Trini Trent TV: 2015 American Music Awards Review


    Did you watch the 2015 American Music Awards and wonder, “Where are all the black people?” Well, you were not alone in those thoughts because I was also left guessing if they were barred from entering the venue.

    These were all the performers from last night’s show via Just Jared:

    Alessia Cara
    Shawn Mendes
    Gabi Wilson
    Francesco Yates
    Jennifer Lopez
    5 Seconds Of Summer
    One Direction
    Selena Gomez
    Nick Jonas
    Demi Lovato
    Alanis Morissette
    Carrie Underwood
    Walk the Moon
    Meghan Trainor
    Charlie Puth
    Gwen Stefani
    Macklemore & Ryan Lewis
    Ariana Grande
    The Weeknd
    Celine Dion
    Leon Bridges
    Justin Bieber
    Luke Bryan
    Karen Fairchild

    Try to spot the black people in the lineup, if you can. There is no rush. I will give you a moment.

    The answer is two – The Weeknd and Leon Bridges. That’s right, there were no rappers at the event except Macklemore and Ryan Lewis, and The Weeknd was the only person close to R&B.

    Country singers, however, dominated the lineup along with their counterparts in pop and rock. You know, because they really need another platform to showcase their music…as if they aren’t represented everywhere else…

    Watch me discuss the best and worst moments of the 2015 American Music Awards in Trini Trent TV. Vive la France!
