The on-again, off-again relationship of Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez completely overshadowed the AMAs itself, let alone the three awards he won at the event. 

Bieber performed a sober version of 'As Long As You Love Me', just him and a dude with guitar, and followed it with Beauty and the Beat with Nicki Minaj, a performance that saw him unable to leave his crotch alone. Anyway, aside from these interesting performances, Biebz cleaned right up, taking home Pop/Rock Album of the Year, Pop/Rock Artist of the Year and, most coveted prize of all, Artist of the Year. Amongst those awards he beat current tour-de-force Rihanna who is currently on her 777 tour, One Direction, and his own mentor, Usher. That's some serious pop-power. Biebz is great and all, but Artist of the Year? We don't quite agree. Perhaps he'll prove to earn the award in the next few years.

In other news, he and Selena Gomez who had split up a couple of weeks ago seem to be back together now, as they attended the AMA after party together, according to MTV. But his Mom was his #1 Lady as she was his date to the awards themselves. Bless him.
