American Music Awards: List Of Winners
From One Direction to Sam Smith, see who all won what at the 2014 AMAs.

No statues were handed over to Ariana Grande during last night’s American Music Awards, but she did spend quite a lot of time on stage performing both a medley of her Top 10 hits from this year and “Bang Bang,” her joint single with Jessie J and Nicki Minaj. Following that, Ari’s holiday single “Santa Tell Me” went on sale at midnight on the iTunes store.

Overall, it’s a cute, harmless stocking stuffer that ticks all the necessary boxes, in that there’s classic instrumentation, a hummable chorus and lyrics that reflect a mixture of the festive season with the possibility of heartbreak at the holidays. Added bonus: a choir of backing vocalists — or should we say Christmas carolers? —  pipe in at the end, giving the mid-tempo track quite a peak moment. Listen below.
