    Justin Bieber as Artist of the Year makes this whole list irrelevant. I mean was there no one else to represent American music this year, that’s just tragic.

  • rose

    disgusting pig nicki minaj winning ANY award makes the whole show a complete joke.

    Congratulaytions to Maroon 5/Adam Levine t for winning AMA. I am so happy to see you getting recognition for your great songs. Love Adam L. and The Voice

    I thought Jason Aldean will win as Country Music Male Artist. He performed so good at The Voice.

  • lwwl

    nah, music awards are record manager bid for promote their singers anyway, some of these singers nothing impressive anyway. They well known by media doesn’t mean they were really great singers. There were many great singers deserve to win awards, they don’t because they didn’t have enough money to put their name in the submission list.

  • cool

    WOW one direction didnt even win 1 thats suprising

  • Danny

    Carly Rae Jepsen best new artist? and Justin Beiber artist of the year? Ha! That’s how you know these awards have no value

  • kelly

    They should just end this award show. Singers don’t exist nowadays.

  • LPU_K

    LINKIN PARK! They deserved that award so much! I cannot waitt for their next album!

    The show was nothing about singing individually, all of the backup singers to try to make the main singer sound good. It didn’t work, it was a lot of yelling and screaming, that is not music. Horrible show.

    I was a little surprised that One Direction didn’t win any awards at all. Everyone that did win definitely did deserve winning, and congratulations to them all. I was very excited to see Linkin Park win, because I absolutely love them. I completely spaced out that the awards were on last night, so this morning I watched it on my DISH Hopper with the PrimeTime Anytime feature. It automatically records the four major networks primetime shows, so I didn’t have to worry about missing it. I was able to see all the performances before heading out the door for my shift at DISH. The best performance last night was PSY and MC Hammer. They really ended the show with a bang.

    How can Taylor be artist of the year- I guess quality of singing isn’t part of the award. Miranda and Carrie are much more awesome.
