American Music Awards Highlights: The Good, The Bad And The Possibly Racist
There were winners, there were losers and there were awkward moments.
The American Music Awards took place Sunday night and, surprise surprise, Taylor Swift cleaned out. Of course, Swift wasn’t the only one who walked off with too many statuettes to carry (artist of the year, pop/rock female artist, country artist and country album for Red) but this does continue her impressive winning streak. The full list of winners was written up by USA Today.
Taylor Swift just keeps on winning.
Meanwhile, Justin Timberlake scored three (pop/rock male artist, R&B/soul male artist and R&B/soul album for The 20/20 Experience) while One Direction and the creative duo Macklemore & Ryan Lewis went home with two awards each. There were lots of proud moments for lots of artists, but like any award show these days, the AMAs didn’t manage to go by without some controversy.

JT looking sharp as usual. All the awards certainly add to the image.
