It was a great night for the Brits at last night's People's Choice Awards in America - both One Direction and The Wanted triumphed at the ceremony held at the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles.

The boyband rivals were both big winners, with One Direction picking up the first award of the evening before the ceremony even got underway - their 'What Makes You Beautiful' hit was announced as the Favourite Song during the pre-show red carpet event.

Despite not even being in attendance, the 1D boys then went on to win the Favourite Album prize for their first album 'Up All Night'.

However, they were beaten to the award for Favourite Breakout Artist by The Wanted, who they have had a long running feud with, which came to a head on Twitter last year.

After also beating the likes of Fun. and Carly Rae Jepsen, The Wanted lads were visibly stunned.

Max George told screaming fans at the ceremony: "This never happens to us. We've never won anything before... We never expected this at all... To win this and beat the people that we have..."

And bandmate Nathan Sykes admitted the win was a dream come true for him, adding: "Over Christmas, I was sat down with my mum and we were kind of talking: 'What do you want to do this year...?' and I said, 'The one thing I want to do is win a massive award...', so this is unbelievable."

The boys then performed an acapella version of the Starland Vocal Band's hit 'Afternoon Delight', which they dedicated to another People's Choice winner, comedienne and chat show host Ellen DeGeneres, for her support.

Katy Perry was the big winner of the evening, picking up the awards for Favourite Pop Artist, Favourite Female Artist and Favourite Music Video, while her fans the KatyCats earned her the Favourite Music Fan Following trophy.
