Before 2014 comes to an end, the American Music Awards brings together music's biggest and brightest to honor their achievements and welcome them to the stage. And of course, our favorite artists made sure to get all glammed up for the occasion.

And they didn't disappoint. From glitzy fringe worn by Mary J. Blige to the simple little black dress that Nicki Minaj wore, the ladies went all out and made sure to keep it classy. That also went for the skin that some of the women decided to show off like Jennifer Lopez's muted pink cut-out number and Jordin Sparks' thigh-high slit. But there were some like Rita Ora and Jhene Aiko who went old school and whipped out the floor-length gowns complete with poof in all the right places.

As for the men, they went for super casual like Jaden Smith's look to Ne-Yo's dapper suit. Aloe Blacc made sure everyone knew what he did for a living by having the title written across his chest.

Check out the looks from the 2014 American Music Awards red carpet above.
