Last night's American Music Awards was all about the ladies, with performances by Lady GaGa, Rihanna, Janet Jackson, Mary J. Blige, Jennifer Lopez (who fell on her celebrated rear), and International Artist of the Year Whitney Houston.



The biggest misstep of the night was obviously Jennifer Lopez falling on her butt during her performance of her new song "Louboutins." Ironically, she wasn't in her Louboutins when she fell. (She changed into them later.)

Janet opened the evening with a medley of her greatest hits, and she did the "If" dance!


Then Paula Abdul came out to welcome everyone to the awards. But her mic wasn't on. Poor Paula. (She still sounds drunk to me.)


Rihanna's performance was kind of boring, although her costume did have lasers on it.


But Lady GaGa upstaged her and everyone else.


Still, the Queen of Hip-Hop Soul can't be outdone when it comes to facial expressions.

Whitney won International Artist of the Year, and she brought the house down.


She made Reba cry.

I'm glad we have Whitney back to her old sweaty self.
