Everything That Happened At The AMAs In 27 GIFs

While most award shows are awkward and underwhelming, the American Music Awards never fail to deliver.  Why?  Because they let the stars stick to what they do best: perform.

And if that’s not enough, everybody always looks hot.

But wait, why tell you what happened when I can show you what happened?  If a picture’s worth a thousand words, than a GIF most be worth a million, so get ready because this post is worth…a lot.

As with all awards shows, the AMAs began on the red carpet.  All of your favorite celebrities were there, including Selena Gomez, who looked dazzling in a red, sequined gown:
