Last night the likes of Taylor Swift, Justin Timberlake and Rihanna all shook their thangs and picked up trophies at the American Music Awards, providing us with endless GIF-tastic moments. But fear not if you missed out because we've rounded up six highlights from the glitzy ceremony...
1) Rihanna Is (Officially) An Icon
The shape shifting Ms Fenty walked away with the Icon Award, not before treating us to an Celine Dion-esque rendition of ‘Diamonds’ (with a real life orchestra and everything). Jay-Z sent a video message, Katy Perry joined in with the standing ovation and Rihanna’s mum presented her with the award, in a very emotional speech.
2) Taylor Swift Won All The Awards
Well four…including Artist Of The Year (she’s won this three times already). Meanwhile, Justin Timberlake trolled Taylor’s Happy Faces (see hilarious GIF above).
3) Justin Timberlake Went Country
Could we see a non-GIF JT and Taylor duet in the near future? Well maybe. After suggesting that he might do a country album in the future, Justin performed his new song ‘Drink You Away’ which had a definite twangy, communal vibe to it. We think that he's a better fit than Ed Sheeran TBH...
4) Can I Haz Wrecking Ball?
Forget the mad teddy bears and small people, Miley’s new stage co-star was a space bound, lip synching LOLcat. She gave us this frill performance of ‘Wrecking Ball’ with only the space kitten for company. We can't wait for the Miley feat. Charlie From Charlie Bit My Finger performance.
5) Kendrick Lamar Goes Swimmingly
Woo! Our favourite rapper Kendrick Lamar, took some time out from his Drake feud to deliver this lovingly simple performance of his Mutya Keisha Siobhan covered track ‘Swimming Pools’ and the Janet Jackson sampling ‘Poetic Justice’.
6) TLC And Lil Mama Teamed Up
After Lil Mama played Lisa Left Eye Lopes in the TV moviel ‘Crazy Sexy Cool’, the rapper teamed up with the duo for a version of their classic ‘Waterfalls’ with LM doing the Lisa rap. Could this be a line up that creates the new TLC album? We hope so...
