Adam Lambert Pictures: American Music Awards 2011 Red Carpet Photos, Pics

Adam Lambert Pictures: Adam Lambert arrives on the red carpet at the 2011 American Music Awards held at Nokia Theatre L.A. Live on November 20, 2011 in Los Angeles, California.

The American Music Awards were created by Dick Clark in 1973 to compete with the Grammys after the move of that year's show to Nashville, Tennessee led to CBS picking up the Grammy telecasts after its first two in 1971 and 1972 were broadcast on ABC. Michael Jackson and Donny Osmond co-hosted the first AMAs show with Rodney Allen Rippy and Ricky Segall in 1974.

Adam Lambert and Boyfriend Sauli Koskinen Pictures: American Idol 2011 Finale Photos, Pics

Adam Lambert and Sauli Koskinen Pictures: Adam Lambert and Sauli Koskinen arrives on the red carpet at the 2011 "American Idol" finale held at Nokia Theatre L.A. Live on May 25, 2011 in Los Angeles, California.

Scotty McCreery won the 2011 "American Idol" finale over fellow finalist Lauren Alaina. He's the fourth male in a row to win the Fox singing competition, with 2007's Jordin Sparks the last female "Idol."

"I never in my wildest dreams," said McCreery, a 17-year-old with a strikingly deep, old-soul voice that contrasts with his youth. "I've got to thank the Lord first ... he got me here."
