2009 American Music Awards: the red carpet arrivals
Kelly Clarkson sparkled in black with silver sequins, and Shakira made a splash in brilliant, skimpy yellow as stars from the music realm came out Sunday afternoon at L.A.'s Nokia Theater, heading into the 2009 American Music Awards.
Just a few names from the full slate of performances on tap: Jay-Z and Alicia Keys. Lady Gaga and Jennifer Lopez. Carrie Underwood and Chris Urban. Adam Lambert, Shakira and Rihanna.
Alas, no Taylor Swift. But hey, we've seen her a lot lately.
