All of the world's biggest pop stars & music makers attended the 2012 American Music Awards last night, and guess who topped the winners list? Everybody's favorite Canadian boy wonder Justin Bieber walked away with three AMAs, while Nicki Minaj snagged two awards. When it came to the performers, the AMAS pulled all the stops and had the world's best entertainers grace their stage. Ms. Minaj debuted her new song "Freedom", and the Biebs performed a medley of "As Long As You Love Me" and "Beauty And A Beat". Both Usher and Kelly Clarkson sang out their greatest hits, while Christina Aguilera decided to break out into three of her new singles from Lotus. We loved Ke$ha's wild performance of "Die Young", Pink's gorgeous Cirque Du Solei-inspired version of "Try", and of course Psy and rap legend MC Hammer's "Gangnam Style" dance party. What a night!
