Top moments at the 2017 AMA’s

From Selena Gomez’s debut of her platinum gold locks to Pink’s hilarious reaction to Christina Aguilera’s Whitney Houston tribute, here are the top 10 dish worthy moments of the 2017 American Music Awards.

The 2017 American Music Awards premiered last night on Sunday November 19, 2017 at the Microsoft Theatre in Los Angeles, California.

Tracee Ellis Ross, daughter of Diana Ross, graces the night in extraordinary fashion choices and hosts the 45th annual AMA’s.

Take a look at what went down that night:

1. Jamie Foxx and his daughter Corrine open up the AMA’s with a speech to first responders and tragedy victims.

2. Pop icons Pink and Kelly Clarkson’s powerful performance in ‘Everybody Hurts’ as a response to Foxx and his daughters opening speech.

3. Selena Gomez debut’s edgy new look with platinum blonde hair.

4. Pink’s cringe-y reaction to Christina Aguilera’s tribute song to Whitney Houston.

5. Diana Ross receiving the Lifetime Achievement Award.

6. K-Pop band BTS blows the stage with their debut US performance of their hit single ‘DNA.’ The South Korean boy-band has a bigger following in the Western world than it does back in Korea.

7. Selena Gomez performs first song of the year ‘Wolves’ with Marshmellow. For the whole of 2017, Gomez was out of the spotlight due to health problems, but that didn’t stop her from absolutely killing her first performance.

8. Shawn Mendes receives award for Favourite Artist Adult Contemporary. This makes Mendes the 3rd person under the age of 20 to win this award—an impressive feat!

9. Demi Lovato’s rigid and stoic first appearance was a message to her powerful performance that even under hate, you too can rise above it.

10. Bruno Mars steals the show by taking home 7 awards from the night!

Until next year!
