The 41st Annual AMA Winners

The American Music Awards rocked the house Sunday Nov. 24, at the Nokia Theater in Los Angeles. The first ever AMA Icon award was presented to singer Rihanna, by her mother, Monica Barithwaite. ABC News describes the mother-daughter moment to be “emotional,” as Barithwaite went on to congratulate Rihanna’s iconic rise.

What’s an award show without a few performances? Salsa sensation Jennifer Lopez took the stage and performed in honor of Cuban singer, Celia Cruz. Miley Cyrus performed yet another memorable performance, singing her latest hit single “Wrecking Ball,” while sporting a cat covered two piece outfit and was accompanied by a singing cat projected on the screen behind her. Superstar girl group TLC reunited on stage paying tribute to late member, Left Eye, by performing “Waterfalls,” featuring Lil Mama.

The show wrapped up with an astonishing record win for Country pop sensation, Taylor Swift, taking home her third Artist of the Year AMA. Here is the complete list of winners from this year’s AMA’s.
