Hosted in Los Angeles, the awards show, which was run with social distancing measures in place, had a star-studded line-up, with artists including Justin Bieber, Shawn Mendes, Katy Perry, and Megan Thee Stallion performing.
After a year of limited events due to the coronavirus pandemic, the celebs were all smiles as they walked the red carpet, with JLo flashing a grin as she posed in a glitzy sequinned number, looking stunning as always.
Before You Go hitmaker Lewis rocked a more casual look, throwing up a peace sign and displaying the AMAs logo, while Don’t Start Now singer Dua stunned in a bold ocean-themed dress, complementing it with gorgeous blue eye makeup.
Machine Gun Kelly and Megan Fox thrilled fans as they made their red carpet debut after they started dating earlier this year.

The Love Story hitmaker wasn’t there to accept her award, but had a very good excuse, after being introduced by host Taraji P Henson.
She told fans: ‘The reason I’m not there tonight is I’m actually recording all of my old music in the studio where we originally recorded it. So it’s been amazing and I can’t wait for you to hear it.’

The pop star went on: ‘This is a fan-voted award, which means so much to me.
‘You guys have been beyond wonderful all the years of my career, but especially this one, when we’ve been so far apart.
‘We haven’t been able to see each other in concert, but I still feel really connected to you through the music, your reaction to Folklore and all of the ways in which your imagination honored that album.’
Also winning big at the event were The Weeknd and Sorry hitmaker Justin.
