Nicki Minaj Wins at American Music Awards 2015: Check Out All the Winners Here

Nicki Minaj

Nicki Minaj’s ascent to American Icon continued tonight as she picked up her fifth and sixth-ever American Music Awards, almost as many BET Hip Hop Awards and half as many BET Awards as she’s earned throughout her stellar career.

The night began with a tribute that only Jenny from the Block could have delivered –– a mashup of choreography to all songs popular including Nicki’s “Anaconda,” Beyoncé’s “7/11,” The Weeknd’s “Can’t Feel My Face,” and enough of Drake’s “Hotline Bling” to get another round of memes going.

The Weeknd, who was recently gifted an official Michael Jackson Victory Tour jacket, then jumped off the night’s awards winning his first-ever AMA, following an introduction from Prince. He beat out Chris Brown and D’Angelo and the Vanguard for Favorite Album – Soul/R&B, sparking the only beef of the night: Tank wanna know why Tyrese, who was there presenting, wasn’t even nominated for his No. 1 album, Black Rose.
