2014 American Music Awards: Winners + Performances!

Last night (November 23), the 2014 American Music Awards took place at the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles. The big winner of the night was surprise surprise, One Direction! The group took home the awards for Artist of the Year, Favorite Pop/Rock Band/Duo/Group, and Favorite Pop/Rock Album for Midnight Memories. Iggy Azalea won two awards and Taylor Swift was honored with the first ever Dick Clark Award for Excellence. The evening was also filled with some decent performances but to sum it up: Taylor served theater realness, Ariana Grande sang me to sleep, Lorde hopped around like a monkey, Charli XCX impressed and undressed, Pitbull was aggressive, Fergie lived, Sam Smith and Selena Gomez made me sad, Nicki Minaj kept it cute and sophisticated, and lastly, Jennifer Lopez mopped the floor with everyone’s wigs.
