The 2010 American Music Awards just wrapped on ABC, and with the incredible amount of performances that aired during the live three hour broadcast, it’s hard to believe any awards were actually handed out to the lucky winners. And while there was no Adam Lambert-like controversy this go ’round, the show did feature strong performances by Rihanna, Enrique Iglesias with Pitbull, and Kid Rock to name a few.
There were, of course, acts who either were musically off (Katy Perry) or just had no business of being on stage to begin with (Justin Bieber, Miley Cyrus).
