american music awards, bts

Loud was the theme of the night for the 2021 American Music Awards host, rap superstar Cardi B. It was unclear whether she realized there was a microphone in her hand. Screaming during most of her time on stage, it was difficult to make out was she was actually saying. Luckily, Diplo and other presenters took over for most of the category and award announcements. 

BTS, Doja Cat and Megan Thee Stallion all topped the winners circle with three wins apiece. Missing in-person were superstars including Dua Lipa, Ariana Grande, Megan Thee Stallion and Taylor Swift who accepted via a pre-recorded video speech.

Multiple GRAMMY® Award winners Bruno Mars and Anderson.Paak, who just dropped their debut album as Silk Sonic, kicked off the night with an energetic opening performance of their recently released hit “Smokin Out The Window.”

It was a night of AMA debut performances, with Olivia Rodrigo taking the stage for a powerful performance of “Traitor,” the fourth single from her record-smashing album, “Sour.”

Pop megastars BTS joined legendary British band Coldplay for the world television premiere performance of “My Universe.”

Tyler, The Creator performed “Massa” off his sixth studio album, “Call Me If You Get Lost.”

This year’s new “My Hometown” segments included spectacular performances by Carrie Underwood and Jason Aldean and an epic “Battle of Boston” as iconic boy bands New Edition and New Kids On The Block shared the stage together for the very first time and had everyone on their feet.

Italian rock band and first-time AMA nominee Måneskin made their U.S. awards show debut when they performed their global No. 1 hit “Beggin.’”

Three-time AMA winner Jennifer Lopez delivered a magical performance of her newly released song “On My Way” from the soundtrack of her upcoming film, “Marry Me.”

Country music star Mickey Guyton wowed audiences with her performance of her newest single, “All American.”
