AMAs – American Music Awards took place on Sunday where BTS won big; three prizes including artist of the year.

Apart from this the boy band also won the title of the best pop group for the third consecutive time and best pop song for their chart-topping dance anthem, Butter.

“This whole thing is a miracle,” said singer RM. “Seriously, we’ll never take this for granted.”

Moving forward, Taylor Swift won best female pop artist for the sixth time along with best pop album for Evermore. And because of these prizes, her total tally of AMAs reached 34, hence becoming the artist with the most wins.

While accepting the award on Sunday the singer described Evermore as the “adventurous, fun younger sister” to her lockdown album Folklore, which won album of the year at the Grammys in March.

Unlike most award shows, the winners of the American Music Awards are chosen entirely by fans’ votes.

What else happened?

The award show featured BTS performing twice – once with Coldplay for a pyrotechnically-assisted version of My Universe; before closing the show with a breathless rendition of Butter.

Rapper Meghan Thee Stallion was also a part of the performance but was not able to join the group due to “an unexpected personal matter”.

The Houston native still won three awards: favourite female hip-hop artist and favourite trending song for Body.

Furthermore, Olivia Rodrigo received the award for being the best new artist.  The host for the night, Cardi B, won best hip-hop song, for Up; while Doja Cat took home three trophies including best collaboration for Kiss Me More, her slinky pop duet with SZA.

Ed Sheeran was the sole British winner on the night and won best male pop artist.

Who else performed?

The show saw performances from Bad Bunny, plus Bruno Mars and Anderson Paak’s Silk Sonic. Jennifer Lopez performed On My Way, in a huge wedding dress.

Ageing boy bands New Kids On The Block and New Edition staged a “Battle of the Boston Bands”, featuring medleys of their greatest hits.

Meanwhile, Italy’s Måneskin became the first Eurovision winners to perform at the AMAs. The rock band played their cover of Frankie Valli’s Beggin’, which gave them a US top 20 hits earlier this year.
