while, showbiz awards ceremonies are two-a-penny these days. They all
strive to be different and few succeed. The season (if there still
is a season) continues tonight with the American Music Awards, from
the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles Like last year, it will have no
host, preferring to fills to gaps with more live performances (14 in
all) - which is a good thing. Rihanna will open the show doing a song
that the producers say nobody has ever heard her sing live. New Kids
on the Block with wrap it up - performing with the Backstreet Boys.
Not sure I'll wait three hours for that. In the running for gongs are
Eminem, Justin Bieber and Katy Perry....
