American Music Awards Winners 2012

Announcing the Winners of the 2012 American Music Awards

The American Music Awards are mostly about the performances (and trust me, there were loads), but they also made some time to pass out a couple of trophies between all that singing and dancing. Justin Bieber and Usher were the night's biggest winners, but other fan favorites like Taylor Swift, Nicki Minaj, and Carrie Underwood were honored as well.

Be sure to check out all the pictures from the night, then see the list of winners when you read more.
