Music’s biggest artists stepped out in Los Angeles Sunday night for the 2019 American Music Awards, and what an evening it was. Packed with powerful performances, stunning outfits, and even a little romance, the night was full of fun. Host Ciara kicked off the show with an introduction to her new single, “Melanin,” and graced us with some killer dance moves to accompany it.
Along with Ciara’s upbeat choreography, we witnessed a steamy performance from Camila Cabello and Shawn Mendes, a throwback of Kesha’s fan-favorite song “Tik Tok,” and a fiery performance of Billie Eilish’s “All Good Girls Go to Hell.” Last, but certainly not least, in honor of her winning artist of the decade, fans jumped out of their seats for a medley of Taylor Swift’s greatest hits. Needless to say, the night was packed with smiling faces.
