Cardi B brought the party to the AMAs.




His mother, Cleopatra Bernard, said she was honoured to accept the award on behalf of her son. A salute to Queen of Soul Aretha Franklin will include Gladys Knight, Ledisi and CeCe Winans, and with a movie bio-pic soon to open, Queen will be remembered with a rendition of "Bohemian Rhapsody" by Panic! "I'm so nervous", Bernard said as the audience cheered her on. Despite having the year's top-selling album and three No. 1 hits, Drake didn't win a single award.

Rapper-singer XXXTentacion, a streaming juggernaut before his death in June and afterward, earned nominations for new artist of the year and favorite soul/R&B album for his 2017 debut, "17".

Carrie Underwood was in flawless form vocally, and Camila Cabello - who won new artist of the year - gave a touching and vocally impressive performance of the ballad Consequences, earning her a standing ovation. It was days after he was named best new artist at the BET Hip-Hop Awards. In the rap/hip-hop and pop/rock categories, Drake is up for favorite male artist, favorite album and favorite song with "God's Plan".

Other winners on the night included Migos, Shawn Mendes, Camila Cabello and Carrie Underwood.
