2015 american music awards: the complete winners list

The 2015 American Music Awards boasted performances from the full-on roll call of today’s musicians — from Justin Bieber to Coldplay to Ariana Grande to One Direction to Pentatonix to, well, you name it — during its live broadcast on Sunday (Nov. 22).

But the performances were only half the fun, and some of these same artists also went home with a shiny souvenir (or two) as they hit the stage to collect the night’s prizes.

One Direction, Nicki Minaj and The Weeknd emerged as the year’s biggest winners, each nabbing two turns at the podium to collect. Here’s a list of all the 2015 AMAs winners.
