2021 American Music Awards winners list: AMA winners in all categories

The 2021 American Music Awards winners were revealed on Sunday night, November 21, during a live ceremony hosted by AMA winner Cardi B .

The results were decided by fans voting online, but this time those fans were able to vote on TikTok.

 

AMA winners

Breakout teenage singer-songwriter Olivia Rodrigo entered these awards as the top nominee with seven bids including Artist of the Year and New Artist of the Year.

The Weeknd followed close behind with six bids, also including Artist of the Year.

They were nominated in that coveted category against Ariana Grande, Taylor Swift, BTS, and Drake.

Swift went in holding the record for the most Artist of the Year victories with six and was hoping for lucky number-seven this evening. Swift was also looking to extend her record for the most AMA prizes overall; she already had a whopping 32 trophies in her collection before tonight.

There were a few notable changes to this year’s awards to reflect the continuous evolution of the music industry. The pop/rock categories now strictly award pop.

Alternative rock has been broadened into just rock. Soul/R&B is now known as R&B. And rap/hip-hop awards are now simply hip-hop. The AMAs also added categories for Favorite Trending Song, Favorite Gospel Artist, and Favorite Latin Duo or Group.

Some of the other top nominees include Bad Bunny, Doja Cat and Giveon, who earned five nominations each, while BTS, Ariana Grande, Taylor Swift and Drake were among the other notable nominees.

The 2021 AMAs also recognized new categories this year, with awards handed out for Favorite Trending Song, Favorite Gospel Artist and Favorite Latin Duo or Group.
