Washington [US], November 23 (ANI): The 2020 American Music Awards (AMA) took place on Sunday night (local time), and like most things in 2020, the event was visibly affected by the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, host Taraji P. Henson was joined at Los Angeles' Microsoft Theater for the live ABC broadcast by a limited audience of invited guests in small groups from the same families, she said, and explained that they were socially distanced and tested for COVID-19. The small crowd, wearing masks in the balcony, was seen applauding and cheering throughout the show.
After accepting the award for favourite country song for their collaboration with Justin Bieber, '10,000 Hours,' Dan + Shay's Dan Smyers addressed the rough 2020, calling it "the toughest year ever."
Dan + Shay later won collaboration of the year for their work with Bieber, beating out high-profile nominees like Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion's hit single 'WAP,' Lady Gaga and Ariana Grande's 'Rain on Me' and Megan Thee Stallion featuring Beyonce's 'Savage Remix.'
And Henson introduced Lil Baby's performance of 'Emotionally Scarred' by saying that it highlights the difficulty of the current year.
The winner of the night's top prize, artist of the year, Taylor Swift, wasn't in attendance, as she explained in a video acceptance speech that she was busy re-recording her earlier albums in the studio where she originally recorded them. Swift also won two more awards: favourite music video for her 'Folklore' track 'cardigan' and favourite female pop/rock artist. With her wins, Swift breaks her own record twice: She's won the most awards in this category, with six, and has now racked up 32 AMA wins over the course of her career, the most wins by any artist.
