The American Music Awards were aired live on Sunday night this weekend and most of the popular and well-known names in the music industry managed to take the awards home.
At the Microsoft Theater in LA, Taraji P. Henson hosted the award show. In the event, all COVID-19 protocols were followed and the small audience got to see multiple live performances. This one of a kind event that happened during the pandemic was made enjoyable by the performances of Justin Bieber and Katy Perry. Justine Bieber performed on two of his hits “Holy” and “Lonely,” whereas Katy Perry performed for the first time after becoming a mom.
In the award show, the favorite female lead artist award was won by Becky G, whereas the new artist of the year award was given to Doja Cat.
The top prize of the show went to the most stunning and undefeated Taylor Swift for the sixth time as she won the Artist of the Year award. Not only this, Taylor Swift also won multiple awards including the music video of the year for “Cardigan” and the most favorite female pop artist. She also has made her name count in the list of the celebrities with most awards at the age of 32.
Taylor Swift was unable to attend the award ceremony despite winning numerous awards during the event. However, she virtually accepted all the awards from her studio. For not attending the award show, Swift said that she is rerecording her old music again in the studio where they were originally recorded. She also said that she is excited to announce the remake of her albums.
The albums she’s going to rerecord are “Fearless,” “Speak Now.” “Red,” and “1989.”
