The 2010 American Music Awards took place 2 days ago at the Nokia Theatre in Los Angelese, Carlifornia. The star studded event saw Justin Bieber make history!



A handful for Justin Bieber… 

It was yet another great night for youngster Justin Bieber who walked away with 4 awards including the artist of the year award, making him the yungest artist ever to bag the award. His “mentor/bestfriend/big brother (as he puts it himself) Usher took home 2 awards (making him, in my books the comeback artist of 2010). From what I could see, the awards weren’t the best ever edition hosted. Performances included soon-to-be-mother Pink, Usher, Justin Bieber, Rihanna (who cannot sing live at all), Katy Perry, the Black Eyed Peas, Diddy Dirty Money, Kid Rock, Bon Jovi and Taylor Swift (rolls eyes) amongst others. I thought that most of the award winners were predicatble (side-eyes justin Bieber) but nonetheless they were well deserved. The performances could have been better (what happened to Young Money, Nicki Minaj or Beyonce performing???). I get the whole ” giving other artists a chance” excuse but sometimes it’s best to stick to what works best. Anyway enough about me and my judgements of the show…below is a full list of the winners.
