Justin Bieber Wins Award for Ur Fave Artist at 2011 MuchMusic Video Awards
Justin Bieber was a multi-award winning artist Sunday night (June 19) at the 2011 MuchMusic Video Awards, taking home International Video of the Year by a Canadian artist for ‘Somebody to Love [Remix],’ as well as top honors for the Ur Fave Artist trophy, also for his ‘Somebody to Love Remix’ video, featuring Usher.
Bieber stormed onto the stage, slapping hands and thanking his fans who surrounded the stage, prior to being presented the award by his singing girlfriend, Selene Gomez. “Thank you so much!” Bieber exclaimed as he took the mic with his new trophy in hand. “I want to say that the first time I ever got an award was here at the MuchMusic Awards, so I want to say thank you to all my fans … you guys are amazing, and I couldn’t do this without you! I love you so much!”
In the Ur Fave Artist category, Bieber was up against the likes of Arcade Fire’s ‘The Suburbs,’ Avril Lavigne‘s ‘What the Hell,’ Down With Webster’s ‘Whoa Is Me’ and Drake, ‘Find Your Love,’ who tied Bieber for the International Video of the Year award by a Canadian artist.
