The star-studded performance line-up included Bruno Mars, Lady Gaga, Justin Bieber and Ariana Grande. The AMAs which were hosted by model Gigi Hadid and comedian Jay Pharoah started off with an electrifying performance by DJ Khaled alongside August Alsina, Nicki Minaj, Rick Ross and Future performing “Do You Mind.”

Selena Gomez - American Music Awards 2016

The show had some highlights, Lady Gaga’s country-themed performance, which came as a surprise to many as the singer took to the stage with a guitar and a stool singing “Million Reasons” from her latest album Joanne. Green Day’s chant against the KKK and Trump was a little awkward as the band took to the stage to perform “Bang Bang” from their latest album, Revolution Radio. The biggest highlight, of course, was Selena Gomez’s acceptance speech where she shared her deepest thoughts, “I’m not trying to get validation, nor do I need it anymore,” Gomez said proudly.
