2020 American Music Awards winners list in all categories: Who won at the AMAs?

Who were the big winners at the 2020 American Music Awards? The 48th annual event hosted by Taraji P. Henson took place on Sunday night, November 22, and aired live on ABC. The results were decided by fans voting online. Scroll down to see who the honorees were in all 32 categories, updated live throughout the night.

Pop/R&B star The Weeknd and breakthrough rapper Roddy Ricch led the nominations with eight apiece. The Weeknd was up for Artist of the Year in addition to Favorite Pop/Rock Male Artist and Favorite Soul/R&B Male Artist, among numerous others. His year consisted of a chart-topping album, “After Hours,” as well as the record-breaking single “Blinding Lights,” which spent more weeks in the top five on the Billboard Hot 100 than any other song in history.

Ricch was also up for Artist of the Year, as well as New Artist of the Year, Collaboration of the Year (“Rockstar” with DaBaby) and Favorite Rap/Hip-Hop Male Artist. His debut studio album “Please Excuse Me for Being Antisocial” debuted at number-one on the Billboard 200, and he spent longer on top of the Hot 100 than any other artist in 2020 with “Rockstar” (seven weeks) and “The Box” (11 weeks).

Rounding out the Artist of the Year race were two-time past winner Justin Bieber, five-time winner Taylor Swift and recent Billboard Music Awards champion Post Malone. Of those, Swift had history on the line as she already held the record for the most victories for Artist of the Year and the most AMA victories overall (29). She had a good chance of extending both of those records since she continues to have one of the most passionate fan bases in the music business; consider that she released her latest album “Folklore,” a creative departure, with almost no advance promotion and it still spent eight weeks at number-one and sold more than a million copies.

How did they all do when all was said and done? Find out below, and join the discussion on this and more with your fellow music fans here in our forums.
