The Wanted proved they are more than capable of giving their rivals a run for their money as they took to the stage at the American Music Awards on Sunday night.
Max George, Nathan Sykes, Tom Parker, Jay McGuiness and Siva Kaneswaran wowed as they performed their latest hit, I Found You, at the annual music event in Los Angeles.
And the boys seemed thrilled with the reception they received from the audience, with ‘#TheWantedkilledtheAMAs’ later trending on Twitter.
Nathan tweeted: ‘Just got a standing ovation at our first AMAs. I’m speechless.’
Meanwhile, Tom admitted he couldn’t believe how far the group had come in the past two years, writing: ’2 years ago we were playing school tours up and down the UK. Now we’re performing and nominated at the AMA’s #privileged.
‘Favourite moment of my career so far!! #AMAs.’
And it would seem Max was keen on celebrating the performance with a spot of partying.
Prior to taking to the stage, he tweeted: ‘So day ahead is…. Food… Rehearsal… Food… Red carpet… AMA performance… Mingle.. After parties…who knows. The dots mean beer btw.’
