See Every Look From the American Music Awards

Last night, the American Music Awards celebrated their 40th year by giving out some awards, because they kind of have to, but that was just the filler around the show's surprising musical collaborations: MC Hammer and Psy in matching balloon pants; Christina Aguilera and Pit Bull; and Justin Bieber and Nicki Minaj for "Beauty and the Beat."
