Taylor Swift, Beyoncé, BTS and Harry Styles among winners at 2022 American Music Awards

Read Time:6 Minute

This year’s edition of the American Music Awards (AMAs) has just wrapped up, with the biggest winners of the night including Taylor Swift, Beyoncé, Kendrick Lamar, BTS and Harry Styles.

Swift was the overall champion this year, taking home all six of the AMAs she was nominated for; in addition to winning the titles of Favorite Female Pop Artist and Favorite Female Country Artist, last year’s re-recorded version of ‘Red’ scored her the awards in both genre’s corresponding Favorite Album categories. From that album, too, ‘All Too Well’ took out the award for Favorite Music Video.

On the flipside, Styles took home the award for Favorite Male Pop Artist, and Morgan Wallen won Favorite Male Country Artist. Wallen also scored the title of Favorite Country Song with ‘Wasted On You’, while Styles took out Favorite Pop Song with ‘As It Was’.

Elsewhere in the artist-led categories, winners included Dove Cameron (for New Artist Of The Year), Coldplay (Favorite Touring Artist), Dan + Shay (Favorite Country Duo Or Group), Yahritza Y Su Esencia (Favorite Latin Duo Or Group), Machine Gun Kelly (Favorite Rock Artist), For King & Country (Favorite Inspirational Artist), Tamela Mann (Favorite Gospel Artist) and Marshmello (Favorite Dance/Electronic Artist).

Especially notable is BTS’ win for Favorite Pop Duo Or Group – this marks their fourth consecutive win in the category, and makes them the first artist to achieve such a hot streak. The group also won the first-ever award for Favorite K-Pop Artist.

In terms of the other genre-centric categories with gender splits, the respective Favorite Male and Favorite Female awards went to Lamar and Nicki Minaj (Hip-Hop), Chris Brown and Beyoncé (R&B), and Bad Bunny and Anitta (Latin). Lamar also won Favorite Hip-Hop Album (for ‘Mr. Morale & The Big Steppers’), while Beyoncé won Favorite R&B Album (for ‘Renaissance’) and Favorite R&B Song (for ‘Break My Soul’).

Meanwhile, this year’s AMAs featured three more new awards; the first-ever Favorite Rock Song title was given to Måneskin for ‘Beggin’’, while Ghost picked up Favorite Rock Album (for ‘Impera’) and Wizkid picked up Favorite Afrobeats Artist.
