Best & Worst Moments: Depending How You Look At It #SpillThaTea (Courtsey Of Billboard.com)

Selena Gomez shines bright

With a staircase full of tuxedoed male dancers, a bedazzled Selena Gomez delivered “Same Old Love” with fireballs and disco balls for a shimmery performance of her 2015 album Revival. While the track was heavily censored, Gomez’s set offered the night’s most eye candy.

Miss Piggy says “Hello” spoof

While it was a plug for ABC’s forthcoming show The Muppets, Miss Piggy and her former flame, Kermit The Frog, teamed for a commercial spoof that Adele would be quick to co-sign.

Ariana Grande brings “Focus”

Her first TV performance of “Focus” included a fringe-y ensemble as she pranced around in white pumps and shook her tail feather.

The Weeknd delivers fiery set

Abel Tesfaye set the stage aflame — as he oft does — for a hot rendition of “The Hills.” Without breaking a sweat that could be seen on HD flat screens, The Weeknd was soaking up the spotlight, especially after winning the AMA for Best Soul/ R&B album for Beauty Behind the Madness.

Diddy gives special shout out

Puff Daddy saying: “Can we give it up for Jennifer Lopez?” as flashbacks to 1999 to 2001 when the two were an item danced in the Internet’s minds.

Celine Dion performs tribute to Paris

With a heartfelt preamble from Jared Leto, the iconic songbird performed “Hymne a L’Amour” for a touching tribute to Paris and the victims of the recent attacks at Le Bataclan. With a montage of the city’s landmarks including The Louvre and The Eiffel Tower, Dion did Edith Piaf’s record justice.

Alanis Morissette returns

1995 made its way into 2015 with Alanis Morissette’s performance of “You Oughta Know” with special guest Demi Lovato. Suffice to say, the ’90s babies lost their shit

Jennifer Lopez busts a move

Dressed in tribal garb designed by DSQUARED2, Jennifer Lopez belted the opening notes of her 1999 club smash “Waiting For Tonight” (the opera version, not the original) before launching into a dance-a-thon for the year’s monster hits including Bruno Mars’ “Uptown Funk,” Nicki Minaj’s “Anaconda,” Beyonce “Feeling Myself,” and Rihanna’s “Bitch Better Have My Money.” She then made it rain with bills falling from the sky. Still, it was a bummer for JLo Stans, who awaited a flashback compilation of her jams.

Gwen Stefani pours her heart out

With a montage of selfies as her backdrop, Gwen Stefani had a message to her old life with “Used To Love You.” It seemed like an ill-timed performance given her current relationship status: currently swooning in blossoming romance with The Voice co-star, Blake Shelton, after finalizing her split from Gavin Rossdale.
