The 2020 AMAs (opens in new tab) took place last night and like always, some of the biggest names in music were in attendance to celebrate and honor their achievements of the year.
The star-studded ceremony was hosted by none other than Taraji P. Henson, who did an amazing job in between the acceptance speeches and incredible live performances.
The actress kicked off the night by performing a dance routine with a sea of backup dancers to huge TikTok favorites like ‘Savage’ and ‘WAP’, which personally, was one of our favourite moments of the night, before the heavy hitters in music took to the stage.
From The Weeknd, who showed up with a bruised up face (opens in new tab), to Justin Bieber who performed a soulful version of his latest track ‘Monster’ with Shawn Mendes before moving onto play ‘Lonely’ and ‘Holy' with Chance the Rapper, there were plenty of highlights throughout the night.
Jennifer Lopez also took to the stage with Maluma for the debut performance of their new song ‘Pa' Ti’ - a performance that viewers on Twitter insisted was a copy of Beyonce and Jay-Z’s famous ‘Drunk in Love’ Grammys performance. Meanwhile Megan thee Stallion, who dropped her debut album and a brand new collection with Fashion Nova on Friday (opens in new tab), stole the show with an electric performance of her new track ‘Body’, which actually features Taraji P Henson in the music video alongside other familiar faces like Jordyn Woods.
It’s safe to say there was a lot of excitement to take in from the night, so to make sure you haven’t missed any of the highlights, here are some of the best performances from the 202 AMAs.
Listen... whatever you think of @JustinBieber, you need to at least respect him. He grew up in the limelight, hit rock bottom, crawled his way back, and made you fall in love with his music once again. #AMAs #Lonely pic.twitter.com/jhyL5B77lLNovember 23, 2020
