Last night's American Music Awards telecast was a circus. Between J-Lo falling down during what was supposed to be her triumphant return to the stage and Lady Gaga's fiery piano and Rihanna's flashing lights shoulder pads, the ladies were running this muthafather...into the ground. One of the few females keeping the show from drowning was Mary J. Blige, who stood above the rest in her six-inch heels and sang her new single, "I Am." While the song had to grow on me, the performance sure didn't. It was simple, yet effective. Grown folks music. Those other females should take notes. You know, in between prat falls and lighting firecrackers. Take a peek below, as the Month of Mary rolls on.
