The Chopsticks Brothers may have been new to the American Music Awards audience when they took the stage Sunday night to accept the International Song Award for their viral track "Little Apple," but 1.4 billion people on the other side of the world have been unable to get their song out of their heads for the past six months.
At Sunday night's American Music Awards, you saw Selena Gomez bare her heart — and Iggy Azalea and Jennifer Lopez bare so much more — but there was plenty going on backstage at Los Angeles' Nokia Theater that didn't make it to your TV screens.
Although Selena Gomez is known for upbeat dance-pop hits like "Come & Get It" and "Love You Like a Love Song," the 22-year-old slowed down the tempo on the 2014 American Music Awardswith her personal new single "The Heart Wants What It Wants." The performance was part of a star-packed ceremony on Sunday night from the Nokia Theatre L.A. Live in Los Angeles.
5 Seconds of Summer had no problem getting the audience dancing during their performance during the 2014 American Music Awards on Sunday night.
Surprisingly, the Australian pop-punk band eschewed performing their hit "She Looks So Perfect," or their ballad "Amnesia," and instead treated fans to a fan favorite, a cover of The Romantics' 1979 hit "What I Like About You."
No offense to all the great performances at the 2014 American Music Awards, but everyone knows one of the best reasons to watch any awards show is for Taylor Swift. Whether she's performing, presenting, or just enthusiastically dancing in the audience, Swift always delivers -- and Sunday night's show was no exception.
The seemingly ageless star reminded everyone what she was famous for as she closed the American Music Awards on Sunday with her collaboration with Iggy Azalea, "Booty." Azalea would have stood out on her own, were that last performance not dominated by Lopez; instead, the performance became a reminder of the woman who originally brought backsides into the conversation on standards of beauty.
Taylor Swift doing "Blank Space" is a hard act to follow, but she might've gotten one-upped at this year's AMAs. Wearing a bright red pair of Lolita sunglasses, Charli XCX hit the stage to perform a medley of songs from her upcoming second album Sucker, "Boom Clap" and "Break the Rules."
