6 Amazing Performances from the #AMAs2014

ama

ABC hosted three hours of non-stop, top-notch entertainment on Sunday evening at the American Music Awards show.

So. Much. Talent!

Every performer did such an amazing job that it was so hard to pick five favorites. So I chose six instead.

As usual, the ladies rocked our socks off with their chart topping hits. The guys did an okay job, but, girl power!

Here are my six favorite AMA 2014 perfomances:

1. Taylor Swift, “Blank Space”

Was that real fire?!

2. Sam Smith, “Only One” ft. ASAP Rocky

This song gets me every time! *sniffles*

3. Lorde, “Yellow Flicker Beat”

That lipstick smudge though!

4. Selena Gomez, “The Heart Wants What it Wants”

So emotional. Props for holding it together, girl.

5. Nicki Minaj ft. Skylar Grey, “Bed of Lies”

Beautiful ballad. Didn’t know she had it in her!

6. Jennifer Lopez “Booty” ft. Iggy Azalea

It wouldn’t have been much of a finale without the booty.

Lorde’s Birthday Wish and “Yellow Flicker Beat” Music Video

Today, Lorde turned 18!

Gosh, she’s so young.

Wondering what the singer wished for?

Less acne.

About 10 seconds into her big day, Lorde took to her Tumblr page, stating,

it’s midnight, and i’m all of ten seconds into being eighteen. the first thing that came into my head just now is that i thought i would have less acne at eighteen.. some things never change. lol. happy birthday me.

Girl, I feel your pain.

This isn’t the first time Lorde made a public statement about her acne problems.

In a comparison between two photos of the singer taken during a concert performance, Lorde took a stand for her imperfections.

“I find this curious — two photos from today, one edited so my skin is perfect and one real. remember flaws are ok :-)”

Lorde also has no shame in posting photos of her face covered in acne cream. She doesn’t try to hide her acne. She just wishes it weren’t there.

But I’m not gonna lie to you, girl. I’m 20 and I still have acne!

You just keep being you, and your fans see past your acne into your beautiful soul.

It also seems that Lorde likes to give on her birthday rather than receive.

The music video for The Hunger Games Mockingjay Part 1 soundtrack song “Yellow Flicker Beat” is finally here!

Woohoo!

Enjoy your day, Lorde!

And for the fans, enjoy her new music video for “Yellow Flicker Beat.”
