AHM! AMA Live Blog

18 11 2007

Stay tuned for the AHM! live blog on the AMAs. Obviously, I’m on the west coast so I’m seeing it later than you folks on the east coast, but y’all can deal. I’ll be back periodically as the show airs.

8:13 pm - You know, I love Fergie, but this broad sounded out of breath her whole performance. And when she got to “Big Girls Don’t Cry”? It sounded like she was hiccupping out everywhere syllable. It’s been a long year for homegirl so I will chalk this up to exhaustion.

Will.I.Am? Who’s he trying to convince that he’s a heartbreaker? From what I can hear all he is is an eardrum breaker and/or sleeping pill. He better ride Fergie Ferg’s pissy coat-tails as far as they will take him because this solo career is going nowhere fast.

I felt so bad for Nicole Shakkalakka when she came out singing that weak ass single of hers, waving her hands side to side like it was a middle school dance. I fell out at Beyoncé in the audience waving her hands and trying to keep herself from laughing.

OMG, did she just try to hit that high note and then choke on her own phlegm? That was NOT pretty. And neither is that candy bump hairstyle she’s got going. If this is a sign of what’s to come, I’m scared.

Watch out for spoilers after the jump and in the comments!

8:17 pm - OK, the “Crank That” dance has officially jumped the shark. That’s all I have to say about that.

8:22 pm - Beyoncé’s making a “special appearance”? Can we really call appearances special when we can’t even turn on the TV without seeing the heifer hawking DirecTV or selling her bootsy ass phone?

8:28 pm - Avril Lavigne is still around? Even she looks bored by this bullshit she’s been peddling for the past five years. Excuse me, I changed the channel to see the Lakers score.

8:30 pm - I just turned back and this song sounds like that song “Kiss Me” from She’s All That. A mess.

8:46 pm - Adam Levine looks like a younger Vlade Divac. His five o’clock shadow is poppin’, is poppin’! He sounds a little iffy sometimes performing live, but he nailed it here.

Did Ashanti just come from Cinderella’s ball? That dandelion number is longer than her string of flop singles.

The fact that Akon and T-Pain were nominated in the same category (Akon wins, then gives it to T-Pain) — for an R&B award, nonetheless — shows us the sad state of music. Dookie Dreads was so thirsty for that award. In five years he’ll be selling it on eBay for some scratch.

8:52 pm - These Jonas kids are dorky as hell! That’s so embarassing how the one in the white tripped. What did he even fall over? His sense of self-worth? That was the only thing I could see on the floor. Countdown to these kids doing a line of coke off a stripper’s ass begins… NOW!

8:54 pm - Justin Timberlake doesn’t even care he won this award (Best Male Pop Artist, or some damn thing). They might as well have given him a bag of crap on fire.

9:02 pm - Monique Coleman looked like she knew this was the only award she was going to be winning in her life (Best Movie Soundtrack - High School Musical 2), and it wasn’t even just her alone. She soaked up as much out of this 15 seconds as she could, I ain’t mad.

Rihanna needs to put this orchestra under her umbrella and tell them go away because this is not the business. Ms. Ne-Ya came on stage like *smacks lips* “I own this stage, heifer” while Rihanna pretended he was Michael Anthony Hall. This is about as believable as Michael Jackson and Iman in the “Remember the Time” video.

9:17 pm - OK, this entry might not be finished because I just HIT THE FLOOR when I saw these country folks Sugarland come out singin’ ’bout some “You got me twisted”. “Irreplaceable” with an accordion. Now I’ve heard it all. *DIES*

Beyaki looks like she just did some uppers befor she came on stage. If she puts out a country album I will officially, 100% quit this bitch. The first single will be “My Achey Breaky Weave”.

9:19 pm - I’m gonna need Solange to give Little Miss Muffet her dress back.

9:29 pm - Josh Groban really is the epitome of bland ass, sterile ass, “easy listening” lameness. I’m mad at him on that stage calling Celine Dion his friend like that’s something to be proud of. Celine, meanwhile, sounds like she stole one of Carrie Underwood’s song books. It’s obvious she’s hit that “trying to be young” stretch of her career and she just needs to hang it up while she’s behind.

9:34 pm - You know what, Lenny Kravitz (performing “I’ll Be Waiting”) still has it. Seeing he and Celine perform back-to-back was just the perfect contrast to show how well he’s aged musically as opposed to her and a lot of others who have been in the game half as long as he has.

9:39 pm - Ummm, FutureSex/LoveSounds is R&B enough to win the Soul/R&B Album award? Again, Dusted Justin looks like he recorded that “fake sattelite” message in between finishing an issue of Maxim and taking a dump. Can they stop wasting the awards on him? At least Beyoncé would have came up and thanked Baby Daniel for carrying her Popeye’s.

9:46 pm - Chris Brown looks like the hip-hop, glow-in-the-dark Michelin Man. And can they hang up these R&B royalty titles? Didn’t they name Ashanti the Princess of something? And we saw how that ended up. Other than that, I can’t hate too much because he turned it out with the dancing, as usual. I just don’t know that dancing is enough to sustain a long-run career.

I wanted T-Pain to trip down those stairs so badly.

10:02 pm - Alicia is finally starting to sound better live singing this song. It took her a minute to get it down but I think she’s got the hang of it. Is she wearing fake tan? I think some of it got in her eyes because she is squinting like a mug up in there. I was mad at Junior Reid coming out there looking like Sway Calloway’s cousin.

OK, as much as I like to hear “Murder She Wrote” performed in 2007 like it came out yesterday (WTF?), what inspired Alicia to pull Chaka Demus & Pliers out of obscurity for this? I’m surprised she didn’t bring Born Jamericans out there. LMAO! I’m not mad at her winding her waist though, yowwww.

10:15 pm - How many country awards are there?! Sweet Minty.

10:17 pm - Rihanna, Beyoncé and some Latin dude looked really excited to see Flusher, LOL.

Well, I guess that’s why Bee was excited. *sigh* Another opportunity for us to pretend like Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams never existed. 183 magazine covers? Really, that’s it? I’m not even gonna go any further with this because you guys handled it in the comments.

OK, was she tearing up a little?! You mean to tell me she’s not a robot? I’m mad at Mat leading her to the stage. Usher needs some tutoring for reading!

You guys are gonna get me for this, but her lil’ speech was actually kind of cute. *ducks*

10:31 pm - Mary came out rocking her Anna Mae/T-Boz hybrid wig and turned it out. Hey, actually, I think that was the same wig she was wearing in the “I’m Going Down” video. *dead* I must say, this song has grown on me two-fold. I still think it sounds cheap, but in a catchy way. Rihanna was in the audience looking glad as hell that she stole “Umbrella” from Mary and not “Just Fine”. LOL. Was that Will.I.Am in the audience sitting next to Fergie having a seizure?

10:34 pm - What in the hell are Layzie Bone and his goons wearing (accepting Best Hip-Hop group on behalf of Bone Thugs)? A mess at them cutting him off after 15 seconds for the Old Navy backstage special. LMFAO! They better hope Layzie doesn’t call up Bizzy Bone to throw a hex on them. Don’t play with that.

10:40 pm - Queen Latifah sounded and looked great, and I liked the song, don’t get me wrong, but this is a little too close to the wrong side of “doctor’s office music” if you ask me.

10:44 pm - Rihanna wins Best Female R&B Album. OK, this awards show has officially played itself.

10:52 pm - I’m calling it a night. This is officially the millionth time I’ve heard that Daughtry song and I just can’t take it anymore. Overall grade for this show: C-.

did anybody catch a bey bey singing w/ the country folk? w/ that extra extra blonde hair?
tee hee hee…actually, though, uh **looking around cautiously** i kinda liked it…

Don’t spoil it for the people on the West Coast!

Anywho…I love the live blog. Be back later to read and coment even though I’ve seen the show already.

Ms. Niqua (19:59:02) :

I started watching this at 9:30. I missed all the good performances. I caught Mary doin’ Just Fine, but I am sad to say that “Just Fine” is not my jam

meka (19:59:54) :

i need to get to bed but i had to get this off my chest.

alicia keys performance, the only performance i cared about…ok, the crowd did not seem to be feelin’ it but i love reggae…but when she came out with the “choreography” and remixed no one with a bunch of reggae artists whose last hits were in the 90s, early 2000s…umm, sorry but no. i like the artists, and i LOVE her, but it felt awkward and…wrong. just wrong. SMH(literally). i changed the channel before it ended. maybe it was just me. maybe it got better after murder she wrote?

mjb-looked fabulous and though i’m not a fan of the song, she ROCKED that ish!

chris brown better learn how do dance and do some damn singing at the same time. he will NOT be the next Usher or MJ if only relies on dancing and no vocals. that’s the same mess ciara pulls. i like their music but come on…

beyonce singing irreplaceable with a country band? SMH. vocally she rocked it though. i guess she needed to prove that there’s NOTHING she can’t do…no genre limitations at all. and justin timberlake beats her for best R&B album? WTF? congrats to her winning the international artist award-but was i the only one who thought the intro for her was a bit much? i was waiting for the Messiah to return after all of that (millions of albums, grammys, AMAs…it’s Beyaweh QUEEN OF THE WORLD!!) And she showed genuine emotion for once. made me start to like her again (but i’d have to ignore her stupid wannabe latina comments). but she lost in categories where the people voted…to RIHANNA and JT. WTF? is she facing a backlash? i’m not a stan of hers AT ALL but that just didn’t seem right

queen latifah’s performance. why was she there again?

solange? why the hell was she presenting? who is she other than beyonce’s sister? that must have been a condition for beyonce to perform.

i’m done. just my humble opinion.

God bless everyone and goodnight. (-;

~MJ (20:05:46) :

It was on? Sorry, I was watching “The Simpsons” and had a better time. Awards shows are starting to suck now.

And if Beyola Chiquita Wienstein showed actual emotion, I like her a millimeter more.

18 11 2007
Ja (20:12:09) :

According to my classmate, that Sugarland song (Beyonce cover) is starting to ‘blow up’ in the country world. Um, i guess.

Next, it’ll be, “Shorty is a 10.”

18 11 2007
kelis (20:13:01) :

OK I’m on the west coast also and it just came on. I must say… Nicole “Schwinnbicycle”…. LAWD…. she is trying so hard, but she just sounded a mess.

i’m sad that i missed mjb and queen latifah…i caught a little bit of alicia but she didn’t inspire me to stay on that channel for some reason…i’m still just angry that desparate housewives didn’t come on this night…

18 11 2007
Ja (20:32:16) :

Spoiler Alert:

They were pulling celebrities out of the crowd to get on stage to do the Soulja Boy. Some were like, hell nawl. I thought it was a big joke.

I didn’t care for the awards. I’m just mad at JT winning best R&B male. R&B has too many males for him to be the representative. I guess, hell more black people bought his album than the last 3 Janet Jackson albums. Usher needs to come back and shut his punk ass up.

18 11 2007
Ms. Niqua (20:35:46) :

I saw Mat sitting next to Beyonce throughout the show. WHERE THE HELL WAS TINA?

She was out getting a facelift, was’nt she? I had hoped she would learn about the plastic from the Donda West fiasco (R.I.P. Donda)

I’m confused that Usher was the Donda West tribute. At least get someone relevant to do it. I have not been checkin’ for Ur-Shurr in 4 years, therefore I am not checkin’ for him at all.

Solange was presenting…. I guess Cassie was moonlighting tonight. Miss Kelly had to go promote someone’s new line of toilet paper. Amerie was shoplifting lace panties from Wal Mart. Tamar Braxton was at Popeyes having herself a damn good time.

Solange is straight D-List. We might as well have had Michelle Williams present this.

18 11 2007
Ms. Niqua (20:39:05) :

^^^ NOTE TO READERS: Please remove Michelle Williams’ name from the last sentence and replace it with Khia

nga (20:47:27) :

Beyonce special appearance? what’s so special about it? They need to quit with always tryin to remind everybody that Beyonce is sumthin’ special because that is why ppl are gettin tired of her. Come on now. I think Denzel said it best - don’t speak for your game let your game speak for itself.

Beyonce won the (clears throat) “International Artist Award of Excellence.”

Past and only winners include Michael Jackson, Rod Stewart, Led Zeppelin, the Bee Gees and Aerosmith.

18 11 2007
nga (21:00:48) :

^^@Ja ok lmao……….you have got to be kidding me……i give up!! Beyonce is talented but by herself she has only put 2 albums. she is going to top out before she hits 30.

meka (21:07:47) :

^^
ok, i was supposed to go to bed but these comments are funny as hell. when you put it in THAT context, it’s crazy that she only has 2 albums and is considered to be in the same class as MJ and Aerosmith…wow. If they are counting her DC records, shouldn’t Michelle and Kelly be standing up there too? Granted they didn’t help out on her solo records but damn. Yes, B was the lead singer/songwriter for DC, but the Billboard Wards just confirms that the industry/public saw DC as “Beyonce and them.” She is the first black woman to get it though so congrats to her.

18 11 2007
kelis (21:11:27) :

That Rihanna/Ne-Yo performance was bad BAD BAD… i mean.. a hot mess in every sense. I can’t even… I understand Rihanna thinks she’s the ish now with the whole rebellious “raunchy” thing, but i’m not convinced!!! And to top that off, she sounded horrible, and Ne-Yo wasn’t much help.

18 11 2007

i just wonder is it because im older now or is music just getting boring? it seems like the music i find the most interesting you can’t find on mtv or bet. i am just tired of celebrating stereotyped mediocrity and subpar artist who don’t even care enought to master the craft of their profession.

I am convinced that no one in the Knowles family cares about Solange. Do they even know she’s there? Why did B let her out the house with a gold dress and some hot pink shoes and red lipstick..? (or whatever color it is)

Rihanna needs to put this orchestra under her umbrella and tell them go away because this is not the business. Ms. Ne-Ya came on stage like *smacks lips* “I own this stage, heifer” while Rihanna pretended he was Michael Anthony Hall. This is about as believable as Michael Jackson and Iman in the “Remember the Time” video.

I’m out. But before I go, I’ll like to sing a song for you.

(Turns up techno, sits down in office chair butt ass naked…)

“As we obey and trust Yahweh, we give praise to the name of GODDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDD
Through faith and work, let us never stop praising Yahweh, our masterrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr.”"

Marc (23:00:07) :

It’s on YouTube already.

Here’s Alicia’s to start with. I started watching it and then my browser crashed. From what I heard she sounded decent though. They should have had her drink a gallon of water and do another take on this song before they mastered it; I can’t STAND her vocals on the official track.

Marc (23:04:21) :

Well, it was ok until she tried to go “irie” with it. Ewww…I’m half bajan and I wouldn’t even try that. It sounds schizophrenic. I mean how many times you gonna blow the horn during this performance?! Come down selecta please!!!

Born Jamericans

Holy cow; I ain’t heard that in a minute. Throw back of the day anyone?

I have a question. Does Bey’s father have that much “power” in Hollyweird? I mean, he is who he is because of Bey. Just curious. As for Bey winning the award, well…..they did mention the 168 or 186 magazine covers. Maybe that accounts for something. ;)
The show was somewhat of a bore. Rhianna’s vocals are improving…a little. I still think she should just model and spare our ears. Solange’s dress was from the House of Damnwrong. Is it just me or did Urshay seem terrified to be outside or something. He looked frightened. Maneka has him on lock, I guess.

Beyonce and sugarland: No. Looking forward to seeing her, but the country singer’s voice made my ears bleed. Had to turn that off.

Chris Brown and T-pain in the backside: Yes. Especially that cool bit at the end where he was dancing upside down but he didn’t really do much up there so sort of disappointing but I do like the song now.

Rihanna and Ne-yo (wearing his hat, thank God!): No. As soon as I saw her in an evening gown, I knew the Umbrella song would be ruined and for me it was. It needs to be loud and energetic not soft and elegant. The bit with Be-yo was sort of bland. They seemed like friends instead of pining lover.

MJB: Yes. I love the song but the performance was ‘just fine’ sadly. I think that she should’ve had dancers or something else besides her. She did look like she was having a great time which I loved.

Alicia Keys: Yes. I enjoyed it, except for homophobic Beanie Man being there. The transition into reggae could’ve been better but I still enjoyed it.

William: Just there really.

Nicole: No. Disappointed that she did boring Baby Love. She strained like crazy and the way she dragged William up and down the stage, trying to force some chemistry was insane. She messed up. Plus her outfit sucked. I pity her.

Fergie: Yes. Nice and lively.

PS. This is my new fav blog! Not sucking up, just saying.

MJB got her MAN!!! My fav performance of the nite!
However, I must ask-are super-hero-unitards “in” now? Between her and Alicia rockin’ them joints, I just wanna know so I can start my bulimarexic-hoodia-tea fast now.
I’m just asking.
BTW, the country Irreplacable was kinda cute. If you listen to the words it really is country-and that’s not a stretch for ABeyBey.

geminigirl (08:08:13) :

I recorded the show, but the only performances I have played back so far are Alicia and CB. CB needs to learn to lip-sync. That was a hot mess. The dancing was good … but he should have had those two little boys with him.

I’m an Alicia stan, so besides that big ass 70’s braid going across her forehead and the spray on tan she gets nothing but love from me.

I saw that too. I thought that maybe Kanye’s situation, however tragic it is, was a wakeup call to sons like Kanye, sons like Usher who’s mother has been there with them through thick and then (i.e. managing their careers). I saw Usher’s mind going, “I better fix this with my momma because I don’t want anything to happen to either of us and both of us have this arguining between us.”

That’s what I got and maybe I’m reaching….STAY TUNED, Usher and Maneka will be divorcing soon because he will pick his mom over her, especially now.

*really reaching here*

The IPS (08:28:59) :

OK Alicia went and recycled Mary’s dookie braid from her last album cycled and stayed in “Mystic Tan” a little too long reading her Dr. Seuss books. I was so mad at her. She had on way too much makeup.

But when she was slow-winding. LAWDHAMMUSSY.

19 11 2007
MissOMyGoodnezz (08:29:07) :

I liked the AKeys performance. Mainly because I love reggae and “No One” should have just been a reggae song. Hell, Alicia should have been a reggae artist cuz all that patois she be speaking sounds authentic to me lol

19 11 2007
Deezie (09:37:09) :

LMAO @ That Akward ass dance that Alicia tried to pull, Alcia please sit your ass down at the Piano and tap those keys and leave the dancing to Ciara

“Ms. Ne-Ya came on stage like *smacks lips* “I own this stage, heifer” while Rihanna pretended he was Michael Anthony Hall.”

**FLATLINED**

“Solange’s dress was from the House of Damnwrong.”

AND

I am convinced that no one in the Knowles family cares about Solange. Do they even know she’s there? Why did B let her out the house with a gold dress and some hot pink shoes and red lipstick..? (or whatever color it is)

**DEAD**

“That’s so embarassing how the one in the white tripped. What did he even fall over? His sense of self-worth? That was the only thing I could see on the floor. Countdown to these kids doing a line of coke off a stripper’s ass begins… NOW!”

AND

“beyonce singing irreplaceable with a country band? SMH. vocally she rocked it though. i guess she needed to prove that there’s NOTHING she can’t do…no genre limitations at all. and justin timberlake beats her for best R&B album? WTF? congrats to her winning the international artist award–but was i the only one who thought the intro for her was a bit much? i was waiting for the Messiah to return after all of that (millions of albums, grammys, AMAs…it’s Beyaweh QUEEN OF THE WORLD!!)”

**REVIVED** ‘CAUSE THESE WERE TOO FUNNY NOT TO LAUGH AT!!!!

I didn’t even see the show. This commentary was better!

yanumba1girld (09:51:59) :

First off…

Souljah boy should have been retired weeks ago.

i liked the country performance of irreplaceable, because…the original version always sounded like a country song to me!!! i go to a white school so i know a little bit about country music. lol so the ‘to the left to the left, everything you own in the box to the left’ sounds like some straight country shit!!! and that little guitar does nothing but help.

alicia keys…man oh man. i kno rihanna was feelin that ish! but i didnt understand why she brought the whollleee reggae crew out. i was feelin it, but i wasnt feeling it with HER performance. feel me? and i wasnt feelin her little dance segment either. lol

oh and congrats to Beyonce for winning the internation watever it was called award. did yall peep rhinna tearing up when she got it? haha

and how did rhinna beat bey for that best female r&b award!!!?? u gotta be kidding me.

19 11 2007
jummpy (10:02:00) :

I have to ask this question is it me or what do beywolf and usher had the same Home school teacher? If so no wonder they understand each other

Alica keys did do the damm thing ,Mary just Being Mary ,OK sugland could have did that song by themselves because the lead singer was actually doing a good job Queen Latifah performance was ehh…

lovin the d (11:47:30) :

My girl Mary, did her thang!!! I’m lovin “Just Fine”. She was kind of stiff on the moves, but she still rocked it.

19 11 2007
Ms. Niqua (13:25:36) :

Solange was presenting… I guess Cassie was moonlighting tonight. Miss Kelly had to go promote someone’s new line of toilet paper. Amerie was shoplifting lace panties from Wal Mart. Tamar Braxton was at Popeye’s having herself a damn good time.

****Honored to receive the quote of the moment****

This beats Beyonce’s International artist award! Suck it B

19 11 2007
MissOMyGoodnezz (13:31:13) :

Question…I didn’t watch the AMA’s but WHY OH WHY is Usher even commenting on Kanye and his mom when this fool fire’s his mom for another dude?

Ursh, you need more people.

19 11 2007
kelis (13:34:25) :

^^I love Mary, but on “Just fine”-I’m sorry but she sounded flat almost the whole performance, and on the recording also.

I thought Queen Latifah sounded excellent. Didn’t know she could sing like that.

Rihanna was even shocked she won that award. But the public voted this yr so.. I guess they are about ready to overthrow Queen Beyaweh

Simply_B (15:05:53) :

I was crying when Sugarland was singing. I ran into my mother’s room and changed the channel so she could see it. She was like “Mmm Mmm.” Im about to cry right now just thinking about it.

19 11 2007
CinEffinRella (19:23:35) :

okay i knew i wasn’t watchin this sh!t when i saw the commercial and they were like “and a special appearance by . . . Beyonce!”

Now remember how they used to do that for michael jackson back in the 80s. and you knew everybody in your class was going to be up watching it. then the whole school would be buzzing the next day all the way up to lunch.

i’m sorry, i just can’t go there with beyulelog. she hasn’t earned “and a special appearance by . . . “

Juelz (21:12:25) :

Seems like the powers that be have already taken down A. Key’s performance on YouTube, but I got the Google-fu for those who missed it ;-). I applaud her for trying something different….but this isn’t the different I would have liked to see with this song. So far she’s done remixes with Kanye, Cassidy and now…reggae nation. Who’s going to be next on the remix tip?

Jazz (21:40:27) :

This may appear to be mean spirted but,….Solange really resembles the actor from the movie, “Drumline” who insisted his band plays “Flight of the Bumble Bee”. If he wore a weave, I believe he would be a dead ringer for her. No hate…just a twisted observation. ;)

ashllllllllllllllllllllllllleeee (08:46:10) :

angel (15:09:17) :

I just want to say, Chris Brown does sing live in most of his performances.

Ja,
you shaking right? I was with you when you spoke about Justin and R&B, but black people did not buy his album more than Janet’s last three CDs. All For You alone is a movement by itself, add that with Damita Jo and 20 YO despite the lackluster sales of the latter, add up to more than Justin’s bullshit.

Yes I’m a Stanet…
