The 2017 American Music Awards were handed out Sunday night, honoring the best in music this year.

Bruno Mars led the way in nominations with eight for the world's biggest fan-voted awards show. The "24K Magic" singer also took home the top prize, Artist of the Year, beating out The Chainsmokers, Drake, Kendrick Lamar, and Ed Sheeran.

Mars wasn't on hand to accept his award and instead sent a hilarious video of himself riding in what appeared to be a van.

"I wish I could be partying with y’all, but I’m a million miles away right now in a f—— minivan," the singer, who's currently on tour, quipped.

Drumroll please…. ?? ?? ??
