  4. Ri Ri October 9, 2018

    That’s some b******* that Drake didn’t win no awards. God’s Plan was #1 longer than Post Malone and Cardi B’s songs. How Cardi win Best Rap Artist when Drake and Post Malone had a bigger year on the charts than Cardi?Their songs were more successful. I call b*******.

    • Jasmine Da Bi Asian NOT Trashmine or TROLLmine🙋🏿‍♀️💁🏿‍♀️B October 10, 2018

      It’s American music awards not billboard awards, chart success doesn’t equal an automatic win. Cardi had a breakout year so it makes sense. Duh. Plus post Malone sucks

      • Ri Ri October 10, 2018

        If you go to the AMAs website it states the awards are based off the Billboards,airplay and streams.

      • Ri Ri October 10, 2018

        American Music Awards nominees are based on key fan interactions as reflected in Billboard Magazine and on Billboard.com, including album and digital song sales, radio airplay, streaming, social activity and touring. These measurements are tracked by Billboard and its data partners, including Nielsen Music and Next Big Sound.

        The “2018 American Music Awards” is produced by d*** clark productions. Barry Adelman, Mark Bracco and Tracee Ellis Ross are Executive Producers. Larry Klein is Producer.

  5. Achooo! October 10, 2018

    White girl with no rhythm or stage presence won Tour of the Year. Unbelievable!

  6. Keith October 10, 2018

    I didnt inderstand these awards other than to say they gave everyone wbo agreed to show up and perform an award. Cardi over Drake? Post Malone? Havana? Not SZA in rnb categories? Did Taylor Swift’s friends do the voting?

    • Ri Ri October 10, 2018

      Right

  7. MissImpartial October 10, 2018

    Since when are Migos Pop/Rock?

  8. Yes October 10, 2018

    Yes Taylor swift! Getting people mad!

  9. Rosemary R. Peters October 10, 2018

  10. ??? October 10, 2018

    lmaoooo damn, roach’s album with her camel flops hard, now their tired tour gets ended by taylor swift’s tour. the roaches are crying today LMFAOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

  11. Kosher October 10, 2018

    I don’t necessarily agree with all the winners, but it’s also important to note that these awards are fan voted. So while Drake deserved wins in a lot of these categories based on the impact and success of the song… Drake fans simply aren’t tweeting and voting 10 times per day each day for weeks — Taylor Swift fans however, they the type to camp out two weeks without eating or showering just to get a picture.

    Congrats to all winners though!

    • Ri Ri October 10, 2018

      I found that out after the awards that it’s based on fan votes. I was like how Drake didn’t get any awards?

  12. DC October 10, 2018
