It’s a wrap for the 2017 American Music Awards!

Hosted by Tracee Ellis Ross, the AMAs saw Bruno Mars off with a whopping total of 6 awards. American diva and legend Diana Ross was honored with the American Music Award for Lifetime Achievement.

Rock band Linkin Park took home the award for Favorite Artist – Alternative Rock, and it was both a special and overwhelming moment, given the absence of frontman Chester Bennington who passed away a few months back.


Luis Fonsi, Daddy Yankee, and Justin Bieber inevitably bagged the award for Collaboration of the Year and Favourite Song (Pop/Rock) for their hit song, “Despacito”.
