The 2019 American Music Awards were last night, and in case you couldn’t stay up all night to catch the show, here are some of the big winners on the night:
As anticipated, Taylor Swift stole the show, and picked up one of her 6 awards on the night by winning Artist of the Year. She edged Halsey, Post Malone, Ariana Grande & Drake.
Tight race, but Khalid beat Ella Mai’s self-titled album and Chris Brown’s “Indigo” in this category.
Another tight race (she was put against Ariana Grande’s “Thank U, Next” and Billie Eilish’s “When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?”)
Post Malone’s extremely popular album beat Championships and ASTROWORLD by Meek Mill and Travis Scott respectively as America’s favorite Rap/Hip-Hop album. Personally, I was shocked.
In another category full of potential winners (Luke Combs, Lil Nas X, Lizzo, Ella Mai), Billie Eilish came out on top.
Cardi B is continuing what’s proving to be another great year for her. She beat Post Malone and Drake to this one.
Thought Ariana Grande & Billie Eilish would beat Taylor? You thought wrong.
Up against Post Malone and Drake, America chose Khalid.
We all love the Jonas Brothers and Panic! at the Disco, but are they loved more than the 7 guys who make the K-Pop boy band we call BTS? The answer is no.
The cult classic beat “A Star is Born” and “Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse“.
You bet. The K-Pop boy band beat Shawn Mendes, Ariana Grande, Billie Eilish and EXO.
Shocking that Bruno managed to beat Chris Breezy and Khalid in this category.
The 17 year old phenomenon won this award over Panic! at the Disco and Imagine Dragons.
The Taylor Swift show continued. On this episode, she beat P!nk and Maroon 5.
No shockers here. “SICKO MODE” by Travis Scott and “Wow.” by Post Malone didn’t stand a chance.
Good win for Halsey. She was up against some stiff competition: “Old Town Road (Remix)“, “High Hopes“, “Sunflower“, and “Sucker“.
“Old Town Road (Remix)”, “Without Me”, “bad guy”, “7 rings”. All babies to the Giant that is Taylor Swift.
“Juice” by Lizzo definitely wasn’t a competitor for Khalid here. Maybe Ella Mai’s “Trip” stood a chance, but Khalid walked away with this one.
The smiley-faced masked DJ beat The Chainsmokers and Avicii (MHSRIP).
Really tight category this one. Personally thought Lil Nas X would tak it home, but it is what it is. Other nominees: “Sunflower“, “Happier“, “Shallow“.
Yes. America still loves boy bands. Especially K-Pop ones. Elton John, Ariana Grande, P!nk, and even Ed Sheeran couldn’t take this away from our seven Korean superstars.
America still loves Queen Bey.
Thought this award had Bad Bunny written all over it, but Mr. Balvin managed to edge both Bunny and Ozuna.
What better way to round up this post than with Taylor Swift winning ANOTHER award? Take that, Scooter Braun.
