AMERICAN MUSIC AWARDS 2017
November 19 | Los Angeles, California
Bruno Mars was a big winner at the recently held American Music Awards, with seven trophies delivered to his home. The 24K Magic artist may not have been at the awards ceremony to receive his awards as he is currently on tour, but that didn’t stop him from bagging the Artist of the Year, Video of the Year, Favorite Male Artist and Favorite Album for both Pop/Rock and Soul/R&B categories, and Favorite Song for the Soul/R&B award.
Shawn Mendes, who was in Giorgio Armani that night, received the Favorite Adult Contemporary Artist, Linkin Park got the Favorite Alternative Rock Artist nod, Niall Horan, in a Paul Smith suit and Louboutin oxfords, was awarded the New Artist of the Year, and Kendrick Lamar’s Damn. Album was named Favorite Hip-hop Album.
