Chris Brown Wins Big At The American Music Awards; Kanye Not TOO Pissed!

Youth was the word at last night’s American Music Awards, where 19 year-old Chris Brown took home three of the pointy prizes, including the top award: Artist Of The Year. The AMA’s also provided no less than 19 live performances (none from Chris) but most of them didn’t suck!

Christina Aguilera kicked off the show with a medley highlighting her greatest hits, which are not coincidently on her new “Greatest Hits” album. The fact that Christina has a “Greatest Hits” album makes Snarkista feel pretty dang old.



Miley Cyrus
tore up “Fly On The Wall” ,with some freaky space-bots, on her 16th Birthday.

Sarah McLaughlin was joined by Pink, who put some grit into a nice duet on “Angel”


The amazing Annie Lennox won the Award Of Merit, and gave a fab performance of “Why”:

Taylor Swift was introduced by David Cook (heart!) and sang “White Horse”:

Beyonce shook her booty on “Single Ladies”- she’s had a lot of practice with this one, but at least she left the bionic hand at home!


KANYE WEST WON AN AWARD! HE NEEDS TO BE HAPPY! (ALL-CAPS IN HONOR OF KANYE.) However, Kanye “wants to be Elvis”. DUDE. At least he didn’t punch anyone. Here are the rest of last night’s winners:

David Archuleta Gets A Teen Choice Nomination!

David Archuleta

No big surprise here, but squealmaker David Archuleta has received a 2008 Teen Choice Awards nomination for having the most fanatic fans! Archie could probably take this one home, as anyone knows who witnessed the asteroid shower of screams that rocked American Idol EVERY TIME he took the stage!

Other categories have been added to the “Teen Choice” voting ballot- including Choice MySpace and Archie’s category of Choice Fanatic Fans. There are a LOT of categories, in response to the online input on the award’s site. Fans can vote once a day on the Teen Choice website. You’re supposed to be a teen, but, whatever. If you love you some Jonas Brothers or are an Ironman fan… Snarkista won’t tell if you vote.

Stars scheduled to appear on the August 8th show (Fox, 8pm eastern) include The Jonas Brothers, Chris Brown, Scarlett Johannson, Kristen Bell, Chace Crawford, Hayden Panettiere and many more. The show will be hosted by…wait for it…Miley Cyrus. Miley’s gotta be able to do this hostessing shizz in her SLEEP by now!
