And a lot of people aren't happy about it.
Last night at the 2014 American Music Awards (23rd November) 'Fancy' singer Iggy Azalea collected two awards, one for 'Favourite Rap/ Hip-Hop Artist' and one for 'Favourite Rap/ Hip-Hop Album' for her debut album 'The New Classic.'
The Aussie beat fellow rappers Drake and Eminem in both categories to collect the gongs and gracefully referenced in her speech that "it means so much" that she had won the award against them (in spite of her feuding with Eminem this week over his controversial song lyrics.)
Although no.1 single 'Fancy' was dubbed the "song of the summer" by Billboard amongst many others and lead Iggy to takeover Lil' Kim as the female rapper with the longest-leading number one on the Billboard 100, a lot of people on Twitter weren't happy with the win.

Of course, some people thought that the two awards did go to the right person.
Do you think Iggy Azalea should have beaten Drake and Eminem?
