Drake and Justin Bieber glory

It was a triumphant night for Canada as Drake and Justin Bieber walked away with four awards each. The One Dance rapper was honoured with rap/hip hop album for Views while Bieber won the coveted video of the year for Sorry.

Unfortunately for Bieber, he lost out on scooping artist of the year with Ariana Grande swooping in to claim a surprise win. Fighting back tears, Grande said in her acceptance speech: "Thank you guys so much, I am shaking, I want to say thank you to my fans, I love you to the bottom of my heart... I am shaking."

She said: "In 2014, this stage was actually the first time that I was authentically 100 percent honest with all of you. I think it's safe to say most of you know my life whether I liked it or not. And I had to stop. Because I had everything. And I was absolutely broken inside. I kept it all together enough to where I would never let you down, but I kept it too much together to where I let myself down."

Delivering one last heartfelt message, the singer dedicated her award to everyone stating: "I care about people. This is for you."

Green Day's message for Trump

As for the other highlights, US rock band Green Day sent president-elect Donald Trump a stern message during their performance, chanting: "No Trump, No KKK, No Fascist USA!", while late singer Prince was honoured posthumously with top soundtrack for his 1984 album Purple Rain. Lastly, former Police frontman Sting performed a medley of his biggest hits to celebrate winning the AMAs' prestigious award of merit.
