In a night filled with some explosive, powerhouse performances, like host Jennifer Lopez’s bombastic opening medley, and some legitimately shocking moments -- such as Meghan Trainor and Charlie Puth's incredibly long make-out session -- the night was still all about who walked away with more hardware to put on their mantelpiece.
It was a big evening for One Direction, Nicki Minaj and The Weeknd, who all took home awards in two categories, and a number of other big stars got some serious awards love as well. Check out the full list of the night's winners at this year's American Music Awards below...
