TV Tonight: The American Music Awards


Sure, tonight's American Music Awards are all about the music. But they also mark the first time Jimmy Kimmel will appear on TV since the Hollywood writers' strike kicked off two weeks back. So if you like Kimmel, you'll definitely want to tune in to the show, which starts at 8 p.m. on ABC; who knows when we'll see him again?

But back to the music. Tonight's ceremony features a star-studded list of performers, from Alicia Keys to will.i.am to Daughtry to Sugarland. The awards honor many different styles of music, and the nominations are really spread around this year, with Beyonce, Justin Timberlake, Daughtry and Linkin Park the only artists to receive three nominations. Some of the most intriguing categories: Timbaland and Justin Timberlake facing off with Akon for Male Pop/Rock Artist, the three single-name divas — Beyonce, Fantasia, Rihanna — battling in the Female Soul/R&B Artist category, and the Daughtry vs. Norah Jones vs. John Mayer race for the Adult Contemporary Artist award. Should be an interesting night.

To see a full list of the performers and presenters, just

Performers:
Mary J. Blige, Jonas Brothers, Lenny Kravitz, Queen Latifah, Rascal Flatts, Sugarland, Alicia Keys, Avril Lavigne, Celine Dion, Chris Brown, Daughtry, Duran Duran, Fergie, Maroon 5, Nicole Scherzinger, Rihanna and will.i.am
