  • SCat

    @mx: <– LOL this

  • the_boyfriend

    lol @ all those nom’s for MJ, so undeserved imo, will Janet be there to accept? *rolls eyes*

  • hello1

    the problem with award shows now is that they make viewers vote! and though it sounds like a good idea, the only ones voting are teens, or should i call them the “Twilight fans”. The VMA’s, MTV Movie Awards, Teen Choice awards, Peoples Choice awards are bombarded with Twilight fans who also love Jonas Bros, Taylor Swift, High School Musical. No doubt Taylor Swift will win everything shes nomainated for because she used Twitter and Myspace. At the VMA’s she beat Beyonce for best female video because it was up to fans. Older people dont vote 24/7 on the internet for Kings of Leon to win Artist of the Year. Nope, count on the teeny boppers to make Taylor Swift win. UGH

  • Realme2008

    Snoop Dogg is like a giant or something. He towers over Adam. What the hell was in his food? lol

  • darrrrrrrr

    @the_boyfriend:

    ummmm, STFU! hes way more deserving than most of the so call talent on that list!

  • Spock

    Paula is a sweetie but is she still on those neck pain meds? She was stuttering again.

    Adam was so articulate. LOL at Snoop calling him “my main man Adam” and them being named “Doggbert”.

  • meiga

    Adam will perform his 1st single at the AMAs.YAY!!!

  • yoyo

    Quite possibly the strangest combination of fruitcakes I’ve ever seen.

  • suzy q

    Looks like a picture from a Halloween party. What’s with the costumes folks?

  • Anita

    Beyoncé is the BEST!!!!!!!! <3

  • Jory

    OMG OMG THUD !! ADAM beyond hot sexy so so effin sexy .. THUD !! and he is performing n AMA OMG i luv my life i am so happy 4 him and super proud :) he deserve all this and more .. can’t wait :)

  • ok

    EMINEM!!

  • Nela

    Adam, the look is too feminine for my taste, sorry! I’m a woman, you know, so I like men to look like men, but i still think his voice is amazing and I’ll buy his CD when it comes out.

  • Condemor

    ADAM looks like liza minelly here, man,….so funny,……What the h e l l happened to his stylis? He looks like a freak!

  • LYNN

    THE LOOK IS TOO GAY, SORRY, ADAM, DON’T LIKE IT,……..

  • Stupse

    He is Gay!

  • Stupse

    LOL ! That one was too easy!

  • mdx23

    wtf with the nominees??? lol where’s britney anyways?

  • BBQ

    OK….Y IS MICHAEL JACKSON NOMINATED?
    THAT ALBUM CAME OUT IN 2003.
    IT LOOKS LIKE THE AMAS FELT OBLIGATED TO NOMINATE HIM.
    WHAT THEY SHOULD HAVE DONE IS CREATED A SPECIAL AWARD FOR HIM AND HAVE JANET ACCEPT IT IN HIS HONOR. THAT WOULD HAVE MADE MORE SENSE

  • Sheldon210

    WHERE THE HECK IS BRITNEY!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?

    kelly clarkson wasnt nominated at all?? thats ridiculous, she deserves some nominess!

  • forever56

    Wow.. uhm. Adam I love you to death, but seriously. the look isn’t working. especially the hair… err….haha

  • janice 2009

    Michael Jackson deserves it all! Compare his career to everyone else then you will have your answer. Hell, when you sale close to a billion albums, then I will sing your praises too!

  • buck

    I love the hair. LOVE IT.

    He is one gorgeous man.

  • LuckyL

    Lol, Adam’s career is so much better than that other kid’s.

  • tinseltunes

    i LOVE THIS PICTURE, i love how opposite they all are to each other in terms of EVERYTHING! this picture totally rocks. paula abdul does not age, period. i wish she was still on idol but was so funny as the judge on drop dead diva. i hope she starts doing more hosting stuff. snoop dogg looks like a mature old man with the glasses. and as always, adam is working his rockstar hair!

  • tinseltunes

    Paula Abdul should introduce Adam Lambert when he sings his single on the AMA’s. that would be cool. as a judge on idol she went through the whole starmaker process with him, that would be so cool.

  • Leolady

    Not trying to be mean….but how does a girl that cannot sing very well, rule the music industry??? TS! I just don’t understand! I saw her in concert and it was like Holiday on Ice but without the ice…..all she needed was the Disney characters on stage with her. She rules Pop and Country! She really does not belong in the Country category at all in my opinion!

  • Daf

    where is my Britney.

  • 11fgt

    best of luck to kings of leon <33

  • Rose

    Go B.E.P!!! Best everything of 2009 :D

    And then Beyonce …

  • http://www.crookedbrook.com/ Chef de Cuisine

    Spare me.

  • vmars111

    Wow, what a joke of an award show!

    Not only is this award moot for handing awards to the nominee with the most audience votes, they couldn’t even categorize some of the nominees correctly! How the heck do Eminem and TI qualify for both Pop/Rock and Hip-Hop/Rap categories???

  • dada

    He is a glampire : )

  • dave

    @Condemor: So what do you look like…princess….a dog probably..stop being so judgemental

  • dave

    @Stupse: Homophobe…ignorant butt wipe…go back to the dark ages…

  • Lock

    @Anita:

    She is yours, not mine.

  • Anne

    Michael so totally deserves these awards,although I wish they had thought of this earlier, before he died. Sad how all of his beautiful talent is really recognized after his death.

    On another note, these Adam photos nearly gave me a heart attack! The man is gorgeous! :)

    Thank you, Jared!

  • yo mama

    Michael Jackson’s new single is old. Didn’t he record the song like 30 years ago? What a joke. He should not be nominated at all.

  • MARI

    adam looks so adorable

  • caroline

    wow jennifer lopez yeah!!!

  • GlamgirlJen

    ADAM!!!!!!!!! Yesssss cant wait….dont usually watch this show but Im a huge fan of Adams and will be watching and waiting for the day to come to hear him perform. Cant fricken wait!

  • http://www.zoomtown.com TY

    I agree with leolady–Taylor Swift does NOT belong in the country catagory. She has used the tween fans and country music as a stepping stone to get to pop—-and the sad thing is–the tweens just don’t see it and vote for her. She sings off key and her songs sound the same–and always in the same keys. VOTE FOR bEYONCE–AND-CARRIE UNDERWOOD————REAL ARTISTS WITH TALENT.!!!!!

  • airi7791

    umm yea the only reason mj got all those is bc he died no one cared about him b4 he did.thats real dumb.

  • KarenBlue

    SUPER TRIO Anastacia – Nelly Furtado – Madonna

  • Damion

    Ok, as if the AMAs haven’t been losing enough credability with their generally idiotic nominations and handing the winning statue to whoever is willing to show up at the show, they go and nominate MICHAEL JACKSON? The man hasn’t recorded a note in years and thus should not even be close to being elligible for ANYTHING (and lord knows his new single should be buried right along side him). Nominating an artist who released nothing and nominating an album that came out years ago just proves once again just how much of a useless joke the AMAs have become.

    People nominated for any award right now should have absolutely RECORDED NEW MATERIAL in the last year or not have a chance in hell of a nomination under any circumstance. MJ has nothing to be rewarded for except for maybe having the best funeral of the year (if Kanye is ok with someone saying that.).

    What a joke.

  • Damion

    @janice 2009:

    Wow, you’re an idiot. The man did nothing this year but almost start a tour and die. Wait, he hasn’t done anything for a BUNCH of years. Nominating anyone who hasn’t RECORDED something in the last twelve months is completely idiotic. The AMAs are enough of a joke as it is…nominating the dead guy just makes them lose all credibility. IF he wins anything, what the hellwould his ghost say? “Thank you for giving me an award for releasing nothing musically-related in years!”
