American Music Awards: Memorable Celebrity Shoes From Years Past

The 2015 American Music Awards are just days away, and for the fans who want to remember some of the best red carpet fashions from years past, Footwear News has rounded up the most memorable shoe moments over the years.

Jennifer Lopez will host the AMAs on Sunday night, and she’s sure to keep the energy level high throughout the live event. The singer is no stranger to the AMA stage — she has been performing at the show since 2001.

Last year, Lopez arrived in a Reem Acra cutout dress and Christian Louboutin Pigalle Strass pumps. In 2009, she opted for head-to-toe Gucci .

Taylor Swift — who leads this year’s pack with six AMA nominations — often chooses Jimmy Choo to complete her red carpet ensembles. The “Bad Blood” singer wore Jimmy Choo shoes at the AMAs in 2014, 2013, 2012, 2011 and 2010.

Other designers repeatedly seen on the AMA red carpet include Christian Louboutin, Manolo Blahnik and Giuseppe Zanotti.

Nicki Minaj made a statement in 2010 in metallic gold Louboutin platform sandals, paired with an eye-catching Manish Arora dress. The rapper was on hand that year to present the award for Best Soul/R&B Female to Rihanna.

Justin Bieber, Ariana Grande, Gwen Stefani, The Weeknd, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, Coldplay, One Direction, Nick Jonas, Demi Lovato, Walk the Moon, Selena Gomez, 5 Seconds of Summer and country star Carrie Underwood are slated to perform. Tune in on Sunday, Nov. 22, at 8:00 p.m. ET on ABC.
