5 Seconds of Summer are in it to win it – and they scored at tonight's American Music Awards.

The boy band gave a rousing performance of The Romantics' oft-covered 1979 single “What I Like About You” at tonight's big show, and it was hard to deny the propulsive energy they brought to it, whether you count yourself as a fan or not. “Green Day Lite”? Sure. But you can't say it was bad. Dammit.
