Will Nicki Minaj and Rihanna dominate the 2012 American Music Awards winners list as they did with nominations? Both ladies led the nominee pack for the 2012 American Music Awards, nabbing four nods each for the fan-voted show, but One Direction and Justin Bieber are hot on their trail with three apiece.

During the actual AMAs, Justin Bieber snagged a trophy almost instantly, and although we didn’t expect her to win it, Carly Rae Jepsen nabbed the New Artist of the Year award later on in the show. We thought 1D would’ve had that one in the bag!

Check out this list of the 2012 American Music Awards winners and keep checking back throughout the show to see which artist ends up winning big!
