American Music Awards performer Katy Perry won a special achievement award Sunday night for making female pop star history by having five number one singles come off one album. She also gets an award from us (how exciting for her!) for being the worst dressed on stage at the AMAs. (Find out who was best dressed, and get a full AMAs fashion rewind here!) We’re sorry, but….no. Just, no to that whole look. We did like her pink guitar, though, and the fact that her performance of “One That Got Away” wasn’t a complete sideshow routine. We’re not even a fan of the song, but it was nice to see Perry try something approaching real music, and not just offer us a bunch of pyrotechnics and dozens of scantily clad, sex-crazed back-up dancers.
