Editor’s Note: Videos of the event will be posted soon. We want to state the food and shuttle service provide to media/press and talent was great. Unfortunately there was nobody from the event organizers to tell us where to sit or provide assigned areas for us to do our jobs. We were able to determined one room for photographers and one for video and press room/reporters/writers. Also presenters, performers and winners did not show up to the photo or press room. Some of them only walked the red carpet where some of us were excluded.
Congratulations to all the 2010 American Music Awards Winners and Nominees.
