won rap album and Miley Cyrus gave the best performance, vocally. Love that Katy Perry. I don’t understand how someone can have a #1 song on the Hot for #1 for 12 weeks (Robin Thicke) and not win at least one award. Justin Timberlake can sing but his personality is too corny for me.


    I’m a very good fan of ariana and Victoria justice….

  • Monica Armanyous

    I wish Bruno won sumthin but watever I still love him and eill always stand by his side

  • Max Rakušček

    Is it weird that I never heard the “Single of the year”?

  • Kid

    Seriously who voted for Taylor Swift??? The BEST country Singer??? Holding a guitar doesn’t make you that!! Apperantly it’s working just fine for her!

    • Ahmed Tarek

      Holding a guitar??? She can play guitar. Is there something wrong with you?

  • Princess Styless


  • Princess Styless


  • Sam Moreno

    can we address the real issue here….HOW THE FUCK DID MACKELMORE BEAT JAY Z AND KENDRICK LAMAR FOR BEST RAP ALBUM OF THE YEAR!!!!!!!! that result is exactly why i NEVER take these kind of music awards seriously. rarely do the best talent win for each category. (in exception to Justin wining best soul and r&b album which was well deserved.)

  • cfr2

    why did gaga attend if she was not even nominated for anything?? came in a horse also! ATTENTION seeker

  • ama 2k13

    I like Miley’s performances

    • true

      me too dude
