One Direction Artist of the year at the American Music AwardsOne Direction won artist of the year at the American Music Awards on Sunday night and also raked in honors as favorite pop/rock band, duo or group, and favorite pop/rock album—for Midnight Memories. “This has been a real perfect day… America feels like a second home to us,” the British boy band’s Liam Payne said on stage. The other big winner of the fan-voted awards was Katy Perry, who won favorite female pop/rock artist, favorite adult contemporary artist, and single of the year for her hit “Dark Horse.” It was a good night for the absent Kerry (who is on tour in Australia): The NFL confirmed she will headline this year’s Super Bowl halftime show. Other AMA winners included breakthrough newcomer Iggy Azalea—leading the field with six nominations—who was honored as favorite rap/hip-hop artist and for favorite rap/hip-hop album for The New Classic. Enrique Iglesias won favorite Latin artist, Sam Smith was named favorite pop/rock male artist, and Luke Bryan won as favorite male country artist. Taylor Swift won the Dick Clark Award for Excellence.
