While Justin Bieber won Artist of the Year at last night's American Music Awards, the Black Eyed Peas proved themselves worthy of their Best Pop/Rock Group title as well. Their performance of "This Time (The Dirty Bit)" was ... something else.
Something else is the only way to put it.
There's no comparison to the flashy, glow-in-the-dark spectacle accompanying their new single, which borrows the chorus of the Dirty Dancing theme song, "(I've Had) The Time of My Life," as will.i.am and Fergie crooned to throughout.
It was the freestyle dance moves and dancers wearing box-shaped headpieces that really stole the show, though. At the end, will.i.am plugged the band's new album, saying, "November 30, The Beginning. Welcome to the future!"
Bring it on. Watch their performance after the jump!
