The 2022 American Music Awards are officially underway, marking the show’s 50th year of honoring fans’ favorite artists and acts.
Broadcast live on ABC, this year’s AMAs are being hosted by Wayne Brady from the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles.
Prior to any trophies being handed out, Bad Bunny led the pack with eight AMA nominations, including Artist of the Year. Beyoncé and Taylor Swift, this year’s most-nominated female artists, followed closely behind with six nods, as did Drake.
A number of non-televised awards were handed out in advance of the show’s official 8/7c start time, including three for Swift and two for Beyoncé.
Of course, there was never any question about the recipient of this year’s Icon Award: Lionel Richie, now the second music legend to receive this honor; Rihanna took home the first-ever Icon Award in 2012.
Read on for a complete list of this year’s AMA winners, which we’ll continue to update as they’re announced. When you’re done, drop a comment with your thoughts. Did any categories get it totally wrong?
