This DEFINITELY didn't kill our vibe!
Kendrick Lamar brought his talents to the American Music Awards, and he didn't have to travel far considering he's from El Lay!
The west coast rapper took the stage to perform a few of his hit songs including Swimming Pools (Drank) and Poetic Justice!!
We loved EVERYTHING about this, although we can't help but wonder where Drake was!! Oh well, we'll take anything Kendrick throws our way!
Ch-ch-check out the perfect performance (above)!
Apparently the Nokia Theater couldn't hold Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, so they had to perform all the way in Miami instead!
Luckily thanks to technology, the dynamic duo were still able to take their talents to the American Music Awards, and even from the other side of the country they absolutely KILLED it with a performance of Can't Hold Us!
Hooray for technology!
Ch-ch-check out their performance (above)!!
Two flawless outfits in one night! That's our RiRi!
Rihanna followed up her performance of Diamonds by picking up the Icon Award and getting a shout-out from Jay Z while looking strikingly beautiful in a dramatic black gown.
The goth-inspired number featured a satin lapel detail and cascading ruffle down the center, and she paired it with simple Manolo Blahnik sandals and a diamond choker. LOVE!
Honestly, who else could pull this off but Slayanna???
She's the bestest!

Christina Aguilera didn't just come here to Say Something- she came here to SING!
A Great Big World brought The Voice coach with them at the AMAs, and they packed quite a punch!
Seriously, we thought we might need a box of tissues after this super emotional performance!
Ch-ch-check out the video (above) to see the tear-jerking, inspired performance of the moving hit Say Something!
Thanks for passing the award along, Kendall Jenner!
EDM isn't just for Molly enthusiasts anymore! It's a legit category at this year's AMAs… and guess what??
Avicii has won Favorite Artist (EDM) for 2013! We REALLY REALLY hoped he'd get up, put on his headphones, and just drop the nastiest bass in the whole world instead of his acceptance speech!
It's too bad that didn't happen. Such a missed opportunity! LOLz!
The AMAs aren't just about the up-and-coming artists!
It's also about honoring some of music's greats!
Legendary Latina singer Celia Cruz got her own tribute at this year's American Music Awards, and Jennifer Lopez made sure it was a truly spicy one!
J. Lo proved to be quite the multi-tasker as she shook her thang while ALSO performing a medley of spanish hits!
Seriously, they couldn't have picked anyone better for this!! This was easily the best performance of the night and one of the best things she's EVER done!!
Ch-ch-check out the video (above) to see J. Lo pay homage to one of music's late greats!
Te queremos, Celia!
You'd think Taylor Swift is a big enough star to avoid such a totes awks moment!
But even country superstars have embarrassing moments as Swifty was caught wearing the same dress Rosie Huntington-Whiteley wore in a One Direction photo shoot for August 2013's Glamour!
We showed you the gold showstopping number earlier, but we have GOT to talk about this here!
We're sure Swifty wasn't planning to wear a dress that former beau Harry Styles was familiar with, but that's the way her homebaked cookie crumbled!
And to top that off, Rosie actually rocked the cleavage-baring version of the dress — and it looks like the 1D boys loved that — but Swifty held strong and stood ground on the "more isn't always better" philosophy.
But is she right??
