The 2015 American Music Awards 11/22/2015, with the biggest names in pop. Winners of the fan-voted awards included One Direction, the Weeknd, Ariana Grande and Nicki Minaj. The show looked to offer a glimpse of who dominated the pop conversation in 2015, but the performances made the biggest impact, including a kiss between Meghan Trainor and Charlie Puth that went on (and on), a heartfelt tribute to Paris from Celine Dion and Jared Leto and Justin Bieber making a splash as the night closed.

 

Jennifer Lopez performs outstanding dance during the 2015 American Music Awards at Microsoft Theater on Nov. 22, 2015 in Los Angeles, California. Wearing a skintight bejeweled dress and multi-colored jacket, she began her performance singing a slowed down version of one of her original hits “Waiting for Tonight,” before announcing, “Tonight isn’t about me, it’s about the music. And this year the music made me want to dance,” she declared before dancing to a seven-minute medley of the biggest hits of the year, including “Uptown Funk,” “Anaconda,” “7/11,” “I Can’t Feel My Face,” and “Bad Blood.”

Justin Bieber, was dancing along in his seat doing the robot while J.Lo danced to “Where Are U Now.”
