The American Music Awards are an annual music awards ceremony, which originated in 1974.
It is considered to be one of the top 3 music award ceremonies in America, the others being the Grammy Awards and the Billboard Music Awards.
This year’s event was held on the night of the 24th November 2019 at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles, California.
The ceremony was hosted by the American R&B singer, Ciara.
There were several live musical performances on the night from popular artists such as Selena Gomez, Lizzo and Taylor Swift.
Many musical artists also won awards on the night such as Billie Eilish and Beyoncé for the ‘New Artist of the Year’ and ‘Favorite Female Artist – Soul/ R&B’ awards respectively.
Aside from the music and awards, there was also a strong focus on fashion.
