- From Miley Cyrus' giant cat to PSY's crazy mash-up with MC Hammer, check out the 10 most memorable AMAs performances ever.
Over the past 42 years, the American Music Awards have produced dozens of memorable performances, from the quiet grace of Madonna's duet with Babyface in 1995 to the controversial sexuality of Adam Lambert in 2009 to the historic collaboration of "We Are The World" in 1986. As we look forward to the 2014 American Music Awards on Sunday, Nov. 23, check out these 10 memorable moments in the show's history:
Adam Lambert - 'For Your Entertainment' 2009
The "American Idol" runner-up shocked the AMAs crowd with a racy rendition of "For Your Entertainment" in which he sang, "Can you handle what I'm about to do?" Some could not, as Lambert's performance, which included a sloppy kiss with a male guitarist and some choice S&M gear, sparked immediate controversy. The performance still stands as Lambert's most memorable awards show outing, although his career hasn't slowed down at all -- "Trespassing," his sophomore album, debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 in May 2012.
