Stop! Gangnam Time! MC Hammer performs with Psy at the 2012 AMAs - watch here

The 2012 American Music Awards have come and gone for another year — but not without leaving behind plenty of headline fodder. This year, ‘90s ‘Can’t Touch This’ rapper MC Hammer joined Korean pop sensation Psy on stage to close the night with a mash-up of 'Gangnam Style' and Hammer’s ‘2 Legit (2 Quit)’. The result speaks for itself …

On the red carpet, Christina Aguilera and Nicki Minaj probably could've used some fashion guidance from Taylor Swift, who looked stunning in her gold-laced gown.

Justin Bieber played the good-son card, opting to bring his mum to this year's proceedings.

The show itself saw live performances from Linkin Park, Usher, Pink, Nicki Minaj, Biebz and Christina Aguilera — which, oddly, also looks a lot like the list of winners.

The winner of Artist of the Year was Justin Bieber, who was strongly tipped to take the gong.

Usher took out the Best Soul / R&B Artist award, while Linkin Park got the Best Alternative Group nod (really?).

Best pop/rock album also went to Justin Bieber for Believe — which was pretty much a shoo-in. Favorite rap hip-hop artist went to Nicki Minaj — and we're glad, because that outfit did her her career no favours.
