Last night, stars descended upon the 2010 American Music Awards, where artists including Usher, Eminem, Black Eyed Peas, Rihanna and more swept the categories. Justin Bieber walked away the night's biggest winner, nabbing Favorite Breakthrough Aritst, Pop/Rock Male Artist, Artist of the Year and Pop/Rock Album, but urban had a heavy hand in the competition.
