UPDATE: Now with full performances of Post Malone & Ozzy Osbourne, and the Green Day medley!
Not sure why these bloated award shows delay getting these performances online – because the longer they wait, the less likely anyone is going to care – but I’m having trouble finding full videos of anything from last night’s AMAs.
UPDATE: It’s not official video, but I found the full performance! It starts at the 1:48:00 mark.
Here’s half of Post & Ozzy’s “Take What You Want”

The performance definitely looks cool with all that fire. Ozzy’s taking it easy on that throne in the back, and he sounds pretty much identical to the studio recording – complete with the vocoder effect. I’ll update this with the full video if/when I find one.
Green Day, meanwhile, performed Dookie-era classic “Basket Case” to celebrate that album’s 25th anniversary along with their new track “Father Of All…”
As for actual awards, despite the AMAs umbrella of pop/rock awards, very few actual rock bands were included or nominated. Billie Eilish won Favorite Alternative/Rock artist over Imagine Dragons and Panic! At The Disco. Billie also won Favorite New Artist. Taylor Swift beat out Billie in the Favorite Female Artist and Favorite Album (Pop/Rock) categories. Panic! lost Favorite Duo/Group to BTS and Favorite Song to Halsey.
Other than that, everyone’s wondering why Post Malone said “I love grapes.”

And there’s your AMAs in a nutshell. I didn’t watch any of it either. I was at a movie theater FINALLY seeing Joker.
