The socially distanced ceremony also featured a number of major fashion moments: some good (many in Balmain), some bad and some down right ugly.
Scroll through the gallery below to see out picks for the best and worst dressed at the AMAs below.
BEST: Jennifer Lopez
Before performing with Muluma, the triple threat dazzled in a silvery two-piece Balmain ensemble featuring an ab baring drippy crop-top with exaggerated shoulders and matching skirt with a dangerous slit. She completed the look with strappy sandals, Inner Radiance earrings, a Be True Ring by Luminous Diamonds and wet hair style, courtesy of stylist Chris Appleton.
BEST: Bebe Rexha
In a similar look to Lopez, the firey red head showed off a sexy pink iridescent Julien Macdonald gown featuring a high-slit and asymmetrical cut-out bust. She accessorized with Casadei heels and a collection of jewels by Sydney Evans, Loree Rodkin, Anne Sisteron, Shay and Anita Ko.
BEST: Dua Lipa
The British pop star, who just released her latest single "Prisoner" with Miley Cyrus, showed off her gorgeous gams in a Versace Spring 2021 bustier mini-dress featuring sparkly embellished starfish motif and shells, inspired by the late Gianni Versace’s "Trésor de la Mer" Spring 1992 collection.
BEST: Cara Delevingne
Describing herself on Instagram as a "sparkly queen at the AMAs," the supermodel/actress suited up in a glittery Dolce & Gabbana ensemble styled with Dior jewels and black Christian Louboutin "So Kate" pumps
BEST: Megan Fox & Machine Gun Kelly
Megan Fox & Machine Gun Kelly made their red carpet debut in style. The actress sizzled in a jewel green asymmetrical one sleeve top with a-line skirt by Azzi & Osta, styled with a Tasaki Nacreous ring and a Tyler Ellis black plexi "Perry" clutch. Her rapper beau rocked a white satin jacket-style plunging top (sans shirt) and parachute pants combo by Balmain.
Lady in red! The singer, who was on hand as a presenter, wore a bold Balmain coat-like draped gown with with a long train. Over-the-knee boots and corn rows hairstyle added to the cool factor.
BEST: Kristin Cavallari
The newly single reality star turned jewelry designer donned a mauve-colored high-neck Attico’s Pre-Fall 2020 dress featuring sexy cutouts and high slit, styled with Stuart Weitzman gold "Merinda" sandals.
BEST: Laverne Cox
Part bodysuit, part gown, the "Orange Is The New Black" actress worked the red carpet in a daring one-shoulder-winged lamé creation by Michael Costello.
BEST: Becky G
The 23-year-old singer, who picked up the trophy for Favorite Female Artist - Latin, wore a gorgeous white Ralph & Russo Fall 2020 Couture one-shoulder satin gown accented crystals and Stuart Weitzman "Nudist" heels
BEST: Paris Hilton
The "This Is Paris" star stuck to her signature party girl style in a super short silver Valdrin Shahiti number featuring a plunging neckline and shoulder pads, styled with matching silver pumps, Lara Heems jewelry and high ponytail.
The "Bachlorette" star certainly deserves a rose for her sparkly midnight blue Balmain mini-dress.
BEST: Derek Hough
The World of Dance judge looked handsome in a classic grey suit styled with a black turtleneck underneath and gold safety pin detail on the jacket.
WORST: Taraji P. Henson
She usually nails her looks, but before taking the stage to host the show, the Empire actress had us scratching our heads when she walked the red carpet channeling Eartha Kit in a silver, long-sleeve, high neck embellished shift-dress by Giorgio Armani and an embellished white turban.
While we usually love velvet around the holidays, the rapper's burgundy crushed velvet shirt and sparkly pants combo just was cheesy.
WORST: Doja Cat
The "Say So" singer, who was named the winner in the New Artist of the Year category, wore an unflattering crinkly brown taffeta gown with contrasting blue piping, accessorized with wrap around sandals and a distracting necklace.
The crazy popular K-pop band majorly disappointed us wearing all the same snooze-worthy white dress shirts and black pants.
WORST: Lewis Capaldi
We get that the Scottish crooner isn't exactly a fashionisto, but we wish he would have tried harder than a sloppy white tee, black denim Levi's jacket and baggy black pants.
It' tricky to pull off a brown tux as the rapper proved. The mix match shades of chocolate and wide Bottega Veneta logo cummerbund (sans jacket) just didn't work.
