AMAs '13

Ciara in J. Mendel
She looks so beautiful. That dress is sexy, bad-ass.
The award show that allowed America to cast in their vote pretty much became the "Taylor Swift, Justin Timberlake, One Direction and Rihanna" Awards. Anywho, the AMAs was last night and hosted by Pitbull. He was corny. The end.

There were a lot of performances from Miley Cyrus and her cat to Lady Gaga + R.Kelly doing some kinda Scandal-ish Broadway drama (I do like their song, though. Do What U Want) to Justin Timberlake getting his folk band on to a Celia Cruz tribute done by the ageless Jennifer Lopez. But my favorite was definitely Imagine Dragons. Their performance was electric and entertaining and powerful. Another performance that got my attention was Christina Aguilera and A Great Big World, Say Something. I was stunned at how much Christina pulled back and did not over do it with voice dramatics. I mean, we all know Xtina can sang but sometimes when she performs it's feels like she wants to remind us that she can do these tricky vocal acrobatics. But not this time around. She sang so beautifully. Lovely song, too. Finally, Rihanna won some kind of icon award and I was all like, um, okay...? It's no secret that I'm not a RiRi fan but all I will say is that I think it's too early to deem her an 'icon' of anything.

Red carpet time!

My T-Swizzle is all grown up!
Kendal Jenner in Keepsake
She definitely turned heads in this look.
Meanwhile, she's the youngest person I follow on Instagram.
Judge away.

Kesha in Michael Costello
The best I've ever seen Kesha. We thank God.

Ariana Grande in something Mariah Carey would have worn in her heyday Dolce & Gabbana

Kelly Osbourne in something Adele would have highly considered wearing during her heydey Rami Al Ali

R. Kelly in something ASAP Rocky would definitely wear sometime soon.

Jennifer Hudson in Dior
I honestly have this strong urge to reach my hand through the screen and rip off the 'torn' cloth hanging from the skirt.

This is just sad and disjointed.
That can also be said about their performance.
