The girls rubbed shoulders with some Hollywood heavyweights, including Justin Bieber and Taylor Swift, and even the first lady, Michelle Obama.
The band competed against three other Asian performers for the Favorite Asian Act award: Agnes Monica from Indonesia, Yuna from Malaysia and Charice from the Philippines. The Filipino singer who rose to fame through YouTube took the award.
