BTS were among the winners at the American Music Awards 2021 on Sunday evening and also performed alongside Coldplay at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles
The American Music Awards 2021 was once again full of its anticipated glitz and glamour with Korean pop group BTS dominating the show.
A star-studded line-up turned out in force at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles on Sunday night as the likes of Olivia Rodrigo and Cardi B dazzled on the red carpet.
Cardi B, 29, made her hosting debut of the show but not before she made two outfit changes for the red carpet.
In the first instance, she stunned in a black floor-length gown with a sequin leopard-print pattern before she quickly changed and reappeared showcasing a solid gold mask as she spoke to reporters at the event.
She donned a beautiful Schiaparelli off-the-shoulder dress for her second outfit and covered her face with the striking gold mask and a black veil.

She completed the look with flamboyant gold earrings in the design of an eye with blingy fingers hanging down.
Inside the ceremony it was BTS who stole the show with a brilliant live performance before they swept up the awards, taking home the gongs for Artist of the Year, Favourite Pop Duo or Group and Favourite Pop Song.
Elsewhere, Megan Thee Stallion was awarded the prizes for Favourite Trending Song, Favourite Female Hip-Hop Artist and Favourite Hip-Hop Album but unfortunately wasn’t present to accept the awards.
She took to Instagram to thank her fans for the honours, telling her 26.5 million followers: “Thank you hotties thank you @amas.
“I’m so happy so proud! I couldn’t be there physically this year but like I said I’m so excited for everything to come next year.”
