The 2014 American Music Awards is still being discussed about due to the performances from top artists like Iggy Azalea, Taylor Swift, Jennifer Lopez, Ariana Grande, Imagine Dragons, and many more.
Still, it has not impressed Black Eyed Peas lead star will.i.am. In spite of his own band’s member Fergie’s magnificent performance at the 2014 American Music Awards, will.i.am told that music these days still sounds like that of 2000s.
Will.i.am, the Black Eyed Peas leader, saw the AMAs this year but failed to watch what was so entertaining and refreshing in the performances or even the tracks. According to reports, he told that nothing was like magnificent. He claimed that it has become tougher for a television awards program to battle for attention these days because of the brand new technology. He thinks that with everyone hitting “refresh” quickly on their cell-phones and the tracks always playing in background, the American Music Awards has to battle with thumb flipping channels.
The producer also told that none of the performances shown in the awards event were highly innovative or even novel. He stated those as so 2000s, like in the year 2003. Will.i.am’s opinions do not come as a huge surprise, as he always had talked about being forward looking. Once he stated that Black Eyed Peas have became a success story as they were trying to search what would be next commercial trend.
