Michael Jackson's Legacy Leads to an Awkward American Music Awards Ceremony
Of course Michael should be nominated. He was and will remain one of the greatest entertainers that ever walked the earth. He also – and I say this for the benefit of some of the detractors above, has an album and a single out. And yes, I am aware that these nominations are as much about acknowledging the growing worldwide calls for Michael’s name to be decisively vindicated as they are about recognizing the peerlessness of his musical legacy.
I don't think there is enough juice in the show to make it appealing to watch for me, though I'll definitely look for clips on Monday. And I really don't have to worry about Taylor Swift. After her experiences this year she probably knows to expect anything...either the awkwardness of losing, the awkwardness of beating Jackson, or the awkwardness of any siting of Kanye West.
Are you into it, or do you think that Jackson shouldn't still be in the running for American Music Awards?
