Among Bieber's prizes Sunday night was artist of the year. He beat mentor Usher and became the award's youngest recipient. The 16-year-old heartthrob also walked away with the favorite male artist and breakthrough artist awards.
While the show was filled with a bevy of live performances from artists including Miley Cyrus, Rihanna, Bon Jovi and Ke$ha, the most anticipated of the evening was that of the old boy bands. The two groups (which will be going on tour soon) closed the night with a vocal mash-up of each group's greatest hits and fancy choreography that had the audience on its feet singing and dancing along.
Watch the performance below.
