10 things we learned from the American Music awards.

The “Anaconda” rapper, 32, stunned in a low-cut, cleavage-baring pink Michael Costello gown with side cutouts and ornate gold embellishments on the shoulders, sleeves, and midriff.Nicki Minaj is no stranger to a celebrity row, and she made her feelings clear as she appeared to throw shade at Jennifer Lopez during the American Music Awards last night. Jennifer, who was this year’s host of the annual bash, gave an incredible opening performance, as she rattled through a number of songs including a snippet of Nicki’s hit track Anaconda. This time, while giving away the speech, Minaj extended her list of people to thank and mentioned Lil Wayne, Drake, Chris Brown and “baby” Meek Mill.

Minaj took to Instagram during the show to share several photos of the two in their seats at the Microsoft Theater, including one of Mill staring unabashedly at her décolletage. It has also produced some of the best pop performances of recent times, from Whitney’s barnstorming medley at the 1994 ceremony to Michael Jackson’s barnstorming medley in 1993 and, of course, Lady Gaga’s barnstorming medley in 2009. The singers got into a war of words on Twitter after Nicki admitted she felt snubbed after only receiving three nominations ahead of the MTV Video Music Awards, writing: “If I was a different ‘kind’ of artist, Anaconda would be nominated for best choreo and vid of the year as well. Held in the mundane environs of LA’s Microsoft theatre and presented by an ageless Jennifer Lopez, Sunday night’s show featured 23 award-givings and 19 performances in three hours. During one of her noticeably low-key acceptance speeches on Sunday, she gave a shout-out to her “baby, Meek.” (At a concert earlier this year, she called him her “baby daddy,” sparking rumors that the two — who’ve been the subject of engagement rumors in the past — were expecting a child together.) After the ceremony, Minaj tweeted a photo of herself walking onstage to accept the Rap/Hip-Hop Artist award. “Thank u AMAs!!!!!” she captioned the pic.

But the most memorable moments involved an unnecessary snog and an even more unnecessary slice of a cappella nonsense. was officially the presenter of this year’s AMAs, but she was barely on screen during its three-hour duration. Maybe one of the men took your slot.” After Miley made it clear she didn’t side with Nicki and THAT VMAs-related Twitter rant against Taylor Swift, she then found herself in the same room as the rapper during the annual awards bash. And on winning her award at the event, Nicki took to the stage and immediately said: “This b***h had a lot to say about me the other day in the press, Miley what’s good?” Nicki Minaj waded into Zayn Malik’s Twitter row with Calvin Harris in August, appearing to take aim at the former One Direction singer with a very subtle move on the social media site. “Don’t give up on yourself no matter what,” Nicki said in her speech, reportedly referring to Lil Kim’s career. “This is for everyone in this room. She also put a lot of effort into the show’s opening seven minutes, crooning her way through a stripped back version of Waiting for Tonight before realising that no one wants to hear her sing (“Tonight is all about the music,” she said) and discarding the mic for a relentless dance assault on the year’s best songs (and Nicki Minaj’s Anaconda). I want to tell you to please make it your business to follow your dreams because one day you will look around and your dream will be gone and you will be mad at somebody.

It’s easy to take J-Lo for granted, but there are very few pop stars who still perform like she does, and it was clear from the rest of the night’s performances that dancing in time and with enthusiasm is fast going out of fashion. However, the evening’s most moving moment was a tribute to the victims of the Paris attacks by Celine Dion, who sang Edith Piaf’s Hymne à L’amour. Kim is a legend in this game,” the source said. “She’s the best who’s ever done it and Nicki should be thanking her lucky stars and her fake booty that Kim did it first! Following a new clip from Star Wars: The Force Awakens, set to premiere in the US this December, Pentatonix performed excerpts from the Star Wars soundtrack, composed by John Williams. She was a no-show (she’s currently on a break from her 1989 world tour, and could have been there in theory), and all of her categories were pointedly announced off camera.

Heavily hyped, the clip revealed little more about the film, consisting of footage of Rey and Finn – played by Daisy Ridley and John Boyega – running away from an explosion. Nicki was forced to hit back at her ex-boyfriend Safaree Samuels in July this year, after he alleged he was a ghostwriter for some songs on her album The Pinkprint.

Not only did former Singled Out host Jenny McCarthy present an award, but so did Paula Abdul and Donnie Wahlberg, before Clueless stars Alicia Silverstone and Jeremy Sisto introduced Gwen Stefani. The camera cut to Nicki Minaj – who won two awards – looking stony-faced at Lopez’s booty-shaking to Anaconda, but the rapper denied that she had been displeased by the performance.

Things got really 90s and angsty with the night’s token bizarre duet: Alanis Morissette and Demi Lovato scowling and prowling their way through the former’s scorned-woman anthem You Oughta Know. Lovato, who was three when the song first came out, gave it the requisite snarl, while Morissette squeezed out every last drop of anger, and provided the night’s one controversial moment when she failed to censor the song’s “fuck”. Perhaps in response to Swift’s usual award show behaviour – dancing about to other people’s performances like a poorly coordinated but instantly gif-able toddler – all pop stars must now be on high alert. Throughout the evening, the camera would cut to poor unsuspecting audience members so their reactions to other performers could be scrutinised and judged. While his soon-to-be-estranged bandmates stuck to the script vis-a-vis red carpet attire for men, Harry Styles sauntered into the show in a suit seemingly made from a pair of his grandma’s Laura Ashley curtains.

What Meghan Trainor and Charlie Puth did last night was so spectacularly uncomfortable that it managed to erase the awfulness of the song they’d just finished performing. A pop star changing her hairstyle isn’t news, necessarily, but in the case of Ariana Grande, it is the end of a ponytail-related saga that has gripped a nation. She then went on Facebook to have a bit of rant: “My real hair is back to brown and I wear extensions but I wear it in a ponytail because my actual hair is so broken that it looks absolutely ratchet and absurd when I let it down,” she said. “So as annoying as it is for y’all to have to look at the same hair style all the time … It’s even more difficult for me to have to wait forever for my natural hair to grow back and to have to wear more fake hair than every drag queen on earth combined.” Finally, while performing her new single Focus and winning Best Female Artist – Pop/Rock, Grande got to wear a different, non-ponytail hairstyle.

The 2015 AMAs wasn’t exactly jam packed with surprising moments, but Coldplay managed to cause a ripple of confusion during their performance of Adventure of a Lifetime. While the first half was fairly standard Coldplay – Chris Martin dressed like a paint-spattered student and dancing around like he needs a wee in front of some spinning colour wheels – the second half featured dancers dressed like chimps, giant bouncing beach balls and Martin doing yoga moves that would make Gwyneth Paltrow wince. Having mumbled his way through four albums’ worth of drug-fuelled bore&B, Canada’s the Weeknd saw the light and hooked up with Max Martin to make some proper pop songs on this year’s Beauty Behind the Madness. Even when accepting an award from Prince – a man who knows a thing or two about being effortlessly captivating – he didn’t seem overawed, allowing just the right amount of mystery to combine with some proper Michael Jackson-esque love-to-the-fans chat.

The only redeeming bit of this section of the show was when a slightly dazed Harrison Ford introduced the a cappella group Pentatonix – the night’s true villains – as “Penatonix”.
