A Daily Guide to Notable Shows
Pitbull, who hosted the ceremony last year, returns to do it all again. Is he looking to become the Billy Crystal of the AMAs? Nah, he just wants to have a good time. ''It's the formal-informal awards show,'' he saysin other words, it's the Golden Globes to the Grammys' Oscars. ''They think outside the box, so you don't know what might happen...or what might not happen!'' What we do know is that there'll be performances from the likes of Sam Smith, Lorde, Fergie, and Mr. Worldwide himself. Beyond that, Pitbull says he's just hoping to become a better host: ''I could've had more fun last year. For example, when Taylor Swift came up, I gave her an award. But in my head, right after I gave the award I thought, 'Man, I should've ran off with the award just to mess with her a little bit!' So this year, I'm going to have a lot of fun.'' You're on notice, T-Swift.
Carrie must improvise in order to salvage her mission. But will she pick Second City or the Groundlings? The suspense is killing us.
