|Justin Bieber performing at 2010 American Music Awards|
America, Land of Opportunity. America has spoken and its people have chosen Canadian teen sensation Justin Bieber as their Artist of the Year at ABC's 2010 American Music Awards. Pulling a complete shocker, 16 year-old Bieber became the youngest Artist ever to be award with the honour and he was a multiple winner this evening taking awards home for Favourite Pop/Rock Male Artist and Favourite Breakout Artist too. In accepting his award for Artist of the Year, Bieber asked his Mentor Usher to join him on stage. Usher too won an award for Favourite R&B Album (Raymond v. Raymond) earlier in the evening.
Other winners tonight included a straight-haired Taylor Swift who won Favourite Country Female Artist, The Black Eyed Peas who won Favourite Pop/Rock Group and Rihanna as Favourite R&B Female Artist.
