After much debate and against all odds (but Twitter) Taylor Swift took home Artist of the Year award. Before the show, I bet on Justin Timberlake taking the prize. But after I saw Florida Georgia Line winning Single of the Year. I found out that country music lovers really have a big say on this award’s show. And that combined to the “Swifties” army made Taylor win this award for the third time. She received a total of four awards, more than any other artist. In fact, she only lost one award: Pop/Rock Album to One Direction -who also won Pop/Rock Duo/Group.
In a year of rappers and country singers supporting gay rights. And Miley Cyrus twerking and smoking joints everywhere (Happy Birthday Miley by the way). Nobody had paid the proper attention to Justin Timberlake’s incredible comeback to the music scene.
Justin Timberlake was -in the early 2000s- the equivalent of what (another Justin) Bieber is today for kids. However he is far much more talented and professional, less controversial, and is able to reach a wider audience that doesn’t stick to underage teens or pop music fans. And despite odds say otherwise but for all the right reasons (above) this can be Justin’s year at the American Music Awards, to take place tomorrow (November 24th) at the Nokia Theater in Los Angeles.
