Bieber, 18, won all three categories in which he was nominated, including the night's biggest award, artist of the year.
Bieber visited Starship - the national children's hospital - earlier this year to surprise some of the patients and film the television ad for the Christmas Album. Lucy Lawless also fronts a TV commercial for the album.
Music industry veteran Paul Ellis worked in conjunction with Universal Music and the Starship Foundation to develop the Starship Christmas Album 2012 and says, "I knew that all these great Christmas tracks existed but had never been released in New Zealand," he says. “It’s a real coup to get all these artists on one album – and to have the tracks donated by the artists makes it that much sweeter for Starship.”
Starship Foundation CEO Brad Clark says “Starship Children’s Health has more than 120,000 patient visits a year from children from all over New Zealand. By buying this fantastic album, people will make this Christmas very special for our national children’s hospital.”
