In a wow-worthy night of winners’ speeches and performance from some of the music industry’s biggest names, including Katy Perry, Nicki Minaj, Justin Bieber and Jennifer Lopez, Taylor Swift was named Artist of the Year and Brit girl Adele won three trophies at the American Music Awards.
Taylor Swift has been doing no wrong of late, winning a whole host of awards, and taking the biggest accolade at the American Music Awards. And the country diva was a winner on the red carpet, too, collecting her award in a show-stopping glitter gown by Reem Acra.
Performing not once but twice, Jennifer Lopez went for an embellished lace look on the red carpet in a Zuhair Murad dress before changing into a leopard print Giambattista Valli gown to hit the stage.
Meanwhile, Katy Perry channeled a Japanese-inspired bandeau gown on the red carpet, swapping into custom-made Johnny Wujek gown to perform The One That Got Away.
And pop princess Selena Gomez went for vintage-style glam in a champagne satin Giorgio Armani gown, helped with her train by uber-cute beau Justin Bieber.
