The American Music Awards took place last night in Los Angeles.

Star Studded is an understatement. 

 The show hosted by Jimmy Kimmel featured a record 19 performances.  Including Alicia Keyes’ performance of “Superwoman”, a special collaboration by Pink and Sarah McLachlan of the hit song “Angel.” Other highlights included an opening 7-minute medley of Christina Aguilera’s greatest hits as well as show-stopping performances by Beyonce, Coldplay, Jonas Brothers, Kanye West, Mariah Carey, Rihanna, Miley Cyrus, Ne-Yo, New Kids on the Block, Natasha Bedingfield, Leona Lewis, Pussycat Dolls, Taylor Swift, a solo performance by Pink and The Fray.

The biggest winner of the night was Chris Brown who won three awards including Favorite Artist of the Year.  It was no surprise that Rihanna, Chris’ girlfriend, also won for Favorite Artist of the Year.
Surprise guest Justin Timberlake was on hand to present the 2008 American Music Awards special “Award of Merit” to Annie Lennox honoring her work with the groundbreaking Eurythmics and her illustrious solo career.  Additionally, Mariah Carey was recognized for becoming the solo artist with the most number one hits of all time.
