    I can’t believe Adele didn’t win anything.

  • S

    So are the winners decided by simply album sales? so the winners can be figured out by just looking at year-end sales and charts?

    Im glad Gaga won at least 2 awards for Dance! Great album.

  • lola

    i hate adele. she’s soooooooooo stupid girl

  • boo!

    First, it’s 2012 Jared, not 2011. No more late night blogging! Second, can you post more performances. I didn’t get to watch!

  • boo!

    Oh, and I’m glad 4 finally won an award because people really downplayed how awesome that album was because of that stupid Run the World (Girls) song.

  • hmmm

    Holy Sh!t 12. Adele rocks

  • el toro bumingo

    What’s with Adele? She seems to dominate the Billboards music awards. Too bad, I prefer male singers :)

  • twfan

    Darn! The Wanted didn’t win anything! >.<
    Adele, that's ENOUGH! geesh!

  • Hamed

    coldplay rocks! :X

  • Oh Yeah

    @ #1 – If u look closer you will see that Adele won in the Song Awards Category!!!!!!!!!!

  • Oh Yeah

    and Album and Artists Categories. Wow did you read above before you wrote that?

    Adele did Great Be Happy!

  • appnp

    Sheesh, there are so many categories everyone’s bound to get ONE award!

  • Oh Yeah

    LOL so Rihanna got 13 Nominations and won 1 Award???? HAhahahah

  • Lona

    This is ridiculous. Rihanna should’ve won more categories, and the fact that they’re totally ignoring Jennifer Lopez just because they had a problem to fulfill her demands last year puts a lot of question marks on their credibility. “On The Floor”, “I’m into you”, “Papi”, and “Dance Again” are all smash hits, and JLo’s success is undeniable.

  • Pam

    this award looks like a dildo. check it out

  • aimee

    man i wish the wanted got an award! they’re gonna be huge the next coming year. just wait!

  • marc

    @Oh Yeah: from where you know rihanna got 13 nominations? are you one of this bitter girls who read everything about a star just to hate on them ? oh tell us how many awards you got?

  • Marie

    @Oh Yeah I think Emily was being sarcastic. ;)
