American Music Awards – og vinderne er...

American Music Awards – og vinderne er...

I aftes afholdtes det årlige awardshow American Music Awards. Taylor Swift blev, igen, den helt store vinder ved festlighederne.

American Music Awards adskiller sig fra de fleste andre awardshows på den måde, at det er "almindelige" mennesker, som har retten til at bestemme vinderne. På den måde bypasser man den vanlige jury, og musikerne selv sætter stor pris på at priserne kommer fra deres fans.

Taylor Swift vandt imponerende seks priser, blandt andet for "Artist of The Year" og "Favourite Music Video" for den farvestrålende billedside til "You Need to Calm Down". Mere bemærkelsesværdigt er det dog, at "TayTay" også tog den specielle pris for "Artist of The Decade", til hvilken hun fik overrakt et trofæ af selveste Carole King. 

Khalid kan sætte hele tre priser på kaminhylden. Prisen for "Favourite Male Artist" gik til netop Khalid, men også "Favourite Album – Soul/r&b" og "Favourite Song – Soul/r&b" kan Khalid med henholdsvis Free Spirit og "Talk" sætte flueben ved.

En anden, måske lidt overraskende, stor vinder ved showet var sydkoreanske BTS. Gruppen er på hele syv medlemmer, og BTS er også kendt som Bangtan Boys. Boybandet hev priserne hjem i kategorierne "Tour of The Year", "Favourite Duo or Group" og "Favourite Social Artist".
