The ceremony, held at the Staples Center on February 15, featured performances from some of the biggest names in the world of music, including Adele, Rihanna, Justin Bieber, Kendrick Lamar and many more. However, there was also plenty to keep country fans happy, including Carrie Underwood’s stunning performance of her new single ‘Heartbeat’ with Sam Hunt, as well as Little Big Town’s performance of their smash-hit ‘Girl Crush’.

Also, Luke Bryan teamed up with Demi Lovato, Meghan Trainor and John Legend, paying tribute to Lionel Richie.
