Can we go back to 2008, like, right now? We don’t want to say any AMAs is better than another, but 2008 was a true gem and we’re having a hard time believing it actually happened. It was one of those rare occasions when nearly every guest was one of the biggest names in the world. I mean, Beyoncé, Mariah Carey, Rihanna, Taylor Swift and Christina Aguilera ALL PERFORMED–just to share a few. Shall we review what went down?
Beyoncé performed the one and only “Single Ladies” choreography
Legend Mariah Carey performed “I Stay In Love” and received an Award of Achievement
