Highlights from the 2017 AMAs

November 20th, 2017

You know I can’t get enough of awards shows. They’re my absolute favorite way to end a weekend and ring in a Sunday evening at home. And, last night’s 2017 American Music Awards were no exception! Entertainment Tonight said it well, “This year’s American Music Awards featured some of the most amazing, gravity-defying, crowd-pleasing performances you could ever hope for.” These shows always have their ups and downs, but for me, it’s always about the ups. I love looking back on my favorite performances of the night, the awards and of course the red carpet and on-stage fashion. If you didn’t get to see the show (or even if you did!), keep reading for a few highlights from the 2017 AMAs.
