Gigi Hadid, Selena Gomez, Lady Gaga, and more arrive at the 2016 American Music Awards held at Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles.
The 2016 American Music Awards just wrapped a few minutes ago, with another celebrity-packed evening now in the rear. This year’s ceremony was filled with plenty of performances and poorly executed banter, but that’s to be expected from this type of show. Hosts Jay Pharoah and Gigi Hadid wasted no time in setting up Donald Trump digs, which the audience seemed to nervously laugh at.
The big winner of the evening was Justin Bieber, who collected four trophies of the night, including Video Of The Year. Rihanna and Drake both collected three trophies, thanks in part to their collaborative single “Work.” The hip-hop star started out as the top nominee of the night, coming in with a record-breaking 13 nods.
Performance-wise, the 2016 AMAs brought the star power, though it’s not likely that many of them will be remembered years from now. Showings from the likes of Shawn Mendes, The Chainsmokers with Halsey and Lady Gaga were all respectable, while bigger performances by Fifth Harmony and The Weeknd seemed to have a lot more going on and brought the production values. Thankfully, there weren’t any performances that stood out as misses…just some of the presentations.
