Last night saw the 40th American Music Awards hosted in LA. Now, despite it being the “American” music awards, there is still a chance for us Brits to win a prize or two - as Adele proved, when she took home the gong for Favourite Adult Contemporary Artist.
NICE ONE 'DELLERZ.
One Direction, on the other hand, weren’t so lucky. Following their double whammy at the EMAs in Frankfurt last week, we were expecting the boys to pick up a couple of prizes - but they came away with zilch, despite being nominated for three awards.
The guys were included in the Favourite Pop/Rock band, Favourite Pop/Rock Album and New Artist of the year categories, but lost out to Maroon 5, Justin Bieber and Carly Rae Jepsen.
Justin Bieber was the success story of the night, following his EMA hat-trick by scoring another three awards to add to his growing collection.
Rihanna and Taylor Swift also continued their award glory, picking up one each, while Nicki Minaj won Favourite Rap/Hip Hop Artist and Favourite Rap/Hip Hop Album.
