1D wins big at AMAs; Dion pays tribute to Paris victims.

One Direction may have debuted at No. 2 on the Billboard charts behind Justin Bieber, but they won the top award — artist of the year — at Sunday’s American Music Awards. Bieber, who won best collaboration with Diplo and Skrillex, closed the night with a medley of his hits, including “Sorry,” ”Where Are U Now” and “What Do You Mean.” Purple laser lights beamed from the stage as the singer danced and sang for the loud audience. Bieber’s performance wasn’t the only well-received one: Celine Dion paid tribute to the victims of the recent Paris attacks by singing Edith Piaf’s “Hymne à L’Amour” in French as some audience members cried.

Jared Leto, who introduced Dion, said his band 30 Seconds to Mars recently performed at the Bataclan, the Paris concert hall where 89 people were killed in the Nov. 13 attack. She encouraged her feverish fans to “find their voice.” “I want to just thank you, the fans, for allowing me to change and have a different voice every time I come back out (with a new album),” Minaj said. “And please find your voice and find your purpose before it’s too late. Love you.” Other encouraged their peers: Zendaya and Hailee Steinfeld danced excitedly as Selena Gomez performed onstage; Fifth Harmony and Rebel Wilson sang as Demi Lovato was in strong form with “Confident”; and Gomez sang as Grande performed “Focus” in a shimmery number.

Meghan Trainor and Charlie Puth’s performance got additional attention after the singers made out onstage after singing their song, “Marvin Gaye,” which features the lyrics: “Let’s Marvin Gaye and get it on.” Host Jennifer Lopez kicked off the AMAs in a dance routine that highlighted some of the year’s biggest hits like “Where Are U Now,” ”Anaconda,” ”Uptown Funk!” and “Hotline Bling.” She also impressively sang in almost a cappella form.
