The 2014 American Music Awards were handed out Sunday night at the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles with Pitbull presiding over the ceremonies once again. Heading into the evening, Iggy Azalea led the pack with six AMA nominations. One Direction, however, ended up being the night’s big winner, taking home three awards- Artist of the Year, Favorite Pop/Rock Band/Duo/Group, and Favorite Pop/Rock Album for Midnight Memories.

Unlike the VMAs though, Azalea didn’t go home empty-handed this time. The Aussie femcee won two categories. Taylor Swift also got in on the action by earning the event’s most prestigious honor. The legendary Diana Ross presented the “Blank Space” singer with the first-ever Dick Clark Award of Excellence!

Katy Perry and Sam Smith took home honors for Favorite Pop/Rock Female Artist and Favorite Pop/Rock Male Artist respectively. Check out all the winners below.

In between all the acceptance speeches, there was a whopping 18 performances crammed into the three-hour telecast. There was something for everyone with artists ranging from teen dreams 5 Seconds of Summer to R&B veteran Mary J. Blige. My favorites of the night were Ariana Grande, Taylor Swift, Sam Smith, Jennifer Lopez, Iggy Azalea and Jessie J reuniting with Nicki Minaj and Grande.

On the flip side, I took bathroom breaks during Selena Gomez, Magic! and Fergie‘s set. Was it me, or did the Duchess move awkwardly slow and look a tad stiff? No disrespect but she looked like Iggy’s grandmother on stage. Check out the performances below.

For those hoping my Pitbull obsession would die soon, you’re out of lucky. It still burns inexplicably bright for Mr. Worldwide. Maybe one day it’ll fade away, but that isn’t today :)

The 33-year-old rapper debuts another track off his forthcoming album, Globalization, in stores November 24. “Time Of Our Lives” reunites Pitbull with Ne-Yo. The two previously collaborated on the 2011 chart-topper “Give Me Everything.”

As you would expect, “Time Of Our Lives” is another party anthem with a killer celebratory hook. The duo dedicate the track to everyone who’s going through tough times. Kind of a change of pace from Pitbull’s usual lyrics of bottle service, downing shots of Fireball and sunny destinations. It’s not groundbreaking but a fun listen. Let loose and check it out below.

As many of you know, I’m inexplicably infatuated with Mr. Worldwide. Maybe one day, I can get to the bottom of it. Until then, expect to see anything Pitbull-related on the site.

The 33-year-old rapper is usually seen accompanied by scantily-clad women in his music videos. He trades in his trademark video hos in his latest visual for some adorable animated penguins. Skipper, Kowalski, Rico and Private to be exact.

Celebrate” is a family-friendly pop jam for the new animated movie Penguins of Madagascar. It’ll also appear on his forthcoming album Globalization due out November 24. As you’d expect, the video is a tad cheesy but appropriate given its purpose. With that said, I can still see it being a club anthem at every club down on South Beach. Give it a view below.

Pitbull Debuts Fireball Video Featuring John Ryan

Call me biased (I love him), but can Pitbull do any wrong when it comes to churning out club bangers. The 33-year-old rapper consistently provides the goods with “Timber” and “Feel This Moment” being excellent examples.

For his latest “Fireball,” a Latin-tinged scorcher, Pitbull enlists newcomer John Ryan to provide the vocals. It’s off his forthcoming album, Globalization, due out early next year. David Rousseau directs the accompanying visual which features Mr. Worldwide do what he does best- party. This time, however, in a roaring 20s-type setting. Check out the clip below.

YouTube recently compiled the most-played music videos for the first half of 2014. Not surprisingly with the entire planet having World Cup fever, a couple official anthems by Pitbull and Shakira for the sporting event cracked the Top 10. The “Hips Don’t Lie” singer also snatched a second spot thanks to her collaboration “Can’t Remember To Forget You” with Rihanna.

Frozen‘s “Let It Go” sing-a-long version, Chainsmokers viral “#SELFIE” and Iggy Azalea also made the cut. The honor for most-played video though goes to Katy Perry. Her “Dark Horse” visual has amassed a staggering 485 million plays. Check out the Top 10 below.

Becky G Just Can’t Get Enough Of Pitbull

Being the embarrassingly hardcore Pitbull fan that I am, naturally I had to share his latest collaboration. Is it me or does it seem like Mr. Worldwide is practically everywhere these days? His latest appearance finds himself pairing up with 17-year-old Inglewood rapper Becky G.

Who is Becky G you say? Dr. Luke’s protege has worked with the likes of Cher Lloyd, Kesha and even persuaded Jennifer Lopez to make a cameo in her debut music video.

Even though I prefer Becky G’s “Shower” to “Can’t Get Enough,” I don’t blame her for filming a music video for the latter first. Naturally, it has the Pitbull factor. But it also recently hit number one on Billboard’s Latin Rhythm Airplay chart. Give the colorful visual a spin below. I also suggest checking out “Shower” below. That song has the making of becoming a Summer smash given the right promotion.

I wonder if Pitbull ever gets tired of wearing his suits. Especially in warmer climates? I suppose it is his signature look after all. But still.. Dude must be boiling.

Once again Mr. Worldwide teams up with Jennifer Lopez for another Latin-tinged track. This time it’s for the official 2014 FIFA World Cup song. Given that it’s taking place in Sao Paolo this year, the duo enlisted Brazillian pop singer Claudia Leitte to give it some authentic local spice. They dance along with a crowd of onlookers, samba dancers and bongo players. Check out the Ben Mor-directed clip below.

Pitbull and Jennifer Lopez teaming up has become a yearly tradition. Since 2011 the duo have released a collaboration. First came “On The Floor” in 2011 and then “Dance Again” and “Live It Up” the following years. Their 2014 offering finds them enlisting a third in Claudia Leitte.

The three get their Brazilian on for “We Are One (Ole Ola).” The track is the Official 2014 FIFA World Cup Song! It’s the lead cut off the World Cup’s album, One Love, One Rhythm. Mr. Worldwide along with J. Lo and Leitte will perform the song live during the opening ceremony of the World Cup on June 12 in Sao Paulo, Brazil.

“We Are One (Ole Ola)” is their weakest collab yet (IMHO) but an upgrade from Shakira‘s 2010 World Cup track, “Waka Waka.” Give them both a listen below and weigh in afterward.
