Tune in to the live-blog at It Happened Last Night at 8 pm ET/5 pm PT for Zap2it’s coverage of the 2009 AMAs. The Best Artist category is all over the map this year. The nominees are Eminem, Michael Jackson, Kings of Leon, Lady Gaga and Taylor Swift. Can the country princess or the first lady of weird/cool topple prohibitive favorite Michael Jackson?

However, we’re not nearly as excited about the awards as we are about the performances. Tonight’s performances include Whitney Houston, Carrie Underwood, Rihanna, Kelly Clarkson, Green Day, J-Lo, Lil’ Wayne, Keith Urban, Jay-Z, Mary J. Blige and Adam Lambert.

Should be fun, so be sure to check out our live-blog. The “Country Music Awards” live-blog was a big hit.
