American Music Awards Recap

Winning the night’s top award at the AMAs was British boy band One Direction, which took home the Artist of the Year trophy for the second year in a row. “It’s absolutely incredible to receive this award two years in a row. It’s a testament to how incredible our fans are,” Louis Tomlinson said. Liam Payne added, “We can’t believe we get to win awards like this and we are obviously going on a little break now to spend a little time with our families, obviously we want to thank our families.”

One Direction also won the Favorite Duo or Group Award.

Rapper Nicki Minaj had a good night, winning Favorite Artist – Rap/Hip-Hop and Favorite Album – Rap/ Hip-Hop for The Pinkprint.
