Hosted by model Gigi Hadid and actor Jay Pharoah, there was a lot going on. You can see all the winners here, but we’ll get to the good stuff.

Green Day played their new song Bang Bang and included a chant about Donald Trump

Mid song, the punk band sang:

No trump
No kkk
No facist USA

Trump has yet to comment, but you can be sure he will.

Gigi Hadid did an impression of Melania

Oh dear.

Gomez won Favourite Female Artist in the Pop Rock category, and her speech was pretty great.

She talked about her recent health issues and how it’s important to put health and happiness above all else.

Pal Taylor Swift was at home cheering her on.

Drake DRAGGED Meek Mill

Drake won three AMAs, and in his speech for Favourite Hip Hop Artist, he said:

For our genre, I like to keep things exciting and keep making music. Shout out to everybody that’s trying to do the same thing. More life is coming soon, and more tune for your head top, so watch how you speak on my name, you know?

The Meek Drake feud seems to be never ending, with many speculating it’s a not-so-subtle warning that a diss track of two will be on his new album.

Then Gigi lit the fire with this Meek diss:

Prince’s sister picked up his posthumous AMA

Prince’s sister Tyka Nelson picked up his Top Soundtrack gong, after he was nominated for the 1984 Purple Rain album this year, much to the bafflement of all. The album was eligible as it hit number two on the Billboard 200 in the wake of his death earlier this year.

Tyka accepted the win while praising her brother’s amazing career.

Prince defied the odds. A black teen from Minneapolis with a goal to electrify the world. He had the courage to be different with his vision and god-given talent.
What he told me was that he wanted to be known as the world’s most prolific songwriter. And with 984 titles to his credit and counting, he has done just that. In the words of Prince, ‘With love, honor, and respect for every living thing in the universe, separation ceases’. And we all become one being, singing one song.
