American Music Awards 2014: Watch Lorde, Sam Smith, Taylor Swift and more

The American Music Awards carry about the same weight as the Teen Choice Awards. It's a night where we consistantly find ourselves asking: "Is he/she still famous?" and "People actually like Pitbull?" (We're looking at you, Lorde) Regardless, there are a handful of good performances hidden among some of the mess, and this year Lorde, Sam Smith, Taylor Swift and others provided some good entertainment.

Watch: Taylor Swift on “Jimmy Kimmel Live”

http://youtu.be/9_sBxqyX_co Taylor Swift's days of being a country star are long behind. The man-crusher has fully embraced her role as world pop starlet. Swift appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Thursday night to perform two tracks off of her forthcoming album, "1989." Swift impressed the Los Angeles crowd with an electrifying take of "Shake it Off" that included that viral saxophone and perfectly choreographed dance moves.
