2016 American Music Awards Winners: Ariana Grande wins Artist of the Year

unnamed-1

Ariana Grande and Nicki Minaj rocked us “Side to Side” during their performance of the smash hit single at the 2016 American Music Awards held at the Microsoft Theater on Sunday (November 20) in Los Angeles. Grande also gets the biggest honor of the night when she was announced as 2016’s Artist of the Year at the American Music Awards. She beat out fellow finalists Justin Bieber, Selena Gomez, Rihanna, and Carrie Underwood. The pop star is no stranger to success at the awards show, as last year she was awarded Favorite Pop/Rock Female Artist, and was crowned New Artist Of The Year in 2013.

The 23-year-old dressed up her petite physique in an extremely sexy sheer lace crop top along with chic Alexander McQueen white trousers and black platform heels. The Way singer slicked her long straight locks up into her signature ponytail, as she also touched up her complexion with a dramatic slick of cat eye style eyeliner, bold red lips, and mascara.

Ariana has the support of not just her fans, but also her beloved grandmother Marjorie ‘Nonna’ Grande.
