Transcript Awards show salutes Brooks, Boyz and Brandy The 23rd annual American Music Awards show was full of surprises, but none was bigger than Garth Brooks' refusal of the award for Overall Artist of the Year. Brooks insisted that the award covered a wide variety of music, and that he could not accept it. He then left the award on the podium. Michael Jackson, who was not present, won the award for Pop/Rock Favorite Male Artist. Mariah Carey won Pop/Rock Favorite Female Artist, and she also won the same award in the Soul/R&B category. She gave an outstanding performance, kicking the show off with her double-platinum single, "Fantasy." Among the surprises, Pop/Rock Favorite Group went to the Eagles, along with Pop/Rock Favorite Album and Adult Contemporary Favorite Artist. Hootie & the Blowfish received Pop/Rock Favorite New Artist, the group's only award of the evening. In the Soul/R&B category, Luther Vandross achieved his "Impossible Dream" by winning Favorite Male Artist. Boyz II Men won both Favorite Group and Favorite Album. As predicted, Brandy received the award for Favorite New Artist in this category. Pearl Jam picked up Favorite Artist honors in both the Alternative and Hard Rock/Heavy Metal categories, but was not at the show. In the Country category. Garth Brooks took home awards for Favorite Male Artist and Favorite Album. Reba McEntire won Favorite Female Artist once again. Shania Twain gave a stellar performance and received the Favorite New Artist award. Alabama picked up Favorite Group. Another surprise was the Favorite Soundtrack award, given to The Lion King, over soundtracks to the films Dangerous Minds and Forrest Gump. However, it was not a surprise that Coolio was named Favorite Artist in the Rap/Hip Hop category. The Award of Merit was given to country star Tammy Wynette for her accomplishments, spanning four decades in music. A moving tribute to her, featuring country star Pam Tillis, gave a glimpse of the scope and depth of Wynette's fruitful career. Overall, the awards show was a bit of a snooz- er interspersed with some sweet moments. If this was the turnout for the American Music Awards, I dread seeing the always tedious Grammies. Lisa M.
