A look back

The AMAs peppered the commercial break segues with looks back at past performances. For the "AMA Divas" montage, we got Heather Morris and some artist on "Single Ladies"; a Cher so blonde she's going to give us nightmares, but we love her anyway; Mariah Carey before she was crazy; Tina Turner rocking out (she can be our private dancer); Celine Dion in her Justin Bieber phase, Janet Jackson before she was crazy; Madonna in her geisha phase; and Whitney Houston before she was crazy. Awesome. --Andrea Reiher, Zap2itABC
