The 2019 American Music Awards took place on Sunday, November 24th and aired LIVE on ABC. From Lizzo’s tiny purse, to Post Malone declaring “I love grapes” and Taylor Swift performing a career-spanning medley, the night was filled with many epic moments. Her Campus at UCLA had the wonderful honor of attending the red carpet this year. Check out our highlights of the night!
X Ambassadors sent their love to Lizzo. They shared, “We worked and collaborated with her, and we’re so excited to be here supporting her. It’s incredible to watch her soar. She’s the perfect example of why we should respect and give all credit to all women in the music industry who are working hard to put out incredible women.”
Meg Donnelly also expressed her excitement for Lizzo, declaring that the artist’s songs “are so empowering for women because you can dance along to them while being inspired.” She noted her go-to songs to be “Good As Hell” and “Truth Hurts.”
Sonna Rele gave us the inside scoop on her most recent song, “Bad Bitch.” She explained, “Bad Bitch is nothing about what you look on the outside, it’s all about embracing yourself on the inside and finding confidence within yourself.” She advised, “Embrace who you are and focus on who you are within, and that will shine out.”
Seeing Post Malone! The artist’s “Hollywood’s Bleeding” album won the “Favorite Album – Rap/Hip-Hop” award!
Esther Anaya, recognized for her violin solo in the film, Abominable, shared with us why it is important to acknowledge women in the music industry. “We all have gifts that God has given us, and I feel like a lot of women who are so strong are often underestimated for the power they are capable of showing. I am here as a female, to show that If you believe in yourself and your talents, you can make anything happen. Put your dreams in God’s hands.”
Alyson Stoner dazzled in her matching sequin top and pants. The star was absolutely gorgeous and wore our favorite oufit of the night.
