Justin Bieber took home the coveted "Artist of the Year" prize at last night's American Music Awards (AMAs) in Los Angeles. The pop star also won "Favorite Pop/Rock Male Artist" and "Favorite Pop/Rock Album" trophies.
Bieber, who attended the event with his mother Pattie Mallette, dragged her on stage when he recieved the night's most anticipated award. "This is my mom, she's little but she's beautiful...I wanna thank you for just always believing in me...This is amazing," he told the crowd.
Skirting around rumors that he and Selena Gomez broke up, he told fans, "As long as you guys keep believing in me... I wanna always make you proud." According to E! Online, the pair were spotted together at an after-party.
Performers at the event included The Wanted, Kelly Clarkson, Ke$ha, No Doubt, Christina Aguilera, Taylor Swift and Pink. South Korean pop sensation PSY and MC Hammer did a "Too Legit To Quit" mash-up, and Stevie Wonder paid tribute to the late Dick Clark, who created the AMAs.
