[ENT] Jennifer Lopez, Dua Lipa, and Cara Delevingne bring the sparkle on the red carpet of the 2020 AMAs

The biggest names in music are set to have their work recognized during the 2020 American Music Awards held at the Los Angeles’ Microsoft Theater on Sunday.

And many of the night’s attendees, including megastar Jennifer Lopez, pop princess Dua Lipa, and model Cara Delevingne, strutted their stuff on the ceremony’s socially-distanced red carpet. 

Lopez, 51, turned heads as she showcased her famously fit physique in a glistening silver get-up.

The On The Floor singer’s evening wear consisted of a plunging cowl neck top and a  matching maxi skirt that featured a dramatic slit down one leg.

She added a bit of height to her 5foot5inch frame in a pair of strappy heels that were made to match her award show ensemble.

Taking a note out of Kim Kardashian’s book, Lopez decided to rock a ‘wet’ hair look that perfectly framed her enviably sculpted face. 

Dua Lipa, 25, had her signature assets on full display in a quirky white mini dress that was decked out into in multi-toned rhinestones.

The gems formed various images of starfish on Dua’s figure-hugging silhouette and dominated the cups of her bustier top.

The Hallucinate songstress had her raven tresses styled behind her ears and secured with a clip that matched the chain choker around her neck.

To complete the look, Dua slipped her feet into a pair of silver platform heels that allowed her to show off her fresh pedicure.

Despite rising COVID-19 numbers rising across the country, organizers for the award show have taken several precautions to make it as safe an event as possible.

Cara fearlessly played with bold colors by applying pink and purple shadows around her ice blue eyes and a neon coral lipstick to her pout. 

A Dick Clark Productions spokesperson told Rolling Stone on Saturday: ‘We have rigorous Covid-19 safety guidelines and protocols in place — approved by the unions and with guidance from L.A. County Department of Public Health — that are beyond what is required.’

Anyone who is entering the venue was tested in advanced and will continue to be tested throughout the production until wrap.

Facial coverings were also required for anyone not on stage inside of the venue with the one exception being background dancers who will also be required to wear masks.

‘When artists are not on stage singing, presenting, or accepting an award, they will be wearing personal protective equipment (PPE). Additionally, we disinfect our set every evening and in between performances during pre-production, rehearsals and in the live show.’

The Colombian singer, 26, layered his suit jacket over a crisp white dress shirt that he left slightly unbuttoned.

He is currently one of four remaining celebrity contestants set to compete during Monday evening’s Dancing With The Stars finale on ABC.

Lewis Capaldi kept comfortable for the ceremony, but brought every inch of his over-the-top personality to the red carpet.

The singer-songwriter, 24, knocked out some quirky poses for the shutterbugs before heading inside the venue. 

And Nelly oozed confidence in a pair of black leather trousers that had blue and red stripes running down each leg.

The 24-year-old made his stylish plaid trousers the focus of his look by throwing on a plain black sweater and a pair of combat boots.

Once inside the Microsoft Theater, Dobrik stopped to take a silly snap with a cardboard cut-out of pop sensation Justin Bieber. 

Entertainment Tonight co-host Cassie DiLaura put her best foot forwards in a pair of nude pumps and some sexy black leather pants.

Cassie gave her ensemble a pop of color by tossing on a bright red avant-garde top.
