American Idols On Top at the American Music Awards

I guess it makes sense that American Idol favorites Chris Daughtry and Carrie Underwood came out on top at last night's American Music Awards, considering the fans were the ones that voted, but it still amazes me that these people were rocketed to stardom just by taking a chance and trying out for a reality show. "This is one heck of a night," Carries said accepting the award for favorite country album. She also won favorite country female artist and an audience text-in award for favorite artist.

"Wow. I can't believe we're in the category with Justin Timberlake and Linkin Park. It's pretty awesome," said my love, Chris, the hottest bald guy EVER. Chris and his band, Daughtry, also took home three big ones, favorite pop-rock album, breakthrough artist and adult contemporary artist. Even Idol favorites Kellie Pickler and Jordin Sparks made an impact, dancing the Souljaboy dance with host Jimmy Kimmel in the opening number. Aside from the less-than-stellar moves on Kellie's part, I'd have to say, the night was a complete success for Simon Cowell's peeps.
