2013 has been quite the year for the music scene. Pop music was at its finest with hit after hit from performers like Rihanna, Bruno Mars, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, Taylor Swift, and of course, the one and only, Justin Timberlake.
On Sunday, November 24th, those artists and many more will be celebrated on the world’s stage at the 2013 American Music Awards, hosted by none other than Mr. World Wide, aka Pitbull. ¡Valle! It’s going to be one hot and spicy awards show, if that bald, latin pile of machismo and manliness has anything to say about it.
Over the weekend I filled out my online ballot for the awards (which you should do too, if you haven’t already . . .) and even though some of the categories only had 3 nominees, I had a helluva time picking my pics.
So yes, I’m a die-hard JT fan, but I picked Macklemore and Ryan Lewis for almost everything because they are up for the highest amount of awards (6) and I think they are going to sweep.
However, I did pick Justin Timberlake for Favorite Male Artist, and so help me God if Robin Thicke beats him in that category. That will really Thicke me off!
I am pulling for Rihanna to win for Favorite Female Artist, even though I never know how to spell her name, I think she sets a bad example for impressionable young girls for getting back with CB, and it is on my bucket list to get drunk with P!nk. Unfortunately Taylor Swift will probably take this one home because, well, you know, um, gosh, gee, she’s just swell, but I hope Riri wins.
Miley Cyrus is scheduled to perform, which could be another ghastly freak show, or a way to redeem herself. Odds are it will be another tongue-thrusting nightmare, but the Polyanna in me is pulling for an artistic, subdued version of Wrecking Ball, where she shows off her singing chops instead of her little lady bit chops.
And by the way, who in tarnation is Florida Georgia Line? I can only assume they are a country band because of their name and by the fact that I’ve never heard of them. Apparently they are the bees knees so I best familiarize myself with them right quick.
