These awards meant something years ago. I don't know if you know this, but the American Music Awards were created because ABC lost the Grammy Awards to CBS in the early 1970's. Back then, people who actually had talent were nominated for these awards. But now, anything can get an AMA nomination.

If any of you are saddened by the failure of your favorite to make it to this particular shortlist, please don't care. They certainly don't.

People wonder why Americans have awful pop radio: it's the propagation of awards shows like these, which supposedly honor quality, that tricks people into thinking their hideous taste is acceptable. Dick Clark goes on my "People to be Banished to Iraq" list.

The Grammys ain't much better...sometimes they nail some really good nominees, but the crap always rises to the podium...
