At last year's MTV Video Music Awards, Justin Bieber won Male Video for "U Smile" (photo, above). That soulful ballad showcased the singing talent of this teen idol. This year, Bieber is back to defend his title with "Boyfriend."
That track off his third studio album "Believe," marks a departure for the 18-year-old crooner, with its hip-hop sound intermixed with acoustic moments. The video feautures Bieber slowing down his fast car for one lucky young lady. (Watch video at the bottom of this post.)
His competition includes two previous winners of this award. 2008 champ Chris Brown ("With You") contends with "Turn Up the Music." And Usher, who won 2004 for "Yeah," reaped his sixth bid for "Climax."
