Stars Were Stuntin At The 2017 AMA’s, See The Recap -Tha Wire
The 2017 American Music Awards took place last night, live from the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles. The Boombox reports, the stars came out stuntin on the red carpet for music's big night. Below is a video recap on the night's biggest moments and performances. Black-ish TV star Tracee Ellis Ross, hosted the AMA's for the first time, and as an added bonus was able to give her mother a special award. Music legend, Diana Ross, was honored with the Lifetime Achievement Award. Ironically 31-years ago the music icon hosted the AMA's twice, in 1986 and 1987. She also took to the stage and, let everyone know at 73, she's still 'The Boss.'
Christina Aguilera was on hand to pay tribute to the late-great Whitney Houston, and the 25th anniversary of the iconic film, The Bodyguard. Judging from the memes trendy on social media, I'm gonna go out on a limb and say not everyone was impressed with Aguilera's "Whitney" performance.
After being dragged on the internet, Christina, clapped back with the following classy response.
Let us know your thoughts. In the meantime the big winner of the night was Bruno Mars. His 24K Magic album was No.1 album for eight consecutive weeks. Although he wasn't on hand to pick up the awards, Bruno won 7 of the 8 nominations leading the pack with the most awards. was the night's clear winner, dominating the win category off the strength of his popular 2016 album, 24K Magic. All in all, Bruno picked up awards for Favorite Artist of the Year, Favorite Male Artist Pop/Rock, Favorite Album Pop/Rock, Favorite Male Artist Soul/R&B, Favorite Album Soul/R&B, Video of the Year and Favorite Song Soul/R&B for "That's What I Like."
Drake and The Weeknd had five nods apiece, including a bid for Favorite Album. Drizzy copped the Favorite Artist Rap/Hip Hop trophy, while his Canadian counterpart walked away empty handed. DJ Khaled didn't win his usual category of Best Collaboration. This time around he scored a win on Favorite Rap/Hip Hop Song, for his track I’m The One. Last but not least, Kendrick Lamar took home the Favorite Rap/Hip Hop Album trophy for Damn. That's about it!
A big surprise was the fact that Rihanna didn't win anything. She got a nod for Favorite Female Artist - Pop/Rock, but lost to Lady Gaga and to Beyonce for Favorite Female R&B Artist. All isn't lost for RiRi though. The music diva took the AMA Favorite Album award for Anti last year, and this year she got it again at the iHeartRadio Music Awards.
