We can pretty much always count on the American Music Awards to be epic, but tonight's show promises to top them all by going ABOVE AND BEYOND...even last year's craziness. How can it possibly stack up to Justin Bieber's 3 different outfit switchups (and hairstyles), or Nicki Minaj and Katy Perry's pink perfection on the carpet, you wonder? Well, this year marks the show's 40th anniversary, and let's just say they're goin' big— with 20 different performances and a sure-to-be killer red carpet turnout, including Bieber, Ke$ha, No Doubt, Carly Rae Jepsen, One Direction, and about a zillion other celebs on their way. We can't WAIT to see what they're wearing, and obviously you can count on us to style stalk the stars allllll night long. In fact, we've already started! We've just launched our 2012 AMA flipbook, which we'll be updating throughout night. So check it out here, and watch the show at 8/7CST on ABC!
