Cardi B, who hosted the 49th Annual American Music Awards, nearly stole the show presenting in various outfits throughout the night, turning the awards ceremony stage into a runway. The star was the perfect choice to host the AMAs.  

BTS, Doja Cat, and Megan Thee Stallion were the biggest winners of the night, taking away three wins each. K-Pop Stars BTS swept the pop categories again this year — winning Favorite Pop Song and Group, as well as the most coveted award — Artist of the Year. 

Megan Thee Stallion and Doja Cat won Favorite Artist and Album in Hip-Hop and R&B, respectively. Meg took home Favorite Trending Song for “Body,” while Doja won Collaboration of the Year with SZA for “Kiss Me More.” 

Despite not being nominated, Tyler, The Creator, took to the stage to perform “Massa” and wowed the audience with one of the best numbers of the night.


Although Olivia Rodrigo received seven nominations, the newfound pop star took home one win for New Artist of the Year. The Favorite Male and Female Pop Artist win went to Ed Sheeran and Taylor Swift, with Swift also taking Female Pop Album for “evermore.” The wins don't stop there, "All Too Well (Taylor's Version)" lands at number one on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.
