It hasn't exactly been a relaxing pre-holiday season for Justin Bieber. And the drama isn't even over for this young singer.

But Bieber isn't letting the controversy get him down, or change his plans. The guy just wants to spend Christmas under the mistletoe with you. With you. Baby, with you.

Watch below as Justin keeps his American Music Awards performance simple (and sexy!). There's no dancing, no crazy special effects. It's just this iconic artist, dressed in white, singing to his screaming fans. Okay, and maybe to Selena Gomez, as well. Enjoy now:

Jennifer Lopez made like Britney Spears at last night's American Music Awards, donning a revealing, nude-colored outfit during a performance that combined hits "Until It Beats No More," "Papi" and "On the Floor" into a single fun medley.

The look resembled Britney's buzzed-about costume at the 2000 MTV VMAs, but the sound and the movements were 100% J. Lo.

Upon accepting the trophy for Favorite Latin Artist, Lopez told the crowd that "it's been a really amazing year in so many ways. It's been up and down and just exciting and overwhelming."

Sounds a lot like her performance. Take it in now:

At last night's American Music Awards, there was Taylor Swift and there was everyone else. Donning an appropriately gold gown, she was the gold standard Sunday.

Swift took home top honors at the AMAs as the artist of the year.

"This is one of the craziest things that has ever happened to me," the singer, who also won that honor the last time this award show was held in 2009, said.

"Thank you to the fans. Please, never change."

Swift was also recognized as the favorite country female artist (a foregone conclusion), and her 2010 record Speak Now was dubbed the top country album.

The audience at L.A.'s Nokia Theatre was treated to a star-studded night of electronic, explosive, backing track-assisted performances, closed out by LMFAO.

The group delivered an appropriate medley of “Party Rock Anthem” and “Sexy And I Know It,” featuring a dance cameo by none other than Justin Bieber ...

So who else won big at the 2011 American Music Awards? Were your favorite artists recognized, or snubbed? See the list of winners right after the jump:

In a recent interview with W Magazine, Willow Smith says she can't do anything without her mother's permission.

Therefore, we'll direct this question at Jada Pinkett Smith: What the heck were you thinking letting your 10-year old daughter out of the house in this outfit?!?

The singing sensation attended last night's American Music Awards with her family and showed up in an ensemble that can only be described as uglier than Michael Lohan's attempts to capitalize off his daughter. But, hey, at least this isn't the most embarrassing piece of news concerning someone named Willow to come out today...

What do you think? Willow Smith's outfit is...

Chart-topping friends Katy Perry and Rihanna both performed at Sunday's American Music Awards. Who will perform better in a test of style supremacy?

Katy looked adorable as ever on the red carpet, so much so that we can't help wonder if that dress may have helped salvage this rendition of "Firework."

Meanwhile, Rihanna's performance to open the show was a good one, but does her latest style experiment measure up? Vote on the fashion champ below:

  • Gorgeous Katy
  • Red, Curly Rihanna

Who looked better?

Considering Justin Bieber was named Artist of the Year, it's safe to say the American Music Awards skewed toward a younger generation last night.

But try telling that to Bon Jovi. The veteran band is releasing a Greatest Hits album this winter, replete with four new songs. It performed one of them at the ceremony over the weekend, transitioning from "What Do You Got?" to  ''You Give Love a Bad Name'' and ''It's My Life."

It was an impressive display from one of the world's most legendary bands. Check out Jon and friends in video and in photographs now:

Ke$ha treated viewers of the American Music Awards to a typical live performance last night:

Poor singing, unusual outfits and many visual effects.

Indeed, this singer will never have the vocal range of Christina Aguilera (on display at the AMAs HERE) nor the emotional depth of Taylor Swift (as evidenced by this performance), but that's not what Ke$a is aiming for. She just wants to entertain. You tell us: Did she accomplish that goal at the this event?

We love Katy Perry personally and think some of her songs are really catchy, but her live singing skills were a bit suspect at the American Music Awards.

It's hard to watch her rendition of "Firework" (below) and not think that, but that's just our opinion. What do you think? Did she knock it out of the park?

In her defense, at least she TRIED to sing live, which is more than we can say for some of the no-talent hacks who masquerade as musicians. Also, the boys' choir was a nice touch, and that tear-away dress? An even nicer touch ...

Who knew one stage to hold so much cuteness?

At last night's American Music Awards, Justin Bieber may have won big and Rihanna may have opened impressively, but the show closed with the the official formation of NKOTBSB.

That's right, folks, The New Kids on the Block and Backstreet Boys performed a medley of hits together, giving fans a preview of their upcoming 2011 summer tour. From "Step By Step" to "I Want It That Way," viewers were transported to a more innocent era, one we didn't even realize we missed until these iconic groups took us back in time...

All you people can't you see, can't you see... NKOTBSB!

Just days removed from releasing her new album, Loud, Rihanna was tasked with opening the American Music Awards, which she said was "a lot of pressure."

Her seven-minute performance - a medley of "Love the Way You Lie Part II," new song "What's My Name?" and "Only Girl in the World" - certainly delivered.

After beginning a cappella on "Love the Way You Lie," the Barbadian star turned the performance into an island-themed extravaganza you can watch here:
