Tonight, most of the world's biggest pop stars, minus Adele and Taylor Swift, gathered in L.A. for the 2015 American Music Awards. The Weeknd was among the night's big winners, taking home two awards for Favorite Male Artist and Favorite Soul R&B Album (Beauty Behind the Madness). The year's best hip-hop album was awarded to Nicki Minaj's The Pinkprint, which beat out J. Cole's 2014 Forest Hills Drive and Drake's If You're Reading This Its Too Late.
