    Re: Carrie Underwood

    I agree with all of you. Taylor is a sweetheart, a gifted songwriter, has brought in millions of dollars to country music with her success, but she can't sing a note, ugh! And then to win EOTY on top of that, a 19 year old, who has had ONE great year, compared to the others in that same category, what a disgrace!

    Well, I can understand Entertainer of the Year(not years), because she was one of the biggest entertainers this year even when taking into account other genres, however I agree about Female Vocalist of the Year - - that rightfully belonged to Carrie, or at least one of the others.

    TS winning is the biggest joke of the century, this young gal does not sing well at all. Her voice is weak, she doesn't sing in tune. Mediocore singer? She is below average, her singing. Miley Cyrus sings just a little better than she does.

    Who votes for female vocalist of the year, the fans?

    I read this morning that Carrie was saying "How were we?", I believe she was referring to her and Brad Paisley's performance as co-hosts. Some were saying she's jealous of TS, I don't think so. Jealous of what!!

    Carrie was absolutely refering to her and Brad's performance as co-hosts. She said "How were we? We were awesome! and giggled" She waved her hand at Brad and back to herself when she said "we were awesome" to indicate that's what she meant. Brad knew that's what she meant because he motioned with his hand to her as well. They they said the closing statements. (if there's controversy I haven't seen anything yet) I don't know why she would be jealous of TS. I thought Carrie looked pretty happy for her when TS won female vocalist. I'm not as thrilled with TS's win! Any of the others I would be happy with as they are good vocalists. It does seem a shame that TS won that when she doesn't sing in tune. I like most of her songs but I always fast forward through them when she sings live, last night was no exception. I really tried, but after a few bum notes I just couldn't stand it. My daughter and I always talk about how badly she sings live. EOTY I am actually ok with. She had a great year, and was a huge entertainer. I thought Kenny Chesney was very sweet when she won. He turned around and hugged her and said something to her. Love to know what that was!

    Re: Carrie Underwood

    Let me preface this by saying that I'm not a big fan of country.
    I do think, though, that Carrie Underwood was definitely one of the best winners who has come across the AI stage or any other stage.
    When I first saw Taylor Swift perform live, I was very surprised at the voice, or seemingly lack thereof. However, since then, I've grown to understand that it is about the very poignant lyrics that she puts into all of her songs.
    Way back when Bob Dylan was one of the weakest singers ever to set foot on a stage, yet he became a superstar largely due to his lyrics.
    I've now seen Taylor a number of times on various shows, interviews, acting on CSI, etc. There's no denying her appeal and I do think she deserved the Entertainer award.
    I do not think she deserved best vocalist. I think Carrie did. But the AMA's, much like the Grammys, do NOT always reflect acuracy; they reflect popularity and a lot of other factors.

    Sine TAylor is now the reigning Female Vocalist of the year, someone took the time to put together a little video. It's pretty startling & actually it would be funny if it wasn't so painful.

    Search youtube for the following & get a load of the comparison.

    AMA 2009: Carrie Underwood, Lady GaGa, Kelly Clarkson Continue to Impress The Conservative Journal

    Monday, November 23, 2009...1:33 AM
    AMA 2009: Carrie Underwood, Lady GaGa, Kelly Clarkson Continue to Impress

    Since I had nothing else to do tonight, I decided I’d watch the AMA’s. That show made me realize just how well-done the CMA’s. Anyway, this year’s AMA’s came across as more of a concert series than an awards show, since awards were given out in the 5 second transitions between performers. Here are the highlights (and lowlights):

    Great:

    Carrie Underwood delivered another knock-out performance of “Cowboy Casanova,” this time with even more dancers. The vocals for this one were spot-on. This was probably the best overall performance she’s given of this song so far. The general mediocrity of the majority of the other performers made her look even better than she did on her own merit.

    Kelly Clarkson gave an outstanding rendition of “Already Gone” without all of the bells and whistles of the studio version. She reminds us all that she’s still got it, despite less-than-stellar live performances in the past few years (see, “Never Again” live on AI).

    The one and only Lady Gaga convinced me to look at her new album, The Fame Monster (in stores tomorrow), after wowing in her performance of “Bad Romance”/”Speechless.” I’m thinking “Bad Romance” may have been at the very least partially lip-synced, but “Speechless” was the real deal and it was great. Not to mention Gaga is incredibly entertaining.

    Alicia Keys shined during her two performances, both of which made up for her disappointingly bland lead-off single from her latest album.

    Good/Okay:

    The Black Eyed Peas performed an unrecognizable medley of their latest hits because apparently they’ve spent half a year at #1? On what chart? Regardless, that’s a huge accomplishment. And while the whole performance came together as a bunch of noise and lights, Fergie still showed everyone that she can and does sing quite well. If only we could hook her up with another gig singing Heart covers (see, Idol Gives Back).

    Former Idol-contestant Chris Daughtry performed his latest single “Life After You.” I can’t fault the vocals, but I can say it was incredibly boring and unmemorable. It’s only been an hour since I watched and I have no idea what the song sounded like.

    Life-long divas Mary J. Blige and Whitney Houston delivered good performances (in comparison to their “norm”) and Houston was honored with some international award accomplishment. I’m glad she’s trying to turn things around.

    The Bad

    Janet Jackson got the first ten minutes of the show to lip-sync and dance around sporadically. Could’ve used that ten minutes to allow the latest American Idol Kris Allen winner and the immensely talented teen star Demi Lovato to perform instead of reducing them to lowly presenters.

    Perez Hilton was in attendance and was allowed to speak.

    Taylor Swift once again sweeped all of her categories and gave acceptance speeches “live” from the UK. Doubt it. They were obviously pre-taped and Taylor acted surprised the whole time. I don’t really think MJ deserved “Artist of the Year” more, but I certainly don’t think he deserved it less. Gaga should have won it.

    Green Day cracks and squeels through “21 Guns,” causing me to wonder if and why people still listen to that crap.

    And finally, the worst part of the night was Adam Lambert’s atrocious and over-hyped show closing performance of “For Your Entertainment.” Suggestive dance moves aside, the vocals were terrible. He sounded like 40’s-era versions of Mortimer Mouse (Mickey’s cousin or whatever) on helium. Not to mention he fell and then made out with some ambiguously gendered keyboarder midway through. I just ask that I not be subjected to gay porn while I’m trying to eat a bowl of mini-wheats. Thank you.
