Usher was all smiles as he arrived on the red carpet at the NRJ Music Awards 2011 at the Palais des Festivals et des CongrÃ¨s in Cannes, France, over the weekend. And he had plenty reason to be. The R&B heartthrob picked up the award for International Male Artist of the Year.
Other winners at the 12th annual event included Lady Gaga and Beyoncé, whose collaborative video “Telephone” scored Music Video of the Year, while will.i.am and apl.de.ap of the Black Eyed Peas were honored with International Group/Duo of the Year and Concert of the Year. The sexy and newly single Shakira took home International Female Artist of the Year and International Song of the Year for “Waka Waka (This Time for Africa).”
