The 2018 American Music Awards had its fair share of fabulous moments: from Jennifer Lopez’s stunning debut of her latest tune “Limitless,” to the debut of Carrie Underwood’s growing baby bump, to Taylor Swift using her acceptance speech to get viewers to register to vote.

Despite all these moments and many other memorable events throughout the evening, the focus was all on the winners who took home the show’s iconic clear pyramid for their work in the music industry.

While the Grammy Awards are awarded based on votes by members of the National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences, the AMAs are determined by a poll of music buyers and the public.

The AMAs weres created by Dick Clark in 1973 to compete with the Grammy Awards, which at the time, were the gold standard of awards for the music business.
