The 2012 American Music Awards brought together the very best in music ... or at least the biggest names on teenagers' playlists. In any case, it was awesome!

EVERYONE was there, and the winners and performers included fan favorites from across the pop music spectrum. So who was Sunday's brightest standout?

Not surprisingly, America proved it still has a bad case of Bieber Fever.

The teen dominated the AMAs, winning Artist of the Year and two other honors. Amid the ongoing Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez drama, his mom was his date.

"I wanted to thank you for always believing in me," he told Pattie Mallette, adding that it's "hard growing up with everyone watching me" and asked that people continue to.

My take on the AMA's:
I can see why all the girls have Bieber Fever. Justin is adorable. What a loving son to bring his "little" mom on stage with him.
Heartwarming to see "Super talents" Michael Jackson & Whitney Houston remembered.
Shame on AMA for not seating Kari in the front row when Dick Clark Prod. Co. produces the show! It was obvious she was straining to see the stage, when they did the tribute to her deceased husband.
Christina & Pink proved that curvy is sexy & represents the average woman in America. The former waif look only represented a mental disorder. Cindy Lauper's youthful face hasn't aged in 30 yrs.
Am I alone in my opinion that Taylor Swift would make a better model with her good looks than a singer, and save the record deals for singers with real talent and a unique style?
Nice ending surprise to see MC Hammer is back! -Cheri Woods
