13 moments you might have missed from last night's American Music Awards

Rita Ora was not wearing a robe. Repeat: not wearing a robe.

APART FROM NIALL Horan’s ~interesting~ new hat making an appearance on stage, the American Music Awards in LA last night actually featured some standout moments not involving headwear.

1. Pink performed off the side of a 34-storey building, as you do

10. Lady Gaga wasn’t at the awards, but set up her own photoshoot to make everyone on Instagram think she was about to appear

She was all the way back in New York at the time.

11. Jared Leto had a slightly rambling introduction for the Artist of the Year award – eventually won by Bruno Mars

12. Demi Lovato brought transgender politician Danica Roem with her on the night

Demi posted a defiant message on Instagram:

Such an honor to have Danica Roem who will be the first out and seated transgender state legislator in U.S. history by my side tonight at the AMAs. Danica put up with a lot of hate and bullshit by people who said she couldn’t win but she did. Her story is so inspiring and I was so proud to have her next to me before the performance for #sorrynotsorry which is an unapologetic anthem to all haters out there.

13. And finally… Pink teamed up with Kelly Clarkson to pay tribute to all the victims of the many, many tragedies in 2017
