The 2020 American Music Awards Winners and Highlights

The votes are in...

The American Music Awards went down in the City of Angels on Sunday evening for the last big awards season for 2020, hosted by Taraji. P Henson.

The night kicked off with a very reflective set from Justin Bieber, who performed his new single Lonely and Holy, and was then joined onstage by Shawn Mendes to croon their brand-new collaboration, Monster

Taylor Swift won the night’s biggest award, Favourite Artist of the Year, (third year running)K along with Fave Music Video for Cardigan, and Fave Female Artist… and confirmed she was in the process of re-recording her first six albums, which is why she wasn’t able to attend the awards show.


Favourite Male Pop Artist went to Justin Bieber. With Fave Pop Album going to Harry Styles.

Doja Cat won New Artist of the Year and Fave Female R&B Artist.

And Lady Gaga picked up an AMA for Favourite EDM Artist. 

One of the standout performances of the night was from a toned-down Katy Perry, who teamed up with Darius Rucker to perform her new single - Only Love - which she dedicated to her Father - softly starting with an old Hymn - As the Deer Pants for the Water. 
 


Favourite Male R&B Artist, Song and Album went to The Weeknd, who dedicated his big award (and inspiration) to Prince.



He also gave an epic outdoor performance shutting down the streets of LA - complete with fireworks and Kenny G!!


Phew. What an awards night...
