Justin Bieber was the big winner at the 40th anniversary American Music Awards on Sunday. Not only did the teen idol share the stage with Nicki Minaj, he also went home with three awards including Artist of the Year. He brought up his mother and thanked Usher during his acceptance speech.

    Who cares about the rererelease of the same album…. It’s a pop album anyway lol. Alot of these artists were great. What was Nicki doing. No stage presence.

  6. Girl Bye

    why is rihanna in the Rnb category…AMA is a joke… give the award to a deserving RNB SINGER, not to Rihanna because you can’t decide Justin Bieber and Katy Perry

    This award show is a joke though. I’m not gonna say people like Nicki didn’t deserve awards souly because the show was based on votes. But 3 nominees in each section? i always thought they needed 5. Because there are some people more deserving of awards in there sections.
    Where is Frank Ocean, Miguel, and Elle Varner in the r&b sections. Where is Odd Future, Childish Gambino, and Kanye in the Hip-Hop sections. More people deserved Nominations


    AllAmerykhanBoy Reply:

    @miles, Nominations are by highest selling artist in the U.S.If they’re not selling high they are not getting nominated. and R&B has not been selling lately..


  9. YayNICKI

    Congratulations Nicki Minaj! 2 consecutive years in a row, double AMAs… keep up the hard work! :)


  10. Jade

    J. Cole should’ve won for both nominations… The respect the industry lacks for him is unbelievable. Congrats to Nicki, along w/ everyone who won, but she doesn’t even represent “Hip-Hop” anymore. Smh.


  11. Vicki

    Yay Nicki!! :)


  12. Add Joey Mannarino on Facebook!

    R&B is apparently for the FAKE R&B artists out there (with the exception of Beyonce)….”Talk That Talk” by Rihanna is NOT RnB! SMH!

    @#BEENTRILL, right but even being nominated in those divisions is a shame!!!!


    #missamerica Reply:

    @immabreakyourneckbitch!!!!, the music industry is a joke its a shame it has gotten this far


  14. leydyred

    Poor J.Cole :(
    He definitely deserved it much more

    Hip Hop is still alive though. Continue what youre doing!

    I Love Nicki, But She Doesn’t deserve to win Favorite Album – Rap/Hip-Hop, Tyga’s AlBum is Much Better. I’m Not hatin’ on the queen, I’m just tellin’ the truth


  16. #coleworld

    This just proves how low the music industry has gotten.. there are a lot more artists that deserved to win that are trying to improve this damaged industry.. its a shame that it has gotten to the point where we only care about how many records the artist has sold and forgotten about the meaning about songs and the stories they have told.


  17. #missamerica

    J cole should have won he deserve a lot more credit for the way he is changinging hip hop.


  18. Jay-Me

    All I can say is well done to Beyoncé & Usher. I ain’t made that Nicki won cause the Hip Hop tracks on Roman Roloaded were ok but the albumn as a whole ain’t Hip Hop. Rihanna winning anything is a joke let alone an award for best Soul/R&B album and for that garbage too. Sheesh.


  19. Morgan

    Why was Nicki in a category for Pop/Rock? Ok…nevermind. Stupid question.

    The biggest joke of the night was One Direction & J. Cole losing to Carly Rae Jepsen.

    Can’t even hate on Bieber. I’ve listened to that album and it encompasses a lot of genres.


  20. Justine

    Honestly, the rap category was weak: Drake, Tyga, Nicki.


  21. Justine

    She actually won for the Pop songs Starship and Pound the Alarm but they insist on keeping her in the Rap category. I’m sure she didn’t win for any of her rap songs.


  22. Justine

    Nicki is beginning to look her age: 30.


  23. Mikee_TM



  24. Lizzie

    Justin Bieber’s album was actually good so Artist of the year maybe as it is a personal decision for each fan..


  25. Kanye West

    lord have mercy


  26. Andy James

    Wow Wow Wow !! AMAs I am just speechless WTF is this world going to !!

    The 2012 American Music Awards was very terrible, and very horrible, it represented everything that is wrong with the music industry today. Congratulations to Nicki Minaj for winning Favorite Rap/Hip Hop Album of The Year, and Favorite Rap/Hip Hop Artist of The Year, but I felt like she didn’t deserve to win those awards this year. I believe Drake’s Take Care album, Nas’Life Is Good album, GOOD Music-Cruel Summer, Lupe Fiasco’s Food and Liquor 2: The Great American Rap Album Part 1, Rick Ross’God Forgives I Don’t album, and Common’s The Dreamer/The Believer album were all better albums than Nicki Minaj’s Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded album. I find it very terrible that Frank Ocean, Miguel, and Elle Varner didn’t win any of those R&B awards over Rihanna. Everybody who truly understands music will tell you that Rihanna is a mainstream pop artist, not an R&B artist. There should be three rap album catergories at the American Music Awards for now on starting next year. There should be Best Rap Album, Best Mainstream Rap Album, and Best Alternative Rap Album. That way, the winners would seem more credible and more real compare to this year’s winners.
