Music Monday: AMAs

Last night were the American Music Awards and they were highly entertaining. I didn’t watch the red carpet because I wasn’t interested  I missed it but I was able to catch the main show. I was looking forward to all the performances, including those by Ariana Grande, Justin Timberlake, Lady Gaga, and Imagine Dragons.

Of course my favorite performance was by Miley Cyrus who had quite the performance. No, she didn’t twerk. Instead, she just performed on stage with a giant animated cat behind her and it was highly entertaining. At one point the cat even started crying and did Miley’s signature tongue out pose. Unfortunately they made everyone wait for Miley to perform at the end of the show so occasionally I got bored and did homework or other things but it ended up being a great show.

Here’s a clip of Miley’s performance:

Music Monday: JT

After a 7-year music break, Justin Timberlake is finally releasing his third studio album tomorrow and I’m pretty excited. I wasn’t always a fan of Justin but when “Sexyback” came out, I was hooked. His first single “Suit and Tie,” although it took time to grow on me, is great! It makes me feel classy when I listen to it and I like to sing and dance along to it in the car. I can’t dance as well as him but I’m getting there!

Justin has been all over SNL, Jimmy Fallon, and other shows to promote the album, which has gotten me really excited. He even performed a new song each day last week on Jimmy Fallon. And after listening to the full album on iTunes yesterday, I can’t wait to buy it! It’s a lot of R&B and Pop sounds, which I love. There are also rumors that he’s making a volume two to this album as well so I can’t wait!

Music Monday: The Grammys

Last night was the Grammys on CBS and, since none of my favorite artists were performing, I kept watching on and off while doing homework. The show was ok and had a couple of noteworthy highlights. For me, the best performances were from Justin Timberlake and Maroon 5 & Alicia Keys. My favorite presenters were Beyoncé (obviously) and Ellen Degeneres.

There were a couple of surprises in terms of winners for awards. I was surprised Frank Ocean did not win Album of the Year. I was also surprised to see Adele still snatching in some awards after she dominated last year. The awards show this year made me anticipate the show next year since there will be more artists I like/know in attendance so I can’t wait!

The performance of the night.
