Recapping the American Music Awards 2017

If you’re looking to get straight to the drama without the extra fluff, we talk about the 2017 American Music Awards here on your Instant Noodle update.

Be warned spoiler alerts are in effect as we talk about the best performances and the winners of the night.

A few highlights from the show include Selena Gomez allegedly lip-syncing her performance of “Wolves.”  This comes from months of being out of commission since her kidney transplant which from our perspective, WHO CARES!?  It’s Selena Gomez.

Amazed that they had a K-POP boy band perform at the American Music Awards.  I saw a few fans get pretty excited by this. Like this dude!

Access Hollywood even had Shawn Mendes talk about Taylor Swift’s reputation album which I thought was pretty slick.  That would be a personal preference if I were to interview Shawn Mendes.

Performances for the American Music Awards 2017 included Christina Aguilera, Alessia Cara, Alesso, BTS, Kelly Clarkson, Florida Georgia Line, Selena Gomez, Niall Horan, Imagine Dragons, Nick Jonas, Khalid, Lady Gaga, Demi Lovato, Shawn Mendes, P!nk, Portugal. The Man, Diana Ross, Hailee Steinfeld, watt and Zedd.
