Full List of Winners of 2009 American Music Awards

Announcing the Winners: 2009 American Music Awards

The American Music Awards show is over, and I've got your full list of who earned trophies. Following her big CMA wins, Taylor Swift dominated in the female categories, taking home AMAs for favorite artist in both pop and country categories as well as the top honor of them all: Artist of the Year.

Besides Ms. Swift, there were plenty of others who triumphed, like country act Gloriana, who pulled off a shocker of an upset with Breakthrough Artist over Lady Gaga. (Even Gloriana poked fun at the win, asking the audience to raise a show of hands if they didn't know who they are.) Michael Jackson won four posthumous honors, and his brother Jermaine took the stage with family members to accept on his behalf. I'll be going over all of the highlights from the show tomorrow — including some of my red carpet coverage and notes from the press room — so check back then! For now, be sure to vote on Fab's fashion polls and Bella's beauty polls from the night's looks.

I'm sorry but the only reason we even talk about Lady Gaga is because she is a FREAKSHOW! her music on its own is not very good and if it weren't for her get ups and performances no one would even give a darn about her..

Didn't watch this show because I don't care, but seriously? This is the best they can do? The list of winners and nominees were horrible, especially the alternative list. The only good win was Jay-z.
