We Will Be Liveblogging The American Music Awards This Weekend!

The American Music Awards are simultaneously the silliest and the most honest music-related gala. Nominees are based on things like Soundscan numbers and online streams instead of trifles like artistic intent or legend status, and the winners are dubbed "favorites," not "bests." Yet there's an air of seriousness about it that you'd never see at, say, MTV's Video Music Awards, one that will be ever more present this year as the Black Eyed Peas bring us their latest wedding-floor-filler "The Time (Dirty Bit)" live for the first time on TV and Train play That Train Song You Hear Everywhere one more time. Which is to say, come back Sunday at 8 pm eastern for a good old-fashioned liveblog of the show by me! And pray, pray that Kanye shows up.

Just like old Idolator times, I will get drunk and ramble on in the comments! YAY!

Brad Nelson (#2,115)

most likely I will be drunk and watching this with maura

if you can hear small echoes in the liveblog of someone thinking too hard about the career trajectory of bon jovi, like transmissions from a crude seashell

that is me.

Baud you are all of us dude. Bort: A Man Of The People. Wait.

Count on me to make the token Jobriath reference during every live performance.

is this a trick to get me to watch television? (yes, i have one)
also, is it standard procedure to get drunk while watching it? (if so, i've been doing it all wrong…traditionally i get drunk and don't watch tv)

Do you think Kanye would interrupt all the winners' speeches if he was paid enough/there was an Internet Movement? Cause I would watch the hell out of that.

Yes, but it would turn out like Snakes on a Plane.
