The 47th annual American Music Awards (AMAs) took place last night at the Microsoft Theatre in Los Angeles, California.
Artists get nominated under a few different AMA categories based on their contribution and the rest is left to the public vote.
Briefly.co.za learnt that the AMAs went down with a bang. Taylor Swift stole the show as she received a whopping six awards, making her the artist with the most AMA wins ever - she was also named the Artist of the Decade!
Ciara was the stunning ''hostess with the mostest while Taylor Swift, Bille Eilish, Shania Twain and a few other lit artists provided the entertainment for the evening.
