Last night, music stars shined at the 2019 American Music Awards in Los Angeles. The night wasn’t all about the awards, either. The real show happened on stage and on the red carpet. There was a slew of incredible performances by legendary singers including Toni Braxton, who sang “Un-break My Heart,” Shania Twain, who did a medley of her biggest hits, and Christina Aguilera, who performed “Fall On Me.”
The show kicked off stunningly with a performance by Selena Gomez, who hadn’t performed at the AMAs in two years. Gomez walked out on stage boldly and sang her first single of the year “Lose You To Love Me.” Yes, there was chatter of the quality of her singing on social media, but as we know, haters are gonna hate. Thankfully, however, she had her famous gal pals — Taylor Swift and Halsey — cheering her on in the front row as Gomez transitioned from her sullen song to her new dance single, “Look At Her Now.”
As far as the winners are concerned, our girl Cardi B took home Favorite Artist — Rap/Hip-Hop, Collaboration of the Year went to Camila Cabello and her man Shawn Mendes, Favorite Song — Rap/Hip-Hop went to Lil Nas X for his song “Old Town Road” with Billy Ray Cyrus. Beyoncé took home Favorite Female Artist — Soul/R&B award, and J Balvin won Favorite Artist— Latin, among many other winners.
Ciara, who served as host of the AMAs, had a total of nine outfit changes during the evening, but her red-carpet look was our top favorite. Speaking of, let’s get right to it. There were so many incredible fashion looks last night, and we loved that each star showed off where they are right now by expressing themselves so powerfully. Some, of course, were more unique than others, so here’s a roundup of the ones that shined the brightest.
