    I’m no fan of Justin BUT I admire the fact that this new batch of young artists are mostly really talented: Jonas Bros, Miley, Selena, Demi and a slew of others under 20, all play musical instruments, can read music and some of them even write their own lyrics. Their voices might not be “there” yet. But remember, these are teenagers. Their voices, like their bodies, are still maturing. I hope this is becomes a new, permanent trend and that the talentless “Britneys” become a thing of the past.

    And there is the offficial death of the music industry…

  • Caitlyn

    @African Queen: Have you heard Britney and Christina ‘s voices at the age of 10, 11 and 12 were more mature than the Miley’s, Selena’s, Justin’s and the rest of today’s stars. Today’s teen stars do not have to have talent, all it is good looks. Britney is far from talentless have you seen her Live? the dancing, lights and her stage presence only rivals that of Janet, MJ or Madonna. She writes poems, songs, plays piano and guitar not to mention she also produces. So I hope this moment of allowing talentless wannabes into the industry quickly disappears. Oh god and do not say todays stars sing better than the 90′s and early 00′s.

    Why is everyone rocking the MJ one arm band look? Will-I-am and now this kid?!?!? Why can’t people get their own identities?

  • Ms Barleo Gaga Fan

    Ladies and Gentlemen, music is officially dead.

  • Emma

    To all the idiot girls who support Justin Bieber – you are to blame for the death of music!

  • anthony

    This kid beat out Eminem… WTF! He should be nominated at the kids awards not the American Music Awards. No wonder I don’t listen to the radio or watch award shows anymore.. The popular stuff in the music industry is 90% crap these days

  • African Queen

    @Caitlyn: Golly, no! I didn’t mean these particular artists I mentioned are better that Christina or the others you mention. What I meant is that today’s kids, in general, are taking their music lessons more seriously, maybe thanks to JB, Miley, and the others. Or maybe it is the parents who are pushing kids to not drop out of piano lessons..? Who knows. Britney is a great dancer and a great ENTERTAINER. The best in the world probably. But she is no musician.

  • zzzz

    OH. MY. GOD. That was baaaaaad.


    he really cant sing can he?????

    that was woeful

  • http://haha haha


  • kmtd

    the winners were chosen by the fans.
    if people think other artists deserved the award more than justin there was certainly ways for them to make it so… like.. vote perhaps?
    he won for a reason.
    just saying.

  • amamyass

    American music award is a f**king joke!!!!!!!

  • boo


    sorry, i have to disagree with you there..hands down, xtina has a beautiful, one in a million kinda voice, but not Britney..she’s a great dancer, or she was,.great entertainer but she’s no musician..her voice always sound auto tuned and everybody knows the she queen of lip sync..i’m not a fan of all today’s young artists just FYI

  • smh

    Y’all should be ashamed a kid has already achieved more in his life than you have and ever will. HOW ABOUT GETTING OFF YOUR BITTER FAAAAAT AS*SES AND ACTUALLY DOING SOMETHING PRODUCTIVE?


    Rooting for you kiddo :)

  • http://justjared Mjforlife

    Leave Michael Jackson out of this.

  • Marie

    Oooh go home sweety .. Please, I’m begging you !

  • jen

    Not a fan of this kid at all – however I did like when he thanked Michael Jackson, because he was the first one to be real about it – it is true (no matter what you may personally think of who MJ was) – he did influence a generation and almost all of the artists now imitate him in a way or another either in their videos, dancing or how they dress, but no one ever acknowledges it. 1 point to Bieber in that respect.

    I’m sick of this kid! I don’t understand why people votes for him :S

  • SJC

    I don’t think that these kind of awards should be voted for by the public. It’ll always be the most popular musician that will win it and not necessarily the most talented. I’m sure JB would win the most popular musician award but I think the big awards should be voted by people in the business, like the Oscars are.

    I appreciate what JB has done at such a young age but I’m pretty sure that if he didn’t look the way he does, he wouldn’t have a career. I’m sick of seeing him every where and almost every major musician/artist is recording with him and I think they are basically cashing in.

    What he said about MJ is true – If it wasn’t for him, we wouldn’t have what we have today but again, I think JB is just trying to cash in on thanking MJ.

    I for one cannot wait until his star dims so that I don’t have to see something about him on the TV, Internet or shop I go in.

  • forgetMEnot

    The only fans this prick has is 6 year-olds.

  • Jokergurl

    I can’t believe he beat Eminem and Usher, especially EMINEM! I did like that he thanked Michael Jackson though. He’s just too young to receive this award I think.
