Congratulations to Jade for an impressive top score of 87% predicting the 2015 American Music Award winners on Sunday night. She and TWTonnyO both had the same accuracy score, but Jade stands alone at the top because she earned the most game points (3,730) based on how she placed her bets.
Hundreds of people worldwide predicted the AMA winners in 23 categories. Among our champ’s best picks were One Direction‘s big upset over Taylor Swift for Artist of the Year, as well as Skrillex, Diplo and Justin Bieber‘s “Where Are U Now” beating Swift and Kendrick Lamar‘s “Bad Blood” for Collaboration of the Year.
You can see how your score compares to hers in our leaderboard rankings of all contestants, which also includes links to see each participant’s predictions. Or you can find your score by clicking on “My Award Scores,” which appears in the gold menu bar when you’re signed in to your account.
For her efforts, Jade wins a $100 Amazon gift card, pending Gold Derby evaluating her eligibility based upon our contest rules. She must meet eligibility requirements before prizes are awarded.

In order to win, you must have the highest accuracy percentage – and maybe more than that. If more than one player has the best accuracy, the winner is the person with the highest accuracy plus most game points. So, remember to place your three super bets when making predictions. Each player gets one super bet of 500 points and two of 200 points with all the other categories worth 100 points. Strategy is key. Place those super bets wisely and they could crown you our winner.
