In addition to snagging four awards and tying with Camila CabelloTaylor Swift opened the show with her first AMA performance in 3 years, won Artist of The Year and became the most decorated woman in AMA history—breaking Whitney Houston’s record. Although a hard act to follow, Tracee Ellis Ross was up for the challenge and wowed the crowd with dance moves to songs like “This is America” and “Bodak Yellow” while Evan Ross and wife Ashlee Simpson-Ross cheered her on.

Cardi B lit up the awards stage with her first fiery performance since giving birth and walked away with three awards—tying with Country singer Kane Brown. Post Malone passed a glass of wine to a friend so he could receive two awards including Favorite Pop/Rock and Favorite Album Rap/Hip-Hop. Ciara ‘leveled up’ while Missy Elliott’s ‘Funky White Sister’ was spotted in the audience. Mariah Carey performed her new song “With You” for the first time, and Jennifer Lopez showed us why she’s “Limitless” during her highly-anticipated performance. Panic At The Disco gave an outstanding ode to Queen, and Gladys Knight, Donnie McClurkin, Ledisi, Cece Winans and Mary Mary brought down the house with a soulful gospel tribute to “Queen of Soul,” Aretha Franklin. Seriously, what a night!
