The American Music Awards are going down in LA this evening. Usher opened a show that went on to feature many performances from some of the biggest stars in the music industry. Gwen Stefani and the guys of No Doubt put on a show, as did Kelly Clarkson and Ke$ha. Taylor Swift performed her soon-to-be-released single "I Knew You Were Trouble." She changed out of the gold Zuhair Murad number she wore on the red carpet and into her second dress of the evening. Justin Bieber hit the stage too for a rendition of his songs "As Long As You Love Me" and "Beauty and a Beat." Pink put on an acrobatic, energetic performance, and Christina Aguilera wore a tiny costume to sing a song of her own.

As for the awards, Taylor and Justin were big winners. After arriving with his mum, Pattie Mallette, as his date, Justin picked up an early honour for best pop or rock male artist. He was also recognised with favourite pop/rock album. Taylor, meanwhile, was crowned favourite female country artist. Further honours went to best new artist, Carly Rae Jepsen, and favourite country band, Lady Antebellum. The show's still underway in LA, so check back soon for more updates!
