And the winner is… Many of the biggest names in music were nominated at the 2021 American Music Awards, so find out who went home with a new trophy for their mantle.

AMAs Red Carpet 2021: Cardi B, Olivia Rodrigo & More Celebs

2021 wasn’t going to end with at least one more opportunity to celebrate the biggest and brightest stars in music. The 49th Annual American Music Awards looked to close out the year with one more “biggest night in music,” honoring some of the stars that have made the past twelve months worth living. Hosted by Cardi B and taking place on Nov. 21 at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles, the 2021 AMAs saw newcomer Olivia Rodrigo lead the pack with seven nominations. The High School Musical: The Musical: The Series star was up for Artist of the Year, New Artist of the Year, Favorite Trending Song (“drivers license”), Favorite Music Video (“drivers license”), Favorite Female Pop Artist, Favorite Pop Song (“drivers license”), and Favorite Pop Album (Sour.)

The Weeknd comes behind Olivia with six nominations. Doja Cat, Bad Bunny, and Giveon are also multi-nominated artists, with each up for five awards. Taylor Swift – who holds the record for most AMA wins of any artist ever with 32 overall – is up for three awards: Artist Of The Year, Favorite Female Pop Artist, and Favorite Pop Album (evermore). If Taylor wins any of these, she will have to accept them via satellite, as a source told HollywoodLife EXCLUSIVELY that she’s skipping this year “to add to the impact” to her recent Saturday Night Live performance.

While Taylor won’t be on hand, plenty of stars are scheduled to light up the stage. Silk Sonic will kick things off, and the night will see BTS perform “My Universe” with Coldplay. They were scheduled to perform their “Butter” remix with Megan Thee Stallion, but she pulled out the day of the show. Italian rockers (and Eurovision 2021 winners) Måneskin will perform, as will Tyler, The Creator, Walker Hayes, Kane Brown, Mickey Guyton, Chloe (aka Chloe Bailey), Zoe Wees, and Olivia Rodrigo. Bad Bunny, Tainy, and Julieta Venegas will perform “Lo Siento BB,” and Jason Aldean will team with Carrie Underwood for “If I Didn’t Love You.”

Ahead of the Sunday broadcast, the AMAs announced a handful of winners. Keep checking back to see who walked away from the 2021 AMAs with some new trophies.
