We waited with bated breath for the two biggest awards of the night: The Milestone Award and Billboard Artist of the Year. The Milestone Award celebrates the ingenuity of this year's hitmakers (whatever that means) and was awarded to Justin Bieber, who was quick to point out "I'm 19 years old." Ah, we think it's sweet that he's reaching his first milestone at 19…apparently there was also some booing from the audience but that all stopped when he thanked Jesus. Meanwhile, Taylor Swift won the award for Billboard Artist of the Year, snatching up another prize to decorate her web.
