Yeah, you saw will.i.am's Lego hat while you were in your living room chilling on the couch - but what did people on the scene at the Nokia Theatre in downtown Los Angeles see behind the scenes at the American Music Awards? Here, Billboard gives you the scoop on 10 things you didn't see on TV.

1. Olympic skater Johnny Weir, a judge on the upcoming show "Skating With the Stars," dished that contestant Vince Neil was a competitive ice skater when he was a kid. He added that none of the competitors on the show were "terrible" -- so no fun for you, skater haters.

2. New "Glee" guy Darren Criss said his favorite album of the year was Arcade Fire's "The Suburbs." "It makes me want to quit music," he says. "Like, how am I ever going to do something like that?"

3. Producer Sean Garrett is working with Beyonce on her next album, but wouldn't spill what kind of sound the pop star is planning for her next release. "She wants to keep it a surprise," he said.

4. Lance Bass skipped the side of the red carpet where the press was lined up, instead opting to run down and give high-fives to the side where the shipped-in fans were standing.

5. The last two people to dash down the red carpet after the show started at 5 p.m. Los Angeles time? Katy Perry and Nicki Minaj, two ladies who were obviously trying to be fashionably late. Literally.

6. Talking about the Black Eyed Peas' group dynamic, will.i.am said: "I don’t think we look like this as a group, we look at this like a family. If we were a group, we would have broken up by now ... but families stay together." As soon as he finished speaking, the rest of the Peas started fake crying.

7. Michael Buble on how he prepared to get married: "I took myself to lots of movies I didn't want to see."

8. Carrie Underwood, Eminem, Justin Bieber, Lady Gaga, Mercy Me and "Glee" won AMAs during the pre-show, thereby depriving the live audience of the most awkward medley of all time.

9. Mitchel Musso rolled up to the AMAs in a Mercedes Benz -- but forgot one thing: to get it washed. He says he'll be happy if Santa gives him a detailing job for Christmas.

10. Mike Posner made a direct appeal to Steve Jobs: He wants a new computer this holiday season, preferably the swank new MacBook Pro. His current computer has a virus.
