American Music Awards Highlights

The 44th Annual American Music Awards has been concluded and people are still clamoring about it. And why not? With lots of memorable moments and performances, it’s definitely one of the best yet. If you’ve missed it, here are some of the moments definitely worth mentioning:

Bruno Mars Opening the Show


Yup, it’s Mr. Mars kicking things off with his new song “24K Magic”. The crowd went wild with his singing sav·oir faire and his even smoother dancing skills. The performance is really something anyone would remember for years to come. Plus, it’s totally a great opening performance for the AMA as people in the crowd ate up everything Bruno Mars every moment of it!

A funny guy and a babe hosting the show? Why not? And they actually did a great job out there with Jay dishing out hysterical jokes after hysterical jokes. “Huh, I invented McDonalds — huh! I’m a better writer than Dr. Seuss, huh. I’m Jupiter’s third moon and Gargamel. The rest of you are Smurfs.” And Gigi—well, doing what she do best, looking as fine as ever with a “to-die-for” wardrobe such as the jaw-dropping, skin-tight red dress that she wore right at the beginning.

Fifth Harmony


The all-girls singing group lit up the stage with their killer of performance of “That’s My Girl”. Again, the crowd got up on their feet as the hot girls turned up the heat onstage, writhing and all over the stage, complete with flames and all that!

Ariana Grande and Nicki Minaj


Some say this might have been the performance of the night. Although I’m sure that others would disagree, I really think this performance made the night special. Imagine Ari grinding away shirtless on the stage beside Nicki (who made some pretty hot moves too) on stage singing and rapping their heart’s out. If that ain’t sizzling, I don’t know what is.

Other Notable Performances

The Biebs singing “Let Me Love You”,  Green Day performing “Bang Bang”, Niall Horan’s mesmerizing performance of the hit song “This Town”, Chainsmokers featuring Travis Barker (Blink 182 drummer), and of course, the legendary Sting, performing on stage a medley of his hit songs: “I Can’t Stop Thinking About You”, “Message in a Bottle”, and “”Every Breath You Take.”

Fashion Icons?

Although, music is the always the main focus on awards such as these, I just can’t help but take notice of what the stars are wearing too. Here are some of my faves:

Bella Thorne in a smooth and shiny black suit/leather bra top/strappy sandals ensemble.
Gigi Hadid in a white lace off-the shoulder gown and silver choker.
Lady Gaga in an all-white suit with matching white hat.
Selena Gomez in a sweeping red scoop neck gown, adorned with glittering earrings.

The 44th American Music Awards is definitely one of the most spectacular shows to have hit television this year. And with how things are going, I’m not gonna be surprised that next year will even be more amazing. I certainly look forward to it, especially the unforgettable performances and of course, the glitz and glamour.
