 "This show, on its 40th anniversary, still reflects Dick's original vision," host Ryan Seacrest, a Clark protégé, told the audience.


LOS ANGELES -- Justin Bieber dragged his date on stage with him to accept the American Music Awards artist of the year honor Sunday night.
It was his mom.
"I want to thank you for just always believing in me," the 18-year-old singer said, looking into his mother's eyes.
Bieber was the biggest winner at the 40th annual American Music Awards, winning artist of the year, favorite pop/rock artist and favorite pop/rock album.
Carly Rae Jepsen, who won new artist of the year, introduced Bieber as the "current generation's biggest superstar."
Bieber used one of his acceptance speeches to address "all the haters who thought that, you know, that maybe I was just here for one or two years."
"I feel like I'm going to be here for a very long time," he said.

But it was Psy Ft. the return of MC Hammer 

that brought the show to it's feet and shut down the show!

 Check out the awesome video.
 
It was, perhaps, that inspiration that produced of the show's most energetic moments: South Korean rapper Psy's collaboration with MC Hammer in a dance medley to a mash-up of Psy's online already viral gone wild hit "Gangnam Style" and Hammer's 1991 sensation "Too Legit to Quit."



  






Hammer, who triggered a dance craze in the early 1990s, said he and Psy are "kindred spirits" and they may work together again. "He's got the whole world dancing," he said, comparing Psy to James Brown, Michael Jackson and himself.
