The year 2021 belongs to the music, and the 49th American Music Awards did the perfect happy ending on a high note. The show took place on November 21, 2021 a the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles. The AMA show honored the icons of the past while raising a glass to the music stars of the future. It also got a little bit crazy, thanks to the host, the one and only Cardi B.
The ‘WAP’ rapper was up for three AMAs herself. And was picked to steer the ceremony, the second female rapper to do so .The first being Queen Latifah, who hosted in 1995. This ensured the fans of music to be a lot of viral moments and highlight.
The AMAs also boasted a packed lineup of performers. Silk Sonic kicked off the show, and things just got better after that. BTS, Diplo, Olivia Rodrigo, Tyler, The Creator, Zoe Wees, Walker Hayers, and Jennifer Lopez were just a few of the stars hitting the stage. There was even a celebration of boy band history when New Edition teamed with New Kids On The Block.

AMA :House Full of Performances
The 31-years-old singer was nominated for three American Music Awards this year. Taylor loves the AMAs but she chose to skip this year. But her reason for not attending the event is she’s ‘taking a break’, after a very successful release of Red Album. Taylor has truly made her fans feel the nostalgia again with the re-recorded Red (Taylor’s Version) Album.
The house is filled with BTS and Coldplay! The two iconic groups posed for a group photo after singing their popular tune My Universe at the American Music Awards 2021, where they goofily made poses in their stage costumes! “The My Universe Crew,” Coldplay said on Instagram, tagging BTS and adding a ‘purple heart’ emoji next to it!
