Let's be honest here: most award shows are disappointing, and it's hard to understand why. A lot of our favorite artists were in the building for last night's American Music Awards, the production value was sky-high, and yet it was less exciting than a good blog post. We enjoyed Eminem and, to a lesser extent, 50 Cent's set though. It didn't suffer from the unmatchable hype of someone like Rihanna's performance. Nah, the duo's time on stage for "Crack A Bottle" and "Forever" was simple, brief, and technically sound. Sometimes that's all you need.
