Bieber won three awards, including Artist of the Year (despite the fact that he’s Canadian). He took time to thank his “haters” and even brought his mother on stage to acknowledge her role in his success as well.
Nicki Minaj won two awards and performed her new single “Freedom” and joined Bieber on stage to perform “Beauty and a Beat”.
But the best performance of the night goes to Psy who performed “Gangham Style” and even brought out MC Hammer to add a little more excitement (as if it was needed) to the performance. I guess I’ve been under a rock lately because it was my first time ever hearing of him. It was really cool to see all the celebrities in the audience dancing along with him. Check out his performance up top!
The 40th anniversary show was held in Los Angeles at the Nokia Theater there was a special tribute to Dick Clark, the show’s founder, done by the legendary Stevie Wonder.
