American Music Awards Performers, Including Rihanna, Taylor Swift, New Kids on the Block, The Backstreet Boys, and More

Which AMA Performance Was Your Favorite?

Between the winner speeches, the American Music Awards served up plenty of performances from some of the hottest acts in music right now. Rihanna opened up the night with a medley of her new hits, but she was only the first in a long line of musicians to take the stage.

The boys' choir in Katy Perry's "Firework" totally gave me goosebumps, Taylor Swift's "Back to December" was subdued but powerful, and yes, I loved seeing the Backstreet Boys and New Kids on the Block together. There were too many artists to name here, but some performances were definitely more exciting than others. I've included several of my picks below — tell me which was your favorite?

Absolutely, Stunning Taylor Swift! She is doing very well right now with her Confidence and Passion. An outstanding role model with the younger crowd and that's fine with Sweet Kirstin Suzanne's Old School is Cool Generation! Thank you, Lauren. :sing: :pinkribbon: sweetkirstin :heart:

I think you mean which performance was the least terrible...and even then it would be hard to choose...I'd go with the NKOTB-BSB mash-up and only for the sake of nostalgia.

I enjoyed a lot the Enrique Iglesias performance. The band was a great idea.
