Keith Urban, Bruno Mars win multiple awards at AMAs

Selena Gomez Goes Blonde for the American Music Awards

It wasn't the Super Bowl halftime show, but Lady Gaga treated her American Music Awards appearance with the same extravagant bombast.

To open the American Music Awards, Pink and Kelly Clarkson sang a moving cover of R.E.M.'s "Everybody Hurts" that paid respect to everyone affected by the tragedies of 2017.

"I wish I could be partying with y'all", said Mars, who appeared in a video. Before their performance on Sunday night in Los Angeles, Jamie Foxx stood in front of a group of first responders and said that this year "tested our faith". It's hosted by black-ish star Tracee Ellis Ross, whose mother - music legend Diana Ross - is being honored with the American Music Music Award for Lifetime Achievement.

The 73-year-old was cheerful and energetic as she ran through well-known songs onstage like a veteran, singing I'm Coming Out and Ain't No Mountain High Enough, among other hits, with her signature big hair.

Also picking up multiple awards were Keith Urban, Luis Fonsi, Daddy Yankee and Justin Bieber.

The two pop singers traded vocals on the song while images from recent natural disasters played on screens behind them.

The two singers had never met before the dress rehearsal but when they finally hit the AMAs stage at the beginning of the ceremony, their duet was ideal, wowing the audience and landing them a standing ovation.

Besides breaking many records on Billboard with its music, BTS was awarded the Top Social Artist at the Billboard Music Awards 2017 last May. Other categories where male acts dominate include tour and video of the year, among others.

The AMAs are one of the biggest nights in music and with some of the biggest names in the industry in attendance a show-stopping opener was a must - and Pink and Clarkson did not disappoint.

Video of the year: Bruno Mars, That's What I Like.
