Following the ceremony, Bieber was keen to thank his supporters for their votes, and eventually tracked down a laptop to post a message to fans on Twitter.com.
He writes, "Finally got access to a computer. Haven't been able to tweet. Really happy night. Loved being back in Canada. Special night. I won at the MMVA's a year ago my first award ever... so I had to come back to TO (Toronto) and support my fellow Canadians. Thank you for the love... the award that I am so grateful 4 (is) FAN FAV... because it was from u. You the Fans are always there for me. I promise to always do the same."
And Bieber also gave a cheeky nod to his girlfriend Selena Gomez, who hosted the awards ceremony, adding: "And to that young lady selenagomez - great job and it was a pleasure meeting u."
