The American Music Awards, sandwiched between the VMAs and GRAMMYs, provide a nice mid-season review of what’s popular right now. It’s less about legacies and more a celebration of top-played hits and boy, did they celebrate.
Taylor Swift and Justin Timberlake were forces to be reckoned with, receiving multiple awards each. Swift brought home Artist of the Year & Favorite Female Artist – Country & more while Timberlake’s remarkable comeback to the musical world awarded him Favorite Male Artist-Pop/Rock, Favorite Male Artist-Soul/R&B and other nods.
Internet memes also had a big night, with Miley Cyrus distracting folks with subdued red carpet outfit, later revealing an over-the-top cat-covered bikini while performing in front of a weeping & singing cat projection (we can’t even make this up.) Lady Gaga also made a big entrance, arriving on a human unicorn, because of course she did. It’s pretty clear this was merely a warm up for these two stunt Queens to push the limits even farther for the GRAMMYs in January.
Nickelodeon star Ariana Grande took home New Artist of the Year while last year’s nominees One Direction won Favorite Album-Pop/Rock for Take Me Home and the band itself won Favorite Band, Duo or Group-Pop/Rock, just in time for their new album, Midnight Memories, out today.
Finally, Rihanna received two statues, one for Favorite Female Artist-Soul/R&B in addition to the first-ever AMA Icon Award, presented by her own mother in the most heartwarming moment of the night.
Check out the full list of winners here and listen to all your favorites on the Music Unlimited service today!
