MTV Video Music Awards is still on and Justin Bieber who got only one nomination this year is not walking home empty-handed as he won the nod. Beating Ke$ha, Jason Derulo, Nicki Minaj and Broken Bells, he was voted Best New Artist. Humbled by his first VMA prize, the Canadian singer said, "Wow, thank you so much everybody. This means a lot to me; it means a lot to my family."
Although Eminem was not in the house, he added another gong on September 12 that evening before Bieber's win. Announced by "Modern Family" actress Sofia Vergara, his "Not Afraid" music video was named Best Hip-Hop Video, beating Jay-Z and Kid Cudi and once again preventing B.o.B and Drake from taking home an award.
The other winners which were already unveiled included Muse's "Uprising" for Best Special Effect, Florence and the Machine's "Dog Days Are Over" for Best Art Direction, Jay-Z and Alicia Keys' "Empire State of Mind" for Best Cinematography and Lady GaGa's "Bad Romance" for Best Editing.
