Girls and Guys Get Glam For the American Music Awards!

The American Music Awards took place last night in Los Angeles, celebrating the best in US music from the past 12 months! Taylor Swift was the big winner of the night, dominating the female categories and getting gongs for favourite artist in both pop and country categories as well as beating Michael Jackson to the huge award — Artist of the Year. Taylor's in London at the moment and missed the ceremony, but Michael's family Jermaine and Janet were at the ceremony and picked up the late singer's four awards.

Country act Gloriana were shocked to beat Lady GaGa to Breakthrough Artist award, while Twilight picked up yet another award for Favourite Soundtrack. Performers included Whitney Houston, Jay-Z, Black Eyed Peas, Shakira, Rihanna, Lady GaGa as well as a performance by Adam Lambert that's got everyone talking — see why under the cut!

I love Taylor Swift, shes so cute! Seen a few interviews with her this week and she just seems so normal and lovely! So congrats to Taylor, she totally deserves all her awards! Oooh do i like Rihannas dress? I think...i do...If it was white on the outside, it would be a really cool wedding dress! But her stage dress/leotard thing is awful!! Kate Hudson also looks gorgeous, and Ryan looks hot and to be honest I dont have much clue who the rest of them are! :-)
