Fergie was looking quite fergalicious at the 2010 awards in a strapless, sparkly mini number that had an almost futuristic vibe. Work it!

Selena looked absolutely stunning (and took a step away from Disney Channel land) in this gold, backless Armani gown and Judith Leiber bag at the 2011 ceremony. Love!
At the 2006 event, Nicole kept it (relatively) simple in a beaded strapless dress after introducing performer (and her father!) Lionel Richie.
Mariah showed off all her curves at the 2005 ceremony, where she took home the R&B Favorite Female Artist Award.
Jessica looked super sleek in a one-shouldered black number at the 2010 awards. The gold collar necklace was the perfect touch.
Winning the Favorite Latin Artist Award at the 2010 awards, J.Lo worked it in a semi-sheer, embellished number by Zuhair Murad's for his Autumn / Winter 2011 Couture collection.
Talk about embellishment! This slinky dress had plenty of it at the 2010 awards. We’re thinking Christina might be one of the only people to pull this look off.
