American Music Awards 2012: Bieber Night

 

The American Music Awards know their place in the landscape of music-related award shows.

The ceremony doesn't have the prestige of the Grammys or the cheeky irreverence of MTV's Video Music Awards — and certainly not the ratings of either.

But where the show, which aired Sunday evening on ABC, excels is its ability to provide pop spectacle.

Splashy commercials leading into the program featured a simple tagline: "Your playlist goes live." And this is one award show where radio hits — not the trophies — seem to matter most.

"This is for all the haters who thought I'd be here for only one or two years," Justin Bieber declared as he clutched his win for favorite pop/rock male artist. "But I think I'm gonna be for a long time."

Before Bieber became one of the biggest stars on the planet, it was thought his success would wane when puberty hit.

Latin Grammy Awards, Hot, Hot, Hot

 

The 13th annual Latin Grammy Awards on Thursday night anointed a new favorite for the Latin Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences: Jesse & Joy, a duo of Mexican siblings whose heartbroken ballad “¡Corre!” (“Run!”) was named song of the year (an award for the songwriters) and record of the year (for the recorded single), stealing the spotlight from regular Latin Grammy winners.

In the awards show, broadcast from Las Vegas on Univision, Jesse & Joy’s third album of pop-rock, “¿Con Quién Se Queda El Perro?” was named best contemporary pop album, while another single by the duo, “Me Voy,” received the best music video award. Jesse & Joy, whose last name is Huerta, won the Latin Grammy for best new artist in 2007; this year, they started running out of people to thank.

Matt Lauer is Damaged Goods

 

According to the Daily News, Matt Lauer is so yesterday.

TV industry insiders say no amount of NBC executive reshuffling can save the embattled “Today” show — until its longtime co-host throws in the towel.

Lauer has been blamed for the show’s ratings woes, which intensified in June when co-host Ann Curry was suddenly ditched and replaced by Savannah Guthrie.

“This problem is not going to go away until Matt Lauer does,” a prominent former NBC News exec told the Daily News on Tuesday. “He’s great, but fairly or unfairly, his brand is damaged.”

The sentiment comes just as a new production team is poised to take over “Today,” which has fallen into second place this year behind archrival “Good Morning America” in the cutthroat ratings race.

Rihanna: Lights up SNL

Saturday night Rihanna was the musical guest on variety series mainstay Saturday Night Live as Anne Hathaway was the host. This isn't the first time Riri has performed on the show, as she has done so most recently back in the spring of this year. This was different for the usual musical guest at SNL in that they used a green screen in the background for her first performance. That was of course her massive hit 'Diamonds' which currently sits in the top five on the Billboard 100. Everything from the outfit she was wearing to the actual visions of what was shown on the green screen seemed very psychedelic and different from what we are used to her. This of course counteracting with what she put out with the actual video for the song which was much more cinematographic. The second performance was her brand new song called 'Stay' off of her upcoming album 'Unapologetic'.

Weezy Looses in Court

 

Weezy, has lost a couple of lawsuits over the "The Carter" documentary, according to TMZ.

 A judge reportedly ordered the Young Money head honcho to pay $2,195,000 after ruling in favor of a countersuit filed by producer Quincy Jones III over the documentary, tossing out Lil Wayne's original suit. He originally sued over the use of his music and his "scandalous portrayal" in the 2009 indie film, which followed the MC before and during his "Tha Carter III" album release.

 However, Wayne failed to appear in court to defend his allegations thanks to a medical emergency, with his lawyer playing the rapper's deposition footage instead. The judge dubbed Wayne's deposition interview "irresponsible."

 It's been a busy year in the courtroom for Weezy, who previously settled lawsuits from producers David Kirkwood and Deezle over production royalties from "Tha Carter III."
