It was kind of wild because two 50-year-old women definitely held the audience captivated! We’re talking about Taraji P. Henson, who was the evening’s host, pulled off one stunning wardrobe change after another. Meanwhile, Jennifer Lopez did what she does best for her performance number. It’s no secret she’s a pro at shaking that moneymaker, and honey did she shake it. But first, let’s have a gander at the ladies’ red carpet looks.

J.Lo and Taraji both donned silver gowns for the carpet.

Taraji went with a short shift and turban, while J.Lo opted for a two-piece with a slit all the way up her thigh.

Yams were out all around because Ciara also gave a little peep show in her red and black gown. We love her braids too.

Doja Cat also let it all hang out in this metallic tan look. She had multiple red carpet ‘fits though.

Machine Gun Kelly also performed for the show, while his love Megan Fox presented an award. This was apparently their red carpet debut as a pair. They definitely make for a great red carpet couple, riiiiight?!

Most of the action at the American Music Awards happened on the stage, red carpet or backstage. The event was definitely COVID safe — there was no audience — unless these cardboard cutouts of Beyoncé, Jay-Z, and Dolly Parton count.

Here are two more of Taraji’s looks from her night of hosting. She had a lot of really over the top looks but we really enjoyed her natural hair looks best, especially in these simple chic dresses.
