American Music Awards 2016: See The Full List Of Winners
What an evening, folks.
The 2016 American Music Awards aired live tonight (November 20) at 8 p.m. ET on ABC. Hosted by Jay Pharoah and Gigi Hadid, the show boasted a slew of performances by the likes of Bruno Mars, Lady Gaga, Green Day, Sting and more. This roster alone made for quite an interesting night.
But what of this year’s venerable winners? Justin Bieber and Drake were the night’s biggest victors, grabbing four and three AMAs respectively. Not to mention, Selena Gomez took home the award for “Favorite Pop/Rock Female Artist” and gave a heartrending speech about her journey in the limelight thus far.
