Iggy Azalea performs onstage at the 2014 American Music Awards at Nokia Theatre L.A. Live on November 23, 2014 in Los Angeles, California.

When Iggy Azalea took the stage at the 2014 American Music Awards on Sunday, she had just won the trophy for Favorite Album - Rap/Hip-Hop. Which, according to I-G-G-Y, is the first award she's ever won. Nice!

Azalea was joined by her "Fancy" collaborator Charli XCX (who had just destroyed the stage during her one-two Sucker punch) for a run-through of their Billboard Hot 100 chart-topper, the longest-running No. 1 single on the Hot 100 from a female rapper. For as many times as we've heard "Fancy," it was worth revisiting if only for the theatrical setup, which found Iggy rapping the verses like a politician giving a press conference.

In addition to "Fancy," Azalea performed "Beg For It" -- but this time, without her collaborator. Although the Australian rapper had tweeted about MØ joining her at the AMAs despite the Danish singer's SNL vocal flub, MØ was nowhere to be found during the performance. No word yet on why she wasn't there. 

Speaking of technical difficulties, Azalea herself seemed to have some mic issues during "Beg For It." Maybe the song is cursed?
