This year the American Music Awards included many hip hop nominations.The nominees included artist such as  Drake, Lil Uzi, Post Malone and many others.

The AMA’s brought the energy with electric performances by Ciara and Missy Elliot.

 

Cardi B continues to trail blaze as she won two solo awards for favorite rap/hip hop artist and favorite song/ hip hop for “Bodak Yellow” and a joint win with Bruno Mars for “Finesse”. Cardi B  also lit up the stage bringing tropical vibes to perform the smash hit I like it along with Bad Bunny and J Balvin.

 

Post Malone debuted a new look on the red carpet with a hair cut. Malone also took away two awards including favorite male artist pop/rock and favorite album for rap/hiphop for beerbongs & bentleys.

 

Although we had a loss in the music industry with rapper XXXTentacion, he received the award for Favorite soul/R&B album and his mother accepted the award on his behalf. The death of the 20 year old catapulted him to the top of the charts setting a new standard for streaming services after a artist has passed away.

 

The Cruz Show’s Cece The Mamacita was on the red carpet and caught up with Migos talking about what they are working on along with Bad Bunny who had a one of a kind look on the red carpet.
