ICYMI: Nicki Minaj And The Weekend Dominate R&B And Hip-Hop At The 2015 AMAs


Last night (November 22), the American Music Awards attracted many of the music industry’s elite.

Just in case you weren’t able to tune in with the rest of the nation, a lot of memorable moments went down. While stars like Zendaya, Ciara, Christina Milian, Karreuche Tran and more hit the red carpet in stunning looks, J.Lo commanded the stage as the night’s host. After opening the show with a pretty epic dance number to the most popular songs of the year, J.Lo turned the attention to the reason everyone was there: the music. Many of the audience enjoyed performances by Justin Bieber, Demi Lovato, and The Weeknd, but only a few snagged bragging rights for the rest of the year.

From the Favorite Hip Hop/Rap Artist, to Best R&B/Soul album, her are the celebrities who won big on stage at the 2015 American Music Awards.
