Posted Monday November 23, 2015 10:14 AM GMT

Rounding out the weekend with a star-studded shindig, the 2015 American Music Awards took over the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles last night (November 22).

Leading the pack with three wins (including Song of the Year and Album of the Year) was Taylor Swift, though her ex-boyfriend Harry Styles and his One Direction bandmates nabbed Favorite Group and Artist of the Year honors.

Meanwhile, Jared Leto gave a heartfelt message to those affected by the terrorist attacks in Paris, France, noting, "Tonight we honor the victims of the unimaginable violence that took place in Paris and around the world. France matters. Russia matters. Mali matters. Syria matters... The whole world matters. Peace is possible."

Furthermore, Demi Lovato joined Alanis Morissette for a 20th anniversary performance of “You Oughta Know,” and Ariana Grande brought her grandmother as her date.
