It was a good night for Taylor Swift at the American Music Awards.

While the singer didn't dominate the evening like a certain shaggy-haired 16-year old, she was named the top Female Country Artist on the planet. Swift also performed her single "Back to December," mixing in a bit of One Republic’s “Apologize" with the ballad.

Watch the following video of this critically acclaimed performance and then click on photos of Taylor on stage at the event:

While Justin Bieber won Artist of the Year at last night's American Music Awards, the Black Eyed Peas proved themselves worthy of their Best Pop/Rock Group title as well. Their performance of "This Time (The Dirty Bit)" was ... something else.

Something else is the only way to put it.

The Peas Perform

There's no comparison to the flashy, glow-in-the-dark spectacle accompanying their new single, which borrows the chorus of the Dirty Dancing theme song, "(I've Had) The Time of My Life," as will.i.am and Fergie crooned to throughout.

It was the freestyle dance moves and dancers wearing box-shaped headpieces that really stole the show, though. At the end, will.i.am plugged the band's new album, saying, "November 30, The Beginning. Welcome to the future!"

Bring it on. Watch their performance after the jump!

Miley Cyrus did not win any American Music Awards last night.

But the singer did win over the crowd with a rendition of "Love and Forgiveness," a song off the album "Can't Be Tamed." Multiple sources confirm Miley originally planned to cover “Every Rose Has Its Thron” on stage, but made a last-minute switch due to a certain rumor.

Probably the right choice, don't you think? Check out the following video of Cyrus in action, followed by a trio of performance photos:

Fresh off her stunning elimination from Dancing With the Stars, which airs its final performances of the season tonight, Brandy stepped out for the AMAs Sunday.

Despite the fact that she clearly should be competing for the title and not watching with us tonight, her sparkly pants brought a little of the Mirror Ball with her.

When Ne-Yo and The Situation clash in a celebrity style showdown ... actually, that's never happened before to our knowledge. All bets are off in this face-off.

Fresh off the birth of his first child with Monyetta Shaw, Ne-Yo performed (and looked dapper to say the very least) Sunday at the American Music Awards.

The Situation, fortunately for those with the ability to hear, did not perform any music, although after Angelina Pivarnick's debut single, the bar's set low.

Simply put, Justin Bieber owned the American Music Awards last night.

This 16-year old became the youngest singer to win Artist of the Year, adding that trophy to a haul that also included Pop/Rock Male, Breakthrough Artist and Album of the Year for "My World 2.0."

While on stage to accept the top honor, Bieber invited Usher to join him, referring to the R&B star as "not only my mentor but my best friend and my big brother." It was a very nice moment, only topped for many by Justin's rendition of "Pray," a single off his upcoming acoustic album:

Other major winners at the AMAs included:
