From Taylor Swift making history to Shania Twain rolling back the years, the American Music Awards delivered a string of memorable moments.

During Sunday’s ceremony in Los Angeles, Swift broke Michael Jackson’s record as the most successful artist in AMAs history while Twain brought the curtain down on the evening with a medley of her best-known songs.

A star-studded list of performers – including Lizzo, Billie Eilish and Camila Cabello – ensured it was a night to remember.
