Adele and LMFAO dominate the winner list for the 13th annual NRJ Awards with two gongs, while Bieber, Shakira and Riri get one each.
Winners for 2012 NRJ Awards have been announced in a star-studded ceremony at the Palais Des Festivals on the French Riviera in Cannes over the weekend. The lucky musicians this year included Adele, LMFAO, Justin Bieber, Shakira and Rihanna.
Adele and duo RedFoo and SkyBlu got the most kudos by scooping two awards each. The former won International Revelation of the Year and International Song of the Year, while the latter grabbed International Group/Duo of the Year and Music Video of the Year.
Bieber, meanwhile, received NRJ Award of Honor for his success in music which he achieved at record time. "Thank you to everyone here," said the teen singer. "I love you guys." He wore a blue moto jacket on top of his white shirt and slicked back his newly-dyed hair when coming to the event.
Fresh off accepting a French knighthood that day, Shakira was, like Bieber, given a NRJ Award of Honor. She was applauded for her lengthy music career, which has spanned 22 years. Looking lovely in a strapless gold bandeau dress, she's beaming upon accepting the award from the presenter.
As for Riri, the Barbados singer was named International Female Artist. The "We Found Love" hitmaker beat the likes of Katy Perry, Beyonce Knowles and Britney Spears. Unfortunately, she's, like Adele, not present to collect the prize.
