The 42nd edition of American Music Awards (AMAs) was held on Nov. 23, 2014, at the Nokia Theatre L.A. in Los Angeles, California. The most popular artists and albums of 2014 were honored at the ceremony. The event was hosted by Pitbull and aired live on ABC.  Read on to find out who the winners are at the 2014 American Music Awards.

According to Billboard, Taylor Swift accepted the first-ever Dick Clark Award for Excellence at the AMAs last Sunday night.  The trophy was presented by Diana Ross.  

“What you did by going out and investing in music and albums is you are saying that you believe in the same thing that I believe in: that music is valuable and music should be consumed in albums and albums should be consumed as art and appreciated,” said Swift, thanking her fans.

The thrill and entertainment were provided by Ariana Grande, Jessie J and Nicki Minaj, performing Bang Bang.
