The Earned It crooner, who was present at the ceremony, wore bandages that covered his entire face apart from his mouth. He dedicated his awards to late musician Prince, noting he had last accepted the award from the late musician.
The top prize of the night, Artist of the year, went to Taylor Swift. The singer went on to win two more awards, music video of the year, and the favorite female pop artist.
Swift, who wasn't at the ceremony, said she was unable to accept the award in person because she was busy re-recording her early music catalog, which was recently sold.
