Also I just realised Justin's video for 'Baby' has been viewed over 150million times on YouTube, which is a record! So if he doesnt take home an award, clearly they are not handing out the MMVAS based on facts. Just because he is young, does not mean you can deny him the right of the award, becasue the production and visual on 'Baby' was just stunning!

Both brilliant all round entertainers in their own right. Hopefully Justin will be able to take home some awards over Drake this time, because Drake already had his night at the Juno Awards. Although they both have had an incredible, so I would'nt really mind who took home which award.
