This year the AMAs were all about OMG moments. Hosted by SNL alum Jay Pharoah and supermodel Gigi Hadid, the annual night of music brought together some of the biggest stars in modern music.
From Bruno Mars, to Lady Gaga, to James Bay, the who’s who of every genre unified for some multiple show-stopping performances, killer speeches and funny moments. Of everything that happened last night, we rounded up all the moments that any one playing catch-up needs to watch — and everyone else needs to re-watch.
