The Usual Suspects Win Big At The 2006 AMA’s

The 2006 American Music Awards resulted in trophies for The Black Eyed Peas, Kelly Clarkson, the Red Hot Chili Peppers and Rascal Flatts–two of them for each, in fact. From Yahoo! News:

The Black Eyed Peas were named favorite group in the rap/hip hop and soul/rhythm & blues categories. Clarkson captured trophies for pop/rock female and adult contemporary artist, categories presented before the televised presentations began in the performance-filled show. Red Hot Chili Peppers were named favorite alternative artist and favorite pop/rock group. Rascal Flatts won favorite country group and the T-Mobile Text-In award, which is chosen by fans. Blige accepted the female soul/rhythm & blues artist award from surprise presenter Britney Spears. The newly single Spears looked sleek in a knee-length cream-colored frock and long blond hair. Oscar winner Jamie Foxx was named favorite male soul/rhythm & blues artist. “I’m like a rookie in this music thing,” he said. “This means a lot more than you think, man.”

Additionally, the show included performances by Beyonce, Gwen Stefani, Jay-Z, Lionel Richie and Barry Manilow, who is–through the wonder of plastic surgery–is looking more and more like Clay Aiken, who is himself, looking more and more like someone completely different.
