AMERICAN MUSIC AWARDS RECAP

Written by on November 23, 2020

Justin Bieber kicked off last last night’s American Music Awards with a stripped down performance before picking up 3 awards himself.

Biebs then joined Shawn Mendes on their new song “Monster.”

Bieber, Taylor Swift, Dan + Shay, and The Weeknd tied for the most awards, receiving 3 each. Cardi B became the first artist in history to win Favorite Song in the Rap/Hip Hop category at the AMAs twice! If we’re being honest, we were watching more for the performances than the awards so on to the entertainment!

Taraji P. Henson hosted the AMAs and was quite funny, as expected. She also did an epic dance medley before her monologue that we did not see coming!

Billie Eilish debuted her new song, “I think Therefore I Am”

The Weeknd shut down part of L.A. for his performance with Kenny G!

Jennifer Lopez and Maluma Performed ‘Pa’ Ti’ and ‘Lonely’

And, of course, we gotta show ya Megan Thee Stallion’s “Body”

And finally, Styles is gonna need Dua Lipa’s dress 😉

You can watch the full show HERE or on Hulu.
