Rihanna, Kanye West ‘Thankful’, AMA Winners Recapped

After Mariah Carey gave a performance of “Stay In Love” and Pink’s “Sobering’ set was over, Chris Brown, Rihanna and Kanye West walked away as the top winners at Sunday’s American Music Awards. Brown and Rihanna, who both admitted their wins were ‘surprising,’ beat out veteran R&B stars Usher and Mary J. Blige respectively by taking home two of three Soul/R&B awards. In fact the only other R&B star to take home an award was Alicia Keys, who won Favorite Pop/Rock album for “As I Am,” besting the likes of Coldplay and the Eagles. On the Hip Hop side, Kanye West won two of three Rap/Hip Hop Awards beating out Lil Wayne, who West said was more deserving of the award: “I got my opinion. And I want to give this award to Wayne, for this year. If it was last year, this would have been my award.
