The country singer was named Best Female Act and Live Act as well as picking up the award for Best Look. Teen pop star Bieber was named Best Male Act, Pop Act and also won the World Stage, but he wasn't present at the ceremony to pick up his gongs.

X Factor runners-up One Direction won Best New Act and the biggest fans prize, but Rihanna didn't managed to scoop any awards, despite being nominated six times. The late Whitney Houston was given the global icon award, which was collected by Alicia Keys. A tribute video to the singer featured Lady Gaga and One Direction.
