ICYMI because you were too busy reliving the nightmare of THAT X Factor shock bottom two, last night saw this year’s American Music Awards return to the Nokia Theatre, LA, to honour the very best bits from the year in music.
And ruddy HECK it was a good night. Honestly, we couldn’t be more gutted that our invite got lost in the post if we tried.
Thanks to already being in America for their Four promo tour (convenient), 1D were ACTUALLY ALLOWED A NIGHT OFF, hallelujah praise the lord, to celebrate what a bloody marvellous year they’ve had.
So that’s nice isn’t it?
The boys were in the house to collect not one, not two, but THREE HUGE AMAs on the night, including Favourite Band, Duo or Group – Pop / Rock, Favourite Album Pop / Rock and EVEN the HUGE honour of Artist of the Year.
BRAVO BRAVO BRAVO!
Yep, the five fit lads from England, who looked more appealing than a selection of cheese and a box of wine on a Sunday evening, beat out stiff competition from the likes of Beyoncé to nab the top accolade at the ceremony.
Well, they have had a good year haven’t they?
Collecting the award for best band, Liam Payne, 21, was designated speaker, saying: “It’s down to me to talk.
“It has been a real perfect day for us, today our album went to number one in the UK and now we are are here.
“I want to say a thank you to Simon Cowell, who put us here and Sonny Thakkar. America feels like a second home to us.”
Oh it’s SUCH a perfect day etc etc.
Louis Tomlinson, 22, added: “Of course we can’t finish without saying a huge thank you, you guys have been incredible. America has been so good to us.”
Err, just don’t forget about us back here in England please boys.
Taylor Swift also had a super successful night as she received the first EVER Dick Clark Award for Excellence.
If that wasn’t exciting enough, it was only presented to her by the legendary Diana Ross. YES, REALLY.
Tay took the time to thank fans for all their support over the years and subtly re-iterated why she removed her music from their service.
She said: “To the fans who went out and bought over a million copies of my last three albums.
“What you did by going out and investing in music and albums is you’re saying you believe in the same thing I believe in — that music is valuable and that music should be consumed in albums and albums should be consumed as art and appreciated.”
Sounds like the night was a massive success then?
WELL DONE EVERYONE, and we’re SO proud of our boys right now.
