LIVE WONGIE: 2011 american music awards - the performances (kelly clarkson, katy perry, david guetta & nicki minaj, the band perry, j-lo, maroon 5 & christina aguilera & gym class hereos, justin bieber)

also known as the biggest train wreck music 'awards' show on TV (oh wait there's always the world music awards from monaco), AMA's have no reason other than to showcase an endless slew of performances after another (most of them mediocre or just weird). for your viewing pleasure here are some highlights (thank you mr yardie for the clips!)

kelly clarkson - mr know it all
[love the fact that kelly decided to mix it up a bit with this new orleans jazz arrangement. sadly it's the least musical appreciative audience on the planet, wasted...]

katy perry - the one that got away
[just love this acoustic version that she performs live. LOVE!]

david guetta feat nicki minaj - turn me on & superbass
[i swear they should make a muppet character for david guetta! he's so animated it's kind of funny. plus what is he mixing? it's a pre-recorded track! nicki shows that she has the ability to sing (pretty good mind you) and dance and well... be awesome]

the band perry - if i die young
[i love how pop-ifying a country act means turning down the harmonies and throwing in an electric guitar! as always they're a class act!]

jennifer lopez - medley (feat pitbull)
[aka the one where she shamelessly hawks the fiat on stage!]

maroon 5 feat christina aguilera & gym class heroes - moves like jagger / stereo hearts
[ok i just read that adam was very sick yesterday, so the fact that he did the performance that he did is very commendable.]

justin bieber - under the mistletoe
[oh boy... the voice is turning...]
