The American Music Awards, or AMAs, went down last night and the reason we love this show so much is because it’s all fan-voted. We the people get our say!

Weird choice for hosts though, model Gigi Hadid and SNL Alum and comedian Jay Pharoah, who actually did pretty good!

The ’90s were in the house last night with performances from Green Day to Sting, who was presented with the Merit Award by actor, Robert Downey, Jr. and performed a medley of his hits throughout the years. Very cool.

There were lots of great performances at the AMAs: Niall Horan, Maroon 5 and Kendrick Lamar, James Bay, Fifth Harmony, Lady Gaga, DJ Khaled, John Legend, Bruno Mars, Shawn Mendes, Twenty One Pilots, The Weeknd and Justin Bieber (sort of), special duets from The Chainsmokers and Halsey, Ariana Grande and Nicki Minaj.

Our favorite was the guy who opened the show, BRUNO MARS, performing “24K Magic.”
