American Music Awards – Red Carpet Live – David Cook Performs

ETA: I’m still updating this post with photos. Check out Archie and T-Pain! Just put up some Cook photos…Just put up Daughtry…And I fixed the technical issue with the photos…

Live blog, photos and video of the AMA Red Carpet show after the JUMP…

Carrie Ann Inabo and Chris Harrison are hosts. Look, its Miley Cyrus and the Jonas Brothers!

Christina Aguilera is opening the show with “7 songs in 7 minutes” of her greatest hits. She’s pimping her greatest hits album Decade of Hits. The Jonas Brothers are discussing their wardrobe with Carrie Ann. Brooks Brothers! Fascinating. They’ll be performing a song later, called “Tonight”.

Carrie Ann interviews Jamie Foxx. They worked on In Living Color together. I did not know that! He’s got an album coming out December 16. He rattled off a list of star producers he’s working with. All these people are pimping something.

DAVID ARCHULETA IN THE HOUSE! He’s dressed in dark blue. Very nice. The ladies’ attentions makes him feel a little “awkward”. Carrie Ann calls him a “hunk”. Lolz.

David Cook performs “Declaration”. BUT THEN THEY CUT TO COMMERCIAL IN THE MIDDLE OF IT. Wtf?

Leona Lewis tells Carrie Ann she’s gone “20’s 30s” in her wardrobe, and she’s singing “Better in Time” later. She claims Simon Cowell has never given her any negative comments.

Nicole, the chick from the Pussycat Dolls interviews The New Kids on the Block who are no longer kids. Sads. They appeared on the Pussycat Dolls album. What a gig! The “kids” are forced to watch an embarrassing clip of their performance on the 1999 AMA’s. Super Sads.

Colbie Caillat is wearing a dress made of flowers. She looks like she’s wearing someone’s lawn.

Chris Brown and his giant sunglasses go by in a flash. The Pussycat Dolls were dressed by that nutball Christian Siriano.

Daughtry’s “What About Now” plays in the background of an ad for The Bachelor. Now I’m going to watch it! Psych.

Back from break and there’s Carrie Ann with Daughtry. Carrie Ann touches his head and declares it “really smooth”. They’re babbling on about Dennis Rodman. The band feels severely upstaged by the Jonas brothers, but they are excited to be nominated for 2 awards anyway.

Miley Cyrus tells Nicole it’s her birthday. She’s turning 16 for like, the 16th time. Go away, Miley!

David Cook performs “Light On” Hopefully he won’t be cut off this time. I spy somebody with a video camera! Video coming! Cook looks great in a black vest and gray pinstripes. He’s really getting the hang of singing this difficult song. He’s cheating! He’s got the crowd singing the soft part. Nice job.

Some chick from Camp Rock is only 16, and she swears she’s been through “a lot”. Like, I’m sure.

Ne-Yo is performing a medley of “Miss Independent” and “Closer” tonight. I loooove. “Closer”. He’s also starring in a movie called “Venice Beach.” It’s “loosely” based on himself.

OMG the AMA’s are AMAZING says the wacked-out and annoyingly OTT Christian Siriano.

Carrie Ann interviews Taylor Swift who is a big fan of Sarah Silverman. Hm.

Nicole interviews Steven Tyler and Joe Perry from Aerosmith, who will be presenting tonight, and it’s a little awkward!

Jesse McCartney tells Carrie Ann he is introducing Leona Lewis tonight. He co-write her monster smash “Bleeding Love”. At this point, he’s her slave-boy. Jesse used to blast Aerosmith on “volume 11”

Archie’s fave Natasha Bedingfield, tells Carrie Ann that she’s performing “Pocketful of Sunshine”, “Soulmate” and “Unwritten”. She’s singing right after Annie Lennox. Ruh rho.

Alicia Keys has a giant diamond dripping down her scalp, bindi style. She says she’s a big fan of Coldplay and the Eagles. Who knew.

More crazy fashion from Christian Siriani. Er, he’s laying it on a little thick, don’t you think?

Carrie Ann and Chris introduce the Wire Image photographer. You’ll be seeing the photos on the internet, they say. Actually, you will see the photos right here. Check it out.
