The American Music Awards 2022 aka AMAs was held at Microsoft Theatre in Los Angeles on November 20 and streamed live exclusively on Lionsgate Play. The world’s largest fan-voted awards show was hosted by TV personality Wayne Brady and featured some of the biggest names in music, honoured for their achievements, and delivering jaw-dropping live performances.

The big highlight of the night was Taylor Swift’s big win. The superstar singer-songwriter won the night's biggest honour as she landed the coveted ‘Artist of the Year’ award and thanked her die-hard Swifties for their encouragement. The Anti-hero singer also took home the AMAs for Favorite Pop Album, for Red (Taylor's Version), Favorite Female Pop Artist, and Favorite Music Video for All Too Well: The Short Film.
