One Direction was the big winner at the American Music Awards. And they cleaned up in the virtual competition too.
The British and Irish pop group won the night’s top honor for “artist of the year” for the second year in a row. And by show’s close they were the AMAs’ “most discussed” artist, according to Twitter’s analysis of tweets shared during the course of the presentation. The four-piece outshone Justin Bieber (No. 2), Selena Gomez (3), Ariana Grande (4) and Demi Lovato (5) in the Twitter spotlight.
