This year, THE AMERICAN MUSIC AWARDS, had performances done from 19 different celebrities. Such amount of performances had never ever been done on these awards. The producer of the show Orly Adelson told, "We have 19 performances, which we've never done before ... Every big artist this year said yes, and we wanted them all."

The arena was jam packed with all the stars, with performances by, Pink, Beyonce, Christina Aguilera, Kanye West, Jonas Brothers, New Kids On The Block, Coldplay, Leona Lewis, Alicia Keys, Sarah McLachlan, Mariah Carey, Taylor Swift, Annie Lenox etc.

Annie Lennox joins the hall of fame with some of the earlier singers who have recieved Award Of Merit. The award has been previously given to Elvis Presley, Michael Jackson, Paul McCartney and Whitney Houston. 

Annie Lennox performed on the stage, despite her on going treatment for the nerve. She had been diagnosed with a Impinged Nerve in August 2008, and she has been going through physiotherapy since then. Her performance on the stage was overwhelming and the crowd responded to her with standing feet.

Justin Timberlake presented her the award and voiced out: 
"The Award of Merit is being given tonight to an artist who means a lot to me personally. There are certain musicians that other musicians love, and she is one of those special artists, held in the highest regard by her peers. l love that she's always been on the cutting edge of fashion, she's always looked so so cool and taught us how to look cool. Then there's her humanitarian work. She's been an activist for just causes all over the world, mostly in silent ways that you've never even heard about. She does this from her heart, motivated purely by love."

Annie Lennox replied to Justin TimberLake's Speech:
"It's been an incredible journey - music, my friends, my accompaniment through my life, so much of my life. Much of that was with Dave Stewart, of the Eurythmics and it is very important that I say half of the award goes to Dave also. Thank you so much for this. I never thought that I would live to see the day that I could be 53-years-old, standing on the stage and so many people have inspired me in this experience and too many to mention."
