The 2018 American Music Awards proved to be a highlight-filled Tuesday night (Oct. 9), as not only did Taylor Swift become the most decorated female artist in American Music Awards history, but she also notched the biggest honor of the night in winning artist of the year. In addition to her latest feats, there were several memorable performances by Cardi B, Shawn Mendes and Camila Cabello.
For the fans who weren’t able to be in Los Angeles, they certainly enjoyed the awards from home, poking fun at some of their favorite celebrities who were on-hand. Take a peek below at some of the funniest memes and GIFs from the 2018 AMAs.
