Sunday night's American Music Awards had no shortage of high-energy performances — including sets from Ke$ha and Taylor Swift — but who took home the hardware?
Justin Bieber and Carly Rae Jepsen (who both performed as well) took home some big awards, including Jepsen nabbing New Artist of the Year and Bieber being named Artist of the Year as well as his other two nominations (Favorite Male Artist - Pop/Rock and Favorite Album - Pop/Rock). Swift hugged seatmate Nicki Minaj when she won for Favorite Female Artist - Country, and Minaj hopped up after that to accept Favorite Artist - Rap/Hip-Hop.
