It was a big night for 18 year-old Justin Bieber, who took home 3 awards last night at the American Music Awards. Bieber was up against some of the biggest names in pop music including Katy Perry and Rihanna but still manages to snag the coveted Artist of the Year honor. He also took home favorite pop/rock make artist and favorite pop/rock album for his latest LP ‘Believe.’
Justin Bieber took a moment to thank his mother Pattie Mallette, during his first acceptance speech, dedicating the award to her and saying; “This is for all the haters who thought that maybe I was just here for one or two years, but I feel like I am going to be here for a very long time.”
Winners were chosen through online fan votes and were passed out last night during a live broadcast from the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles, which also featured performances by some of the biggest names in the pop music industry including Gangnam style rapper, Psy and Stevie Wonder.
