Congratulations to our User Jerry for an amazing score of 86.21% when predicting the 2018 American Music Awards winners on Tuesday. He is actually just ahead of Elias and Will Bast with 82.76% and also has a great point score total of 16,897 by using the 500 super bets wisely.
Over 400 people worldwide predicted these AMA winners in 29 categories. The awards ceremony was held in Los Angeles and was hosted by Tracee Ellis Ross. For an event loaded with surprises, our top scorer got 25 winners correct. His only misses were for Pop/Rock Duo (Migos), Country Duo or Group (Florida Georgia Line), Country Song (Kane Brown) and Soundtrack Album (“Black Panther”). That means he got the Taylor Swift sweep right, including Artist of the Year.
