They don't call it Music's Hottest Night for nothing!

The 2021 American Music Awards aired live from the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles on Sunday, Nov. 21. Cardi B made her hosting debut and served as emcee throughout the evening.

In terms of the nominees, Olivia Rodrigo led the list of contenders with seven nods and The Weeknd trailed closely behind with six. They were both nominated for the top prize of Artist of the Year along with Ariana Grande, BTS, Drake and Taylor Swift, and BTS won the award. Bad Bunny, Doja Cat and GIVĒON then followed with three nominations each.

And don't forget about the red-carpet fashion and the star-studded lineup of performers.

Rodrigo, BTS, Bad Bunny, Jennifer Lopez, Chlöe, Machine Gun Kelly, Carrie Underwood, Jason Aldean, Kane Brown, New Edition, New Kids on the Block, Coldplay and Mickey Guyton are just a few of the artists who rocked out on the stage.
