Since his split with girlfriend Selena Gomez, the teen sensation has been linked to a series of singers and supermodels but he had room for only one woman at the American Music Awards.

Justin (18) even dragged his mum Patty Malette on stage to help collect his Favourite Artist of the Year award – after he beat competition from Rihanna and Katy Perry.

Bieber, who won a total of three awards at last nights ceremony, pulled mum Patty onstage to help him accept the award.

“This is my mom. She's little, but she's beautiful,” said Bieber as he thanked his mum for believing in him.

The tender moment melted hearts as the young singer showed his appreciation to his mum who gave birth to the superstar at the age of 19 and was living in a hostel as she struggled to make ends meet.

The singer has his mum to thank for where he is today after she uploaded videos of him on You Tube that went viral and led to him being spotted and then signed by American superstar Usher.
