Shawn Mendes Wows With 'Wonder' Performance at American Music Awards

Taylor Swift voted artist of year for 6th time at American Music Awards

The singers released the track Friday and the AMAs, airing Sunday on ABC, marked the the first time they performed it together. She joked that A-list celebrities were in the audience, including Beyoncé (a cardboard cut-out of the singer appeared in a seat).

BTS kicked off the week with 2 wins and a massive performance at the 2020 American Music Awards.

However, she claimed that "Scooter's team wanted me to sign an ironclad NDA stating I would never say another word about Scooter Braun unless it was positive before we could even look at the financial records of BMLG".

And another Canadian - the Weeknd - is poised to have an all-star night: He's nominated for eight prizes and won the first televised award - favorite soul/R&B album for "After Hours".

The Weeknd was also a big victor on the night.

Kenny G joined the Weeknd for his performance, playing the sax in downtown Los Angeles as the Weeknd walked across a bridge singing "In Your Eyes".

According to the official American Music Awards website: The American Music Awards honors artists in multiple musical genres, including Pop/Rock, Alternative Rock, Country, Rap/Hip-Hop, Soul/R&B, Adult Contemporary, Contemporary Inspirational, Latin, EDM and Soundtrack, alongside awards for New Artist of the Year, Collaboration of the Year, Tour of the Year, Video of the Year, Favorite Song and Artist of the Year. Other nominees include Bieber, Taylor Swift and Post Malone. They won both "Favorite Duo or Group - Pop/Rock" as well as "Favorite Social Artist".

She went on, "Except, I don't have to do the cross over because we are the cross over". Among the performers will be legendary hip-hop/R&B group, Bell Biv DeVoe and rapper Nelly who each will sing medleys of their hits. "And I dedicate this award to all of our immigrant workers in this pandemic; the students and immigrant families".

Nominees for the AMAs were based on streaming, album and digital sales, radio airplay and social activity, and reflect the time period of September 27, 2019, through September 24, 2020.
