After watching the 2013 American Music Awards (AMAs is a lot easier to say though), I have a few questions. One, where can I find the cat bikini Miley Cyrus was wearing because I NEED IT. Two, how can I be best friends with Rihanna? Three, does Jennifer Lopez age? And four, does Taylor Swift ever go to an awards show and NOT win awards?
In case you missed it, the AMAs had a lot going on. There were multiple performances, some amazing, some just okay. There were some serious GIFable moments and Miley Cyrus performed with a giant kitten (more on those things later). It wasn’t the best awards show I’ve ever watched (although I don’t think there is a best awards show, to be honest), but it also definitely wasn’t the worst. And if you didn’t watch, there are some things you might want to know… and if you did? Let’s relive the moments together. Here are 20 of the best things celebrities did at the AMAs, explained mostly in GIFs because obviously.
Lady Gaga rode in on a horse made of people because she’s sick of Miley stealing the spotlight.
One Direction acted really adorable, as usual.
Justin Timberlake mocked Taylor Swift’s surprised face, but she loved it.
TLC performed, sort of, with Lil Mama. It was pretty anti-climactic.
Ariana Grande won an award and was really, really adorable.
Rihanna was a flawless goddess.
R. Kelly sat between Lady Gaga and Taylor Swift and said something shocking.
One Direction hugged and acted really adorable once again.
Mark Cuban was really into one of the performances (we think it was Ke$ha and Pitbull).
Lady Gaga and R Kelly did a performance based on JFK and Marilyn Monroe, which made us a little uncomfortable.
Lady Gaga also made a statement during the end of her performance.
Jessica Biel got fed up with people being all like, “Where is Jessica Biel?” and trying to start rumors.
I'm watching from home tonight. Calm down, Internet.

Justin Timberlake and Taylor Swift linked arms and the Internet freaked out.
Niall Horan loved Nelly’s throwback performance.
Taylor Swift danced because that is now a staple in any awards show.
Rihanna’s mom presented her with her Icon award and it was the cutest mother daughter moment ever.
Even Justin Timberlake was like, “OMG did you guys see that?”
Taylor Swift admitted she was into Miley’s performance and everyone was surprised because we all thought they hated each other.
All of these people won:
Then Miley won the whole night with this giant kitten during her flawless performance and that’s all.
LOOK AT THAT CAT. I hyperventilated then almost cried.
