The American Music Awards (AMAs) are this Sunday night on ABC, channel 7 or 8 at 8 pm. Yes, the Grammy’s are the granddaddy awards show for music, but I prefer the AMAs from a viewers standpoint. The transitions are faster and more awards are given out on stage. More importantly, I seem to do better when choosing who will win.

Katy Perry will open the show with 'Unconditionally,' her new Moose Track. Here's the video for 'Unconditionally.'

Other performers on the AMA's are Jennifer Lopez and TLC. Li'l Mama will replace Lisa ‘Left Eye’ Lopez. Also on stage: Florida Georgia Line, Lady Gaga, Kesha, Imagine Dragons, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, One Direction, Justin Timberlake, Pitbull and the twerking Miley Cyrus.
