The 2012 MTV TRL Awards last night celebrated the best music and pop music culture of the past year with an adrenaline-filled show broadcast live across Italy from Florence's Piazzale Michelangelo.

Performing alongside Italy's foremost pop and rap artists, British pop-R'n'B sensation Conor Maynard wowed the 25 thousand-strong crowd with his debut single "Can't Say No", and Californian quintet Young the Giant rocked the open-air event with their hits "Cough Syrup" and "My Body".

From 12 million votes counted exclusively via, winners of the 10 award categories included KPop superstars Big Bang, who established themselves as firm favourites with the Italian crowd, winning the 'Best Fan' category. Justin Bieber was awarded 'Best Look, sponsored by StudioLine', LMFAO's "Party Rock Anthem" was named 'Best Video' and Italian indie-rockers Subsonica received this year's 'MTV History Award'.
