Bieber, in winning the Top Social Artist award, said "I just want to say how much of a blessing it's been, the past three or four years, growing up in front of everybody.

"I want to thank all my fans, because the Internet is where I got my start, and all my fans have helped me get to this position."

"I always say that the people have the power," the gorgeous singer said, "so I want to say thank you to the glittering, gorgeous community of fans out there."

Swift, no stranger to award show success, went home with the Billboard Woman of the Year award.

She told her fans, "I just love you so much, I'm just so humbled and honored by this."
