American Music Awards 2012: Complete Winners List

Share |

Justin Bieber was named favorite artist of the year -the night’s top award – Sunday at the American Music Awards 2012. It was his third prize of the night.
The 18-year-old teen idol pulled his mother, Pattie Malette, onstage to help him accept the award. He said:

This is my mom. She’s little, but she’s beautiful.”

Bieber won the first award of the night -favorite pop/rock male artist – and he accepted with the comment:

I want to say this is for all the haters who thought that I was just here for one or two years. I feel like I’m going to be here for a very long time.”

Rapper Nicki Minaj also was a multiple winner, taking awards for favorite rap/hip hop album (for Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded) and favorite rap/hip hop artist. She and Rihanna went into the ceremony with the most nominations – four each. Rihanna, who was on tour and did not attend, won an award for favorite soul/R&B album (for Talk That Talk).

Taylor Swift won her fifth consecutive award for favorite country female artist. She said:

This is unreal. I want to thank the fans. You guys are the ones who voted on this.”

Other awards went to Linkin Park for best alt rock artist, Luke Bryan for best male country artist and Usher for best male soul/R&B artist.

Usher opened the ceremony. Dressed in black leather pants, a black T-shirt and red high tops, the singer stepped onto the stage from a swirl of smoke and launched into a medley of songs, including Numb, Climax and Can’t Stop, Won’t Stop.

Minaj performed her new single Freedom. She was in an all-white get-up, including fur coat and pink hair. The scene was ghostly and snowy, as a choir also in white joined her onstage. One background singer stole the performance, belting semi-high notes as Minaj looked on.

Swift gave a masquerade-themed performance of the pop song I Knew You Were Trouble. She sang onstage in a light dress while dancers wore mostly black. But then she changed into a red corset and black skirt, matching their dark mood. She even danced and sang on the floor as lights flickered throughout the performance.

Kelly Clarkson also hit the stage, making a nod to her American Idol roots with a number on her dress and three people in judge chairs looking on as she sang Miss Independent. Then she went into Since U Been Gone, Stronger and Catch My Breath.

Party girl Ke$ha was glammed up on the red carpet, rocking long, flowy blonde hair and a light pink dress. Nicki Minaj and Christina Aguilera were blonde bombshells, too: Minaj’s hair was busy and full of volume and she sported a neon sleeveless dress. Aguilera wore a blonde bob cut and in purple dress that matched her eye shadow.

The South Korean Internet sensation PSY closed the show with a performance of his viral hit “Gangnam Style,” and was joined on stage by surprise guest MC Hammer! Psy tweeted before taking the stage:

How lucky I am!! Gonna be the Closing of #AMAs!! #HammerTime.”

Earlier in the night, Psy hit the red carpet and even took time to sign autographs for fans before heading inside to enjoy the show.
