American Music Awards: See the winners list here!

America proved its Bieber Fever was strong: The teen singer dominated the American Music Awards on Sunday night.

Bieber’s wins included the show’s top award, artist of the year. The singer’s mom joined him onstage as he collected the top award. He looked to his mom: “I wanted to thank you for always believing in me.”

He said it’s “hard growing up with everyone watching me” and asked that people continue to believe in him.

The 18-year-old also won favorite pop/rock album for Believe, and male artist.

He performed two songs at the award show, one stripped and another upbeat with Nicki Minaj. As Bieber won his second award, he was kissed on the neck by Jenny McCarthy, who presented the award.

Here is a full list of the winners:  READ FULL STORY

Some say rock music is dying.

But no one told that to Neon Trees. The Utah-formed band earned their first Top 10 single on Billboard‘s Hot 100 this week with “Everybody Talks,” which jumped from No. 11 to No. 6 and sold 102,000 downloads.

Neon Trees formerly reached No. 13 with their 2010 Glee-approved hit “Animal,” but “Everybody Talks,” with its fuzzy pop-tinged chorus  and infectious wails, is proving to be more of a chart powerhouse.

In a pop music world dominated by dancy synths, it’s a testament to the continued viability of actual bands that two songs above “Everybody Talks” — fun.’s “Some Nights” (No. 5) and Maroon 5’s “One More Night” (No. 3) — are both doing so well.

“Everybody Talks” (which, for the record, I totally called back in April) has taken 25 weeks to reach the Top 10 (it also just hit No. 1 on Adult Pop Songs), and we’ll see if it climbs even higher in the future. For now, though, let’s check out the week’s other chart winners and losers: READ FULL STORY
