Justin Bieber cleaned up at last night’s American Music Awards as well putting on a pretty epic performance alongside his pal Nicki Minaj. Starting off with an acoustic version of As Long As You Love Me, which was pretty rad by the way, he took it up a notch with a high-energy performance of Beauty and a Beat with Nicki. Yes, there was some grinding going on. But that’s not all that happened with the Biebs during the night!

After the show, JB took the Twitter to give his thanks to his millions of fans, writing, "loss for words tonight. Like i said as long as you BELIEVE in me i will always try to make you proud. Thank you. tonight i will never forget.”

So what do you guys think about Bieber winning Artist of the year, was it well deserved or do you think one of the other contenders should have won — Rihanna, Katy Perry, Marron 5, Drake?
