Trending @ 2: 2016 American Music Awards Recap

November 21, 2016

Despite last nights AMAs hitting an ALL TIME LOW only drawing in 8.2 million viewers and being down 31% as opposed to last year; It was a BIG night for music, political opinions and fashion! Last nights American Music Awards was AMAZING! Justin Bieber walked away with four awards while Drake surpassed Michael Jackson in having the most nominations, 13 NOMINATIONS for the night; where he took away three awards. Gigi Hadid is being called "racist" for her impression of Melania Trump. Now I think some people need to educate themselves on what racism and what it is to be racist. Better yet, here is the definition of a rasict: a person who believes that a particular race is superior to another.  I thought it was hilarious it was not RACIST! Also Hadid did a great job, I can see her on SNL for that. Did you catch it? Whether you did or didn't catch the show I have my favorite and least favorite moments, as well as some of their performances and the winners below! 

Personal highlights for me: 
-Green Day "No Trump, No KKK, No fascist USA"
-Selena Gomez's acceptance speech
-Sting (all of it.... every last bit of it... I LOVE STING)

The what in the hell moments for me: 
-Nicki, Future, Rick Ross, August Alsina LIP SINGING their lyrics...seriously?
-Lady Gaga, i love her but I was NOT feeling her performance
