American Music Awards 2011 Recap + Notable Performance Videos including Mary J. Blige, Jennifer Lopez and MORE!!!

Looks like this year’s AMA’s were on par with usual expectations. We watch for the performances knowing that, in many cases, the deserved winners will still be sitting in their chairs watching someone else get the award they deserved. We were pretty surprised by several of the category results, but still wish to congratulate all of those that were nominated and those that ultimately won.

Regardless of the musical winners, it does look like Jennifer Hudson with her even more slimmed down bod.  Go JHud! Represent!
