Bieber, overlooked at the Grammys, predictably won the fan choice Juno award — the only competition determined by ordinary fans — and best pop album (“My World 2.0). The teen sensation, on tour in Europe, sent a video message of thanks.
“I want to thank the fans so much for being so supportive, buying my albums and voting for me… All right — peace, Junos,” he said.
Bieber was outshone by Neil Young in the best artist competition. Young also received a humanitarian award.
“I was 16 one time. He’s fantastic. He’s got some moves, doesn’t he?” Young said of Bieber.
