- Chuck Brown, the Godfather of go-go, was beaming at the 2010 Go-Go Awards held at Lincoln Theatre Sunday night, taking home awards for best traditional band and song of the year ("Love"). Both trophies were presented to Brown by D.C. mayor-elect VIncent Gray. "I love how you keep this old man around," Brown said to his fans. The evening also included a spirited performance from Rare Essence, a tribute to the late Anthony "Little Benny" Harley and Go-Go Hall of Fame inductions for Sugar Bear & EU, Rare Essence conga player Tyrone "Jungle Boogie" Williams, and Steven "Bugg" Harron, lead talker of Junkyard Band.

- On a much bigger stage in Los Angeles, Justin Bieber took home four awards at Sunday's American Music Awards, including artist of the year. This momentous occasion reportedly had Usher, Bieber's mentor, splling tears of pride. View a full photo gallery from last night's show.
