Bieber has mother of all nights as he tops awards

BIEBER fever broke out at the American Music Awards with the teenager dominating proceedings.

He took three trophies, including artist of the year. His mother joined him onstage as he collected the award, beating Rihanna, Maroon 5, Katy Perry and Drake.

"I wanted to thank you for always believing in me," the young star said addressing his mother.

The 18-year-old also won the honour in 2010. He said it's "hard growing up with everyone watching me" and asked that people continue to believe in him.

But the teenager, who brought his mum as a date, also got in some grinding with Nicki Minaj and a kiss on the neck from presenter Jenny McCarthy.

"Wow. I feel violated right now," he said, laughing.

"I did grab his butt," McCarthy said backstage.
