Full List of American Music Awards 2009 Winners

The AMA was created by Dick Clark in 1973 to compete with the Grammys after the move of that year’s show to Nashville, Tennessee led to CBS picking up the Grammy telecasts after its first two in 1971 and 1972 were broadcast on ABC. Nominations are presented in eight categories: Pop/Rock, Country, Soul/Rhythm & Blues, Rap/Hip Hop, Latin Music, Alternative Music, Contemporary Inspirational and Adult Contemporary categories. While the Grammys are awarded based on votes by members of the entertainment industry, the AMAs are determined by a poll of music buyers, and as a result is more of a representative of public opinion.

For this year 2009, American Music Award or AMA ’09 transpired last night at Nokia Theater, Los Angeles CA. Taylor Swift and Michael Jackson were among the biggest winners for this year’d AMA.
