American Music Awards 2017 turned out to be quite an eventful night with powerhouse songsters Kelly Clarkson and Pink singing R.E.M.'s Everybody Hurts together, which kick-started the show on a high note. Selena Gomez’s act, Christina Aguilera's tribute to Whitney Houston, Lady Gaga’s video performance, Diana Ross’s Lifetime Achievement Award, and Mike Shinoda’s emotional speech dedicated to the band’s late frontman, Chester Bennington, after Linkin Park won an award were some of the evening’s buzzworthy moments along with an array of accolades bestowed upon myriads of artistes.
