Justin Bieber, Carly Rae Jepsen and Katy Perry Win Big at 2012 MuchMusic Video Awards
Justin Bieber, Carly Rae Jepsen and Katy Perry triumphantly walked home with more than one kudo at 2012 MuchMusic Video Awards. Bieber and Perry grabbed two gongs, while newbie Jepsen overshadowed them all by collecting three prizes.
Bieber won International Video of the Year by a Canadian and UR Fave Artist or Group. He beat Avril Lavigne, Nickelback, Simple Plan and Drake in the former category, and won the latter over Drizzy, Jepsen, Marianas Trench and Hedley.
In his speech when collecting UR Fave Artist trophy, he thanked his devotees for inspiring him in his new album. "They helped me get through a lot," he gushed. "I wrote a song about them and it's called 'Believe'. I can't wait for them to hear it."
To his home country, 18-year-old Bieber proudly shouted out, "Canada, I will always support you and always love you. It's always great to pull one of these bad boys home."
Perry got International Video of the Year - Artist and UR Fave International Artist or Group. When accepting the latter gong, the West Coast singer said, "Truthfully I had no idea I was going to win or I would have put on more clothes."
Jepsen bagged Most Streamed Video of the Year, Video of the Year and UR Fave Video. After being presented with her first award, she launched a series of thank yous that included Bieber. "Thank you so, so, so much," she concluded. When raising her trophy, she exclaimed, "Oh, it's very heavy!"
Another star who pocketed multiple kudos was Trench. Though losing UR Fave Artist or Group to Bieber, the pop rock band didn't walk home empty-handed as they received Cinematography of the Year and Pop Video of the Year.
This year, MMVAs was hosted by LMFAO, who won International Video of the Year - Group. Bieber, Jepsen and Perry performed along with Flo Rida and Kelly Clarkson. Selena Gomez, Lucy Hale, Cody Simpson, Chord Overstreet and Darren Criss served as presenters.
