Your 2017 American Music Awards Total Recap

Well, that was fun. The 2017 American Music Awards were seriously good. With a stacked list of performers and super stiff competition in every category, there was not a dull moment. We seriously did not want it to all come to an end. There was just so many fun moments, like when Niall Horan, Shawn Mendes, Selena Gomez, Hailee Steinfeld and a few more of our faves took the stage. And also when Niall won Best New Artist! 

So many amazing moments, we wish we could just re-live them all over again right now. 

Everyone looked amazing when they hit the red carpet and this lot seriously nailed their looks:

Beautiful. FYI, we couldn’t fit all our favourites in here, so we totally played eenie, meenie, minie mo to choose.

Here’s a couple of the many amazing performances from the night:
