BILLBOARD MUSIC AWARDS
In its inaugural year, the fan-voted award highlights artists who have achieved some of the year's most impressive chart milestones. Bieber captured the award with an assist from his 36 million devoted Beliebers, whom he constantly interacted with via Twitter during his extensive touring over the year. When his album "Believe: Acoustic" hit No. 1 on the Billboard 200, he became the first artist under 19 with five chart-topping LPs.
