NEWS: AMAs 2018 winners announced!

Last night (October 9th 2018) saw the 46th annual American Music Awards (or AMAs) being held at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles, California, though not many rock orientated acts were represented and nominated.

However, alongside some of the more conventional mainstream and pop acts that did see the night out as winners, so did Las Vegas pop-rockers Panic! At The Disco who won the award for Favourite Artist within the Alternative Rock category.

Along with this, though not strictly a rock artist per say, rock/metal enthusiast and involved supporter Post Malone also walked away with award of Favourite Male Artist within the Pop/Rock category and also Favourite Album in the Rap/Hip-Hop category for his sophomore album, ‘Beerbongs & Bentleys’.
