The AMAs (American Music Awards) of 2015 were an awesome experience. Returning to the Microsoft Theater for the second time in a week (following the Mockingjay Part-2 US Premiere) was a decision I did not regret.
As always, the AMA red carpet was fantastic. Both, running into young stars who have had breakthrough years and icons who need no intro, are exciting experiences. The vibes from both are different yet there is this energy which shows they are all there to celebrate talent.

With what you may call an explosive start, Jennifer Lopez opened the night with a truly ‘JLo-esque’ performance. Singing, dancing, and looking ravishing, the host of the night really got the party started and the crowd going.
Selena Gomez looked gorgeous singing and dancing to ‘Same Old love’. The combination of her outfit, her voice, and her dancing really tied the entire performance together.
Demi Lovato performed exactly like the title of her song, ‘Confident’. Her attitude and vocals both complemented her choice of song.

One of 2015's breakout stars Meghan Trainor and Charlie Puth performed a duet of 'Like I’m gonna lose you' and ‘Marvin Gaye’.

Coldplay returned after many years to the AMAs and performed ‘Adventure of a Lifetime’. It goes without saying, they absolutely killed it.
Ariana Grande deserves a special mention for her fabulous performance that had a distinct 50s Hollywood retro-glam element to it. Ariana performed her new hit single ‘Focus’ and also took the award for ‘Favorite Pop/Rock Female Artist’. Her performance was testament to her win.
A highlight was Celine Dion’s tribute to Paris for which she sang a French song. A very moving and emotional performance that was felt by the audience.
Justin Bieber closed out the night with a phenomenal Grand Finale performance. Starting off with the soft “What Do you Mean”, He broke into dancing with an electric performance of his smash hit ‘Sorry’. With his energy level and rain pouring all over him, Justin was spectacular and ended the main event on a high note. He also won “Collaboration of the Year’ along with Skrillex.
Here are a few more cool moments from the night,
