The American Music Awards, known as the AMAs, are given to top performers throughout the music industry on an annual basis. Awards are given in the Pop/Rock, Country, Rap/Hip-Hop, Soul/R&B, Alternative, Adult Contemporary, Latin, Soundtracks and Contemporary Inspirational genres of music. In addition to the awards in each of the genres, an Artist of the Year is named from all groups combined.

The AMAs are voted on by a poll of music buyers and the public. The American Music Awards have nominations based on sales, airplay, activity on social networks, and video viewing.

Dick Clark started the American Music Awards in 1973. Michael Jackson co-hosted the first event with Donny Osmond. Roberta Flack won the first award given in 1973.

Clay Aiken has attended and participated in the AMA’s three times. On November 16, 2003, Clay played a large role in the show. He arrived on the Red Carpet with his friend Amber Nix and was nominated for two awards, Favorite Male Artist and Fan Choice. Clay won the Fan Choice Award. Clay also performed on the program. Clay sang a short version of Invisible and was then joined by Ruben Studdard for an outstanding rendition of Jesus Is Love. They received a standing ovation.

On November 11, 2004. Clay was a presenter on the program. He was joined on stage by Kathy Griffin who was dressed as a bride. She announced to the audience that she was going to marry Clay. Despite the distraction, Clay was able to present the award for the Best Male Country Artist.

Clay hit the Red Carpet one more time at the AMA’s. In 2006, Clay participated in a skit with Tori Spelling. The two made fun of Clay’s tiff with Kelly Ripa and received lots of laughs and applause.

I have to admit that the only times I have watched the show are the three times that Clay Aiken was a part of the show. I am not a huge fan of popular music and so the shows are just not my cup of tea!

The following videos are fun. Clay was amazing when he sang at the AMA’s.

  1. Only watched the AMA’s when Clay was on also – liked the first video of Clay – the second was not so much. Not a fan of Kathy Griffin at all! I did like all of the pics.
    I loved Clay’s acceptance speech for the fan award and also loved Clay and Ruben singing together – Jesus is love!

  2. Thank you for the pictures and the videos. I only watch the awards shows if Clay was on. I first video when Clay won the award is great. The second one is not so great. I do like the pictures. Thank you CANN.
