“This award is the first award I've ever won in my entire life and it means so much to me that it is for Best Hip-Hop,” she told the star-studded audience. “Because that's what inspired me to move to America and pursue my dreams and it's what helped me when I was a teenager to escape and to get through my life and to better times.”

Katy Perry also won three awards, scooping the prizes for Favorite Adult Contemporary Artist, Single of the Year and Favorite Pop/Rock Female Artist, while newcomer Sam Smith was named Favorite Pop/Rock Male Artist.
