American Music Awards Background
This year's award show
celebrates the AMAs 42nd year running, making it one of the most prestigious and recognized award shows in all of music. Dick
Clark created the AMAs in 1973 for ABC, and aimed to approach music differently than the Grammys. While the Grammys decides
on winners based on votes by the Recording Academy members, the AMAs determine winners by polling the public and music buyers.
Essentially, the American Music Awards is decided by the people, as music fans play a huge role in deciding which artists
go home with an AMA and which ones leave empty-handed.
The inaugural AMA show was held in 1974, and was co-hosted by
Michael Jackson and Donny Osmond. Some of the most awarded artists in the show's history include Michael Jackson with 26 awards,
Alabama with 23 awards, and Whitney Houston with 22 awards. The American Music Awards also hands out International Artist
Awards for Excellence, which has only been granted to seven artists to date: Michael Jackson, Rod Stewart, The Bee Gees, Led
Zeppelin, Beyonce, Aerosmith, and Whitney Houston.
Last year's American Music Award show was one of the most talked
about events of the year, and featured performances by TLC, A Great Big World and Christina Aguilera, Kendrick Lamar, Katy
Perry, One Direction, Ariana Grande, Justin Timberlake, Rihanna, Florida Georgia Line, Luke Bryan, Miley Cyrus, and many more.
