Canadian pop star Justin Bieber won two awards at the event in Cannes, France
Justin Bieber was among the big-name winners at the NRJ Music Awards last night (12.11.16).
The chart-topping pop star claimed the International Male Artist of the Year gong and the International Song of the Year prize for his tune 'Love Yourself' at the ceremony in Cannes, France.
Justin's awards are the latest landmark in an increasingly memorable year for the 22-year-old Canadian star, whose most-recent album 'Purpose' has been widely hailed by fans and critics.
The record features a string of big hits, including 'Love Yourself' and 'What Do You Mean?', and was the fourth best-selling album of last year.
He followed the album's release with his Purpose tour, which has seen Justin play at sold-out venues across the world.

Elsewhere, Bruno Mars was handed an Honour Award, while local star David Guetta won the DJ of the Year gong.
