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.
