The 2020 American Music Awards aired on Sunday night from Los Angeles’ Microsoft Theater with host Taraji P. Henson. Taylor Swift, The Weeknd and Dan + Shay were the top winners with three apiece.

As with all awards shows this season, the AMAs has had to adhere to COVID-19 guidelines by having a limited audience and testing everyone who enters the building. The show featured performances from Billie Eilish, Shawn Mendes, Justin Bieber, Katy Perry, Jennifer Lopez and Maluma, the Weeknd with Kenny G, BTS, Megan Thee Stallion, Dua Lipa, Dan + Shay and more.

Swift — who going into the show had 29 AMA wins, the most of all time — broke her own record and upped her tally to 32, with Sunday’s three additions, including the top prize, the favorite artist award.
