The 2009 American Music Awards
Kate Hudson and Nicole Kidman
Kate Hudson and Nicole Kidman were among the famous fans who witnessed the thrills, chills and Jennifer Lopez taking a spill at the 2009 American Music Awards, held at L.A.'s Nokia Theater. Although the night was all about the music, the Nine co-stars proved they're leading ladies on any red carpet, with Kidman showing off a lacy one-shoulder Balenciaga gown and Hudson daring to bare some skin in a silver sequined dress.

Selena Gomez and Demi Lovato
Naming the designer of her sequined cocktail dress proved to be a bit of a tongue twister for Selena Gomez, who caught up with pal Demi Lovato backstage. "It's, like, a three-page long name!" said Gomez. "It's Talbot Runhof." Though the tween queen had problems with the pronunciation, getting ready for the night proved far easier. "No fashion mishaps today, thank goodness! Something normally happens. I went on a carpet once and my entire zipper ripped all the way down my back, so I had to wear my dad’s coat the rest of the night," Gomez said.
Lady GaGa and Adam Lambert
After stealing the spotlight on the red carpet in a dramatic Marchesa gown with laser cut details, Rihanna stole the show wrapped in a bandage jumpsuit and topped with spikes. "I'm getting back to work and it's crazier and busier than ever," said the pop princess, who performed a track from her latest album, R Rated. "Having my fans' support is amazing."
Marc Anthony and Jennifer Lopez
She took a tumble while performing her shoe-inspired single "Louboutins," but Jennifer Lopez made a quick recovery to strike the perfect pose with husband Marc Anthony backstage at the Nokia Theater.
Alicia Keys and Jay-Z
Teaming up with Alicia Keys for a duet of "Empire State of Mind," Jay-Z had plenty to smile about-the rap mogul took home the AMAs for Favorite Album and Favorite Male Artist.
