The 50th American Music Awards (AMAs) are premiering tonight from the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles. It’s the time of the year where music artists are recognized as well as their albums. Airing at 8pm ET on ABC, Wayne Brady is hosting. There are four new category options for awards: Favorite Afrobeats Artist, Favorite K-pop Artist, Favorite Rock Song, and Favorite Rock Album.
Taylor Swift, who’s ticket sales broke Ticketmaster a few days ago and Beyonce are the two most nominated female artists, Måneskin and Imagine Dragons are up for the most nominations for groups, and Bad Bunny is the most nominated artist. Carrie Underwood, Wizkid, and Anitta are a few of the artists that will be performing. And Jimmie Allen, Liza Koshy, Sheryl Lee Ralph, Meghan Trainor, and Kelly Rowland will be presenting.
The red carpet looks are stunning and have always been for the AMAs. It was Christina Aguilera in 2000 who introduced belly tops, Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake that wore the famous denim outfits in 2001, Taylor Swift wore the silver turtleneck mini dress, and Cardi B showed up to the 2021 AMA red carpet wearing Schiparelli gold mask, with giant gold earrings, a black veil, and a long black dress.
