Why Justin Bieber Broke Records at AMA Awards

Everyone's favorite overgrown toddler Justin Bieber broke some serious records on Sunday night at the American Music Awards.

Bieber became the youngest person ever to win the Artist of the Year. He walked away with so many trophies, he couldn't even hold them all himself. He took home four accolades including Favorite Pop/Rock Male Artist, Favorite Album and Breakthrough Artist of the Year during the ceremony at the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles.

Accepting the Artist of the Year honor, the 16-year-old star thanked his mentor Usher and asked him to come up on stage. He said: "I really was embraced by a man named Usher Raymond. It would be only right if I invited him up here to share it with me."

Usher didn't do too bad himself, he took home Favorite Soul/R&B Male Artist and Favorite Soul/R&B Album, while rapper Eminem walked away with statuettes for Favorite Rap/Hip-Hop Male Artist and Favorite Rap/Hip-Hop Album.
