Last night (Oct. 9) at the 2018 American Music Awards, Atlanta rap trio Migos unexpectedly took home the award for Best Pop/Rock Group, an award not even won by The Beatles; leaving social media completely perplexed.
While nominated with Imagine Dragons and Maroon 5, Quavo, Offset and Takeoff earned the nod as the AMA site states, “The AMA nominees are based on key fan interactions as reflected through Billboard, including streaming, album and digital song sales, radio airplay, social activity and touring.”
As one user says, “I am so annoyed with the #AMAs2018. Who did these music categories nominees? So many musicians aren’t being recognized in their own genres!! Since when are Migos pop/rock?!;” another perplexed user tweeted, “How does Migos win Best pop/rock band? What instruments do they play? #AMAs Sucks! Talent Lost this Year“
