Bruno Mars walked away with the maximum wins while Shawn Mendes won his very first award!

Pink and Kelly Clarkson performed for the first time and they just gave us a reason to watch the performance on repeat. Theirs was also the opening act of the evening!

Pink later on also showcased her supremely amazing skills as a performer, as she gave an air-borne performance on the side of a hotel!

Demi Lovato and Selena Gomez stumped everyone with their red carpet appearance.

Demi Lovato graced the red carpet in ESTER ABNER dress, and Boy! She got us drooling. It could easily go down as one of her best looks and the best red carpet looks of 2017 as well! Selena Gomez, on the other hand, stunned the onlookers with her blonder hair’do! Yes, Selena has adorned the blonde avatar and of course, she’s slaying our existence with that!

The songstress also performed her hit track Sorry Not Sorry giving it back to all the haters with just one performance!

Selena Gomez, on the other hand, stunned the onlookers with her blonder hair’do! Yes, Selena has adorned the blonde avatar and of course, she’s slaying our existence with that! Gomez was seen wearing a custom Coach, leather moto dress, perfectly complimenting her locks!
