    i use to hate justin bieber but now i totally love him and yeah he totally desevered the awards and i don’t think 1D desevered any awards they really aren’t that good i don’t know what everybody is upsessing over!!! i mean their ok but really theirt not that good, go JUSTIN!!!!!!!!!!

  • hahaha124

    I love justin bieber and he did deserve to win. I am glad he bet 1D one some of those even though i like 1D. His performance was great.

    • LOVE1112

      You are soo right :)

  • Bella

    Ok so the reason why (I think) 1D didn’t win is because the AMA’s are geared toward people in their 15-25′s (males and females). 1D is more for 11-15 year old (girls). So yup. My reason.

    • Daichi

    How have these idiots all won prizes? Justin Bieber, prize pillock? Carly I-can’t-even-sing Rae Jepsen? What is wrong with the world today?

  • cheri

    I knew Justin Bieber was going to win, but he wasn’t very classy about it. He started his speech with “This is for all the haters out there”. That right there made me not like him. I completely spaced out that the awards were on last night, so this morning I watched it on my DISH Hopper with the PrimeTime Anytime feature. It automatically records the four major networks primetime shows, so I didn’t have to worry about missing it. I was able to see all the performances before heading out the door for my shift at DISH. I thought all the performances were good, and congratulations to all the winners!
