As loathe as I am to plug any of far, far too many music awards shows, The 2014 American Music Awards® has piqued my interest by garnering a performance from Lorde. The Kiwi artist writes impressive tunes and performs them in a way that reminds of Joe Cocker, though more subdued – and her vocal abilities are very different.
It’s just a shame that the announcement of Lorde’s performance had to include the appearance of the insipid One Direction.
The 2014 American Music Award® will be broadcast live on Sunday, November 23rd. I will be paying attention for about four, or five, minutes.
On November 27th (8/7C), FOX will air the two-hour special, The Great American Dog-a-thon. Executive produced and co-hosted by Hilary Swank this celebration of man’s best friend will be focused on the joy a recue pet can bring into our lives.
Some of the celebrities taking part include Betty White, Josh Duhamel, Fergie, Miranda Lambert, Kristen Bell and Kesha.
