The 2019 American Music Awards were Sunday night and honestly, it was the best one yet.

The red carpet and performances were, of course, star-studded, but the female domination was incredible and a huge moment for women in the industry.

In case you missed the show, these were the most notable moments of the entire night.

Selena Gomez opened the show

Selena started the 2019 AMAs off with her highly emotional new ballad, "Lose You To Love Me" and followed it with her new single "Look At Her Now."

Ciara hosted the show

Not only did Ciara do a phenomenal job as host, but she performed her song "Melanin" alongside La La and Esther Dean. Also, she looked incredible in all of her looks.

Lizzo performed "Jerome"

Lizzo left everyone, and I mean, EVERYONE, emotional during her performance of "Jerome" at the AMAs. During her inspirational monologue before the start and throughout the entirety of the song, it was a passionate and heartfelt few minutes that we ALL needed.

Billie Eilish won her first (and second) American Music Awards

Billie took home awards for both Best New Artist and Favorite Alternative Rock Artist. She then took the stage and lit it on fire in her performance of "All The Good Girls Go To Hell," with her brother Finneas by her side on keyboard and guitar.

Taylor Swift won Artist of the Decade and five other awards

Along with Artist of the Decade, she won Artist of the Year, Favorite Music Video, Favorite Female Pop/Rock Artist, Favorite Pop/Rock Album, and Favorite Adult Contemporary Artist. No big deal or anything.

She now is the proud winner of 29 AMAs which is the most awards ever won, beating Michael Jackson's record of 23 awards.

Taylor Swift performed a mashup of her old music and new

This performance was iconic many reasons, but most importantly, it was so important because she was able to perform her old music that she was originally forbidden from performing by Scott Borchetta and Scooter Braun.

Taylor brought up Halsey and Camilla Cabello to sing "Shake It Off" with her

It was a huge shock to see these two join Taylor on stage but quite a pleasant surprise to see some more girl power killing it for the evening.

Shania Twain performed some of her greatest hits

If you didn't see this performance, you need to watch it. Post Malone enjoyed it probably more than anyone in the room.

Toni Braxton performed and for some reason looks like she's 35

I didn't know that I needed this performance until it happened. "Un-Break My Heart" is a classic and seeing it live was such an iconic moment.

Kesha performed a new song and surprised us with an old one

Kesha performed "Raising Hell" with Big Freedia and surprised the audience with a performance of "Tik Tok." Kesha seemed to poke fun at Kanye West's "Sunday services" by saying that this was her version of a Sunday service prior to singing "Raising Hell."

Camilla Cabello performed THREE times

Not only did she perform "Shake It Off" with Taylor, she sang "Seniorita" with boyfriend Shawn Mendes and then by herself performing her song "Living Proof." Talk about owning the stage.

Cardi B won best rap artist

Cardi was up against Drake and Post Malone, all of whom have huge fanbases, so it was so awesome to see her come out victorious.

"I haven't been able to get out of the 'talking phase' with anyone."

The reality is, there's no part of life the pandemic hasn't affected. Whether it's your work life, your home life, your social life, or your love life, coronavirus (COVID-19) is wreaking havoc on just about everything — not to mention people's health.

So, some of Swoon's creators sought out to hear from various individuals on how exactly their love lives have been affected since quarantine began.

We have all been there. Mindlessly scrolling through social media and then we see that post. We see someone we once saw a future with creating it with someone else. However this time it was really different. A lot of times when we say we are happy for someone we don't really mean it.

Affirmations affirm beliefs that we are in need of strengthening. They help up to focus on goals that we are striving for or on a powerful part of ourselves that we need a little reminder is within us.

They specifically focus on positive outcomes or belief systems that we're working to solidify, rather than solely focusing action on eradicating something "bad" or "wrong" from your life.

Nordstrom's Biggest Sale Has The Most Legendary Deals On Luxury Beauty Brands We've Ever Seen

Counting down the days to the Chanel box set gracing my front door.

I oftentimes (excessively) use the excuse of my job as a writer to justify my excessive spending habits.

I needed the new Huda Beauty palette before anyone else in the name of journalistic integrity. It was my job to test out the new Francis Kurkdjian fragrance to make sure I could tell people whether or not it was truly worth the splurge (it was).

Some people are so good at downplaying their sadness that even they don't realize how much they do it. When you ask them how they are they will always say that they are good, even when they aren't. They exhaust themselves by plastering an energetic and carefree persona in the spaces that you watch them in because at least to you they can control how they appear. They can pretend to be the happy person they want to be when everyone is telling them how funny and bubbly they are all the time.

Mental health is not an easy endeavor. It's not a fad. It's not a bandwagon that you can hop on and off of whenever you want to. Your yearly dose of sadness is not depression. I'm not here to define what depression — or anxiety, or any other type of mental health issue looks like — but I will tell you what it's not.

I sometimes look back at the days when I had anorexia and think to myself what would have happened if I had taken another bite? Nowadays, I spend days dreading over my figure and wondering if the old sundresses and outfits even fit. I tell myself that they do, but I feel like reality holds a different truth.
