The American Music Awards was on last night and it was such a joke that we're just gonna have to focus on the positives. And what's one positive of any awards show? Yup, the girls, sans Lady Gaga again for this one (we'll start including her in these once she starts dressing like a human). Fortunately, a consistent theme of sexy girls in minis kept us on the channel, including Alicia Keys in a teasing blue Armani dress. So, you decided the hottest girl at the 2009 VMAs, now it's time to choose who takes the top spot for the AMAs. See our picks for the 10 sexiest AMA women and cast your vote below...

carrieunderwood3

NAME: Carrie Underwood
COMPLEX SAYS: Check out this cute lil' southern belle outfit on the same girl who sang about takin' a Louisville Slugger to a dude's ride. Fiery and cute, call it a perfect storm.

rihanna3

NAME: Rihanna
COMPLEX SAYS:This only proves Rihanna can hold down in anything, including an outfit that looks like scraps from a kid's art project that she later performed in. This ensemble was her more bring-me-home-to-mom choice.

leonalewis

NAME: Leona Lewis
COMPLEX SAYS: Holy Leona, Batman!

kristenbell2

NAME: Kristen Bell
COMPLEX SAYS:All white-everything. We'd co-sign anything that requires Kristen Bell to show just a lil' more skin, even if it's a bit on the pale side.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

aliciakeys

NAME: Alicia Keys
COMPLEX SAYS: We're not into playing favorites, but Ms. Keys is our choice for hottest of the night. Plus, you know she can hit them high notes.

nellyf

NAME: Nelly Furtado
COMPLEX SAYS: We missed her on the red carpet, but having her serenade us in this skin-tight black mini made up for it.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

kaylaewell

NAME: Kayla Ewell
COMPLEX SAYS: Apparently she's another chick, on another vampire show. Not familiar? Yeah, we weren't either until she broke necks on the red carpet.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

jennifer-lopez

NAME: Jennifer Lopez
COMPLEX SAYS: So what if her performance was kind of an epic fail? That doesn't mean JLO isn't still hot. And come on, she fell on her ass and bounced right back up. Literally.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

sofiavergara

NAME: Sofia Vergara
COMPLEX SAYS: Sofia Vergara keeps it classy and leaves the mini dresses to the young'ns. And that accent? Shhhhesh.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

shakira

NAME: Shakira
COMPLEX SAYS:We're not sure if "knuckle-biting" is a sufficient word to convey just how we feel about her in this dress.
