The Best and Worst of the AMAs 2014 -- what did you think?

As a fan-voted competition, the American Music Awards are — no offense to that terrifying pointy trophy — much more about the performances than the prizes (most of which were given away off-camera anyway).

So what were your favorite moments? Did you love or hate Taylor Swift turning “Blank Space” into an Andrew Lloyd Weber extravaganza? What did you think of J.Lo’s “Booty,” and booty? Was Selena Gomez definitely crying? Is that dance Lorde does chiropractically safe to imitate at home?

We’ll have our full performance gallery up soon, but in the meantime share your thoughts on tonight’s intermittently censored and generally entertaining show in the comments below.

Christina Aguilera hits No. 1 on iTunes following the AMAs: What a difference one year makes

Let’s flashback to the 2012 American Music Awards for a moment and focus on everyone’s favorite perennially-peroxided diva, Christina Aguilera.

The belty pop star was attending the show after a very bad week. Her supposed comeback album Lotus had just delivered wilting first-week sales of only 73,000 copies. (The poorly-reviewed set would go on to become her worst-selling album ever.) And to make matters worse, she’d given up her highly-coveted chair on NBC’s reality smash The Voice for its upcoming fourth season to focus on her career, though it was already apparent there would be no sold-out tour the following spring.

What you didn't see on TV at the American Music Awards: Gaga, Katy, Miley, Rihanna, and more

The night started with a gallop, as we saw Lady Gaga make the type of grand entrance onto the red carpet we’ve come to expect — this time by riding a white “horse.” But then we headed inside the packed Nokia Theatre, where things only got crazier.

Katy Perry opened the show with a Geisha-themed performance of her new song “Unconditionally,” with a cascade of flower petals falling on the stage towards the end. The only problem was that the petals continued to fall throughout the show, even briefly interrupting One Direction and Ariana Grande’s performances.

AMAs 2013: TLC reunite, with Lil' Mama as Left Eye, to perform 'Waterfalls' -- VIDEO

TLC kinda-sorta reunited at this year’s American Music Awards, as Tionne “T-Boz” Watkins and Rozonda “Chilli” Thomas performed their ’90s megahit “Waterfalls.” Replacing the late Lisa “Left Eye” Lopes was Lil Mama, who actually played Left Eye in the recent TLC biopic. The result was a performance that sat somewhere between reunion and homage — or heresy, depending on your perspective. Watch video of the performance below: READ FULL STORY
