We may be a few days shy of Thanksgiving, but LMFAO transported us to summer with their 2011 American Music Awards performance of their ubiquitous 'Party Rock Anthem,' which was the most-played song of the warm months. The duo mashed up their summer hit with their current jam 'Sexy and I Know It,' which was the final performance of the star-studded event. One might say that LMFAO closed the show with a sexy party, to borrow a phrase from Stewie Griffin of 'Family Guy.'

Daughtry delivered a much needed dose of emotion and rock edginess to the Nokia Theatre stage at the 2011 American Music Awards. Chris Daughtry led his rock outfit through the band's track 'Crawling Back to You,' with the guys putting on an electrifying and pyrotechnic-filled performance for the AMA viewers.
In these worst dressed pictures from the 2011 American Music Awards, PopCrush recounts the most appalling outfits of the night. The first artist to make an appearance in our worst dressed gallery is none other than the beloved Justin Bieber. Seriously, somebody needs to tell Bieber that not all risks are worth taking, like wearing an over-sized tuxedo to an award show that most men don't even wear ties to. Your Beliebers will surely be disappointed with this outfit choice, Justin.
Taylor Swift won the award for Favorite Country Album at the 2011 American Music Awards. Swift beat out Jason Aldean and the Band Perry for this honor, and either she doesn't realize she's the biggest country star in the world, and truly keeps getting surprised by all these honors, or she's a really good actress. Either way, we're happy for the country pop cutie!

Taylor Swift won her 10th American Music Award in the form of the 2011 AMA for Artist of the Year, beating out some stiff competition from the likes of Adele, Lady Gaga, Lil Wayne and Katy Perry. Weezy was surrounded by a lot of beautiful and talented women in this category, wasn't he? Nevertheless, Swift expressed a mixture of shock, awe and joy when her name was announced. They like you, Taylor. They really like you. What's not to like about T. Swift?
In the middle of Maroon 5's performance of their catchier-than-a-cold smash single 'Moves Like Jagger' on the 2011 American Music Awards, the camera cut to the crowd where besties Taylor Swift and Selena Gomez were on their feet, singing along and grooving like they were a pair of fans at a Maroon 5 concert. Hey Adam Levine, Taylor and Selena dig you and your song. Maybe it's high time you collaborate with them, too?
