Besides the night of the Grammys, the night of the American Music Awards is the second biggest night of the year for music. This year, artists like Bruno Mars, Niall Horan and The Weeknd topped the charts with their singles. While Taylor Swift dominated last year’s show, this year Drake has the most nominations, with thirteen. Rihanna comes in second with seven, while Justin Bieber has five.
This year, the show will be a more interactive experience due to a partnership with the app Kik. Fans watching will be able to access pictures and videos of presenters, performers, hosts, and nominees by talking with a AMAs Kik bot. Throughout the event, fans can log onto their Kik account and share emojis, stickers and GIFs with their friends. Another feature is that they’ll be able to replay their favorite moments of the night and relive the drama.
