On Sunday night at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles, the 50th annual American Music Awards were presented. Wayne Brady was the host of the ABC and Dick Clark productions show. Here's the complete list of AMAs 2022 winnersand nominees.
Taylor Swift, the reigning anti-hero of 2022, proudly accepted the honors for Artist of the Year and Favorite Pop Album, even though her album, 1989, was technically released in 2012.
It's evident that Red (Taylor's Version), her reworked version of what many believe to be her best work, has impressed fans just as much this year as the original did a decade ago.
She complimented her band and the actorswho play a troubled couple in the short film that accompanies the album, Sadie Sink (Stranger Things) and Dylan O'Brien (Teen Wolf). Clever decision since the music video won the evening's Favorite Music Video trophy.
The Favorite Pop Song award went to Harry Styles for "As It Was," which was a foregone conclusion given the song's 4,000 weeks reign atop the Billboard Hot 100.
Dove Cameron won New Artist of the Year, and she gave her trophy to the LGBT community. Machine Gun Kelly, dressed to the nines to accept his award for Favorite Rock Artist, was a sight to behold.
For his contributions to the genre of Afrobeats, Wizkid won the People's Choice Award. And the lovely Anitta was named Favorite Female Latin Artist. She not only won the award but also kind of won the night since she got the one and only Missy Elliott to perform her song "Lobby" at the ceremony.
Besides the band, Pink paid tribute to Olivia Newton-John, a singer and actress who passed away earlier this year. The audience was visibly affected when she screamed out "Hopelessly Devoted to You," her iconic song from Grease.
The evening's centerpiece, though, was a heartwarming ode to Icon Award recipient Lionel Richie. Stevie Wonder, a fellow Motown legend, and Lionel fan Charlie Puth jammed out to some of the R&B icon's biggest hits like "Hello," "Say You, Say Me," "All Night Long," and "Easy" with some lighthearted conversation in between songs.
On Sunday, November 20, at the American Music Awards, the superstar singer and songwriter Taylor Swift swept the evening, taking home six prizes, including the evening's biggest honor, artist of the year.
While there were no major surprises at the 2022 American Music Awards, there were a few showstoppers. The biggest fan-voted awards show in the world was held at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles, and it was hosted by Wayne Brady. The ceremony was broadcast live on ABC.
