American Music Awards

The American Music Awards (AMA) is an annual show that celebrates American Music and those that perform it. Dick Clark created the AMAs in 1973 and stars Michael Jackson and Donny Osmond co hosted the first show with Rodney Allen Rippy and Ricky Segall. The main difference between the Grammies and the AMAs is the way votes are calculated. The Grammies are voted on by members of the entertainment industry. The AMAs are voted on by music buyers, and are more of a public opinion. The American Music Awards have nominations based on sales and airplay (even if the album is old), while the Grammes only nominate albums from their eligibility period. Thus the reason that Michael Jackson can receive an AMA nomination and potential award. So tune into night for the AMAs on ABC where Jamie Foxx will be the host and find out what star will go home with the biggest prize of all
