No “Idol” alums won an American Music Award but Daughtry, Jennifer Lopez and Kelly Clarkson performed while Adam Lambert and Jennifer Hudson presented. (Judge Lopez did win a Best Latin Artist award.)
Also, “The Voice” judges Maroon 5 and Christina Aguilera performed “Moves Like Jagger.”
Here is Clarkson in a big spangly red dress doing a big-band version of “Mr. Know It All.” The song is still gaining spins on the top 40 charts but is jammed in the teens, currently at No. 14 on the Mediabase 24/7 chart. (On Hot AC, it’s at No. 3). Clarkson will be at the Fabulous Fox Theatre Feb. 23.
Daughtry was the only rock band on the show (unless you count Maroon 5 as “rock”). They performed “Crawling Back To You.” The song edged into the top 10 this week on the Hot AC chart. He’ll be headlining the Star 94 Jingle Jam Dec. 13 at Gwinnett Arena:
Jennifer Lopez did a medley:
