Follow along in our live blog below.
5:00pm EST: Did you know the American Music Awards are three hours long? That's why this intro is 15 minutes long.
5:02: Taylor Swift's “Blank Space is up first. If you're not familiar, it's the new single from her runaway hit album “1989” and is by far her CRAZY-CRAZIEST-EYED song ever. How many men will she kill in this performance?
5:04 I lost count of dead ex-lovers. Is this “Fury?” Did you see that perfectly set of crazy eyes? She's on her knees pulling her best “Bad Romance.” I'm kind of in love with her now, too, I should wear a hazmat suit.
5:06 Pitbull is just shouting buzzwords at me now. Off the chain! Raising roofs! Music, go team, score all the points!
5:08 “Not all Latinos are Mexican. Mexicano!” Pitbull starts. It's like a joke with no punchline. “President Obama said we can all stay.”
5:09 Iggy Azalea is not impressed with Pitbull having admitted watching her “Booty” video hundreds of times in slow motion. Iggy Azalea is a serious artist, Azalea thinks to herself. Iggy Azalea's booty is, like, art.
