American Music Awards 2012 Winners and PSY – Gangnam Style 2 Legit 2 Quit Mashup video

Like millions of viewers I watched the 40th American Music Awards.   The show was full of entertainment with some surprises among the winners.  My favorite performance were by Pitpull, Pink, Carrie Underwood and the PSY & MC Hammer – Gangnam Style / 2 Legit 2 Quit Mashup. The Gangnam Style Mashup was phenomenal!

Justin Bieber won three American Music Awards: Favorite Pop/Rock Male Artist, Album and Artist of the Year.  Justin’s mentor, Usher also won an award for  Favorite Male Artist/ R&B Soul.

There were at least 4 hashtags I noticed online during the program.  One thing I learned with these awards is that it’s very important for television shows that are looking for Social Media Interaction to display a hashtag at the corner of the broadcast as there were way too many hashtags to follow the conversation online.
