Taylor Swift, Rihanna, Katy Perry, Backstreet Boys, New Kids at 2010 American Music Awards

Taylor, Rihanna and NKOTBSB Make a Memorable AMAs!

The American Music Awards were jam-packed with flashy performances after a daring red carpet for the women and leather-loving guys. Rihanna opened the night sporting a bikini ensemble for her three-song medley. Her good friend Katy Perry had her own moment in the spotlight wearing a skintight red bodysuit after ripping off her skirt, while pregnant Pink put on a lively show, though the mum-to-be kept the acrobatics to a minimum. Taylor Swift changed from her sparkly mini into an all-black skinny pants and blazer ensemble for her dramatic "Back to December/Apologize" mashup. Taylor was one of the evening's big winners, so check out the whole list here. Christina Aguilera also performed the number "Express" from her upcoming movie Burlesque. Justin Bieber shared his triumphant times with mentor Usher, and the two also both took the stage to showcase their hits. Miley Cyrus was on her own after apparently backing out of a duet with Bret Michaels. Instead she wowed in a Marchesa minidress featuring a giant bow before her 18th birthday, which is today! Jessica Alba kicked off her Little Fockers promotional kick as a presenter with a very slick-backed do. The event ended with an exciting trip down memory lane when NKOTB and Backstreet Boys took on their greatest hits. Check out the rest of our AMAs coverage here!

all these rediculous outfits are getting out of hand. instead of being FASHIONABLE, its more about who can dress the most outragious and rediculous to get the most media attention and it discusts me...and i agree with zeze, why in the world is it optional to wear pants now days!?
