2015 American Music Awards Winners and Losers

2015 American Music Awards Winners and Losers
In case some of you were too busy watching the WWE Survivor Series yesterday (I know I was), the 2015 American Music Awards celebrated the year in mainstream music… Just like the Grammys, the Billboard Music Awards and the always controversial MTV VMAs.

Like every awards ceremony, a lot of things happened at the AMAs, including Miss Piggy performing a cover of Adele’s ‘Hello’ as a promo for the upcoming The Muppets series, host Jennifer Lopez showing off her assets (yet again) in a dance routine to everyone else’s songs but her own, Celine Dion performing the obligatory tribute to the victims of the Paris Attacks following a short speech from Jared Leto, a capella group Pentatonix performing the Star Wars score (yes Ilija, you read that right), and ‘positive body image advocate’ Meghan Trainor & Charlie Puth casually making out on stage after their performance.

Now that I’ve given you that little recap of the celebrity antics at the AMAs, I’m sure you’re all dying to know if Taylor Swift won all six of her nominations or if Chris Brown is even worthy of an award – so here’s a list of who were the big winners (and losers) of the 2015 AMAs.
