Justin Bieber wins big at the AMAs

Canadian singer Justin Bieber won all four of the American Music Awards for which he was nominated, including Breakthrough Artist of the Year and Artist of the Year — at 16, he’s the youngest act to ever be named Artist of the Year at the AMAs. Bieber’s mentor, Usher, won two awards, for Soul/R&B Album and Soul/R&B Male. Canadian Michael Bublé took home an award for Adult Contemporary Artist, while Lady Antebellum won for Country Band/Duo. The Black Eyed Peas were given the trophy for Pop/Rock Band, Taylor Swift won Country Female (her third time in a row) and Lady Gaga won for Pop/Rock Female. The two other awards Bieber took home were Pop/Rock Male and Pop/Rock Album for “My World 2.0,” which has sold almost two million copies in the United States alone since its release this year. Bieber also performed his song “Pray” during the ceremony, accompanying himself on piano.

    I like Usher, but since he’s inflicted this little child onto the world, he has slipped a notch in my books. I can’t wait to see what happens when Justin Bieber’s voice drops when puberty hits.
