Adele Named 2012's Top Artist At Billboard Magazine Awards

Another amazing year for singer

Adele has been named Billboard's Top Artist once again thanks to her second studio album, taking home three awards at this year's ceremony.

Remarkably, she won the exact same double-whammy in 2011, while also taking the Best Female artist with her second album 21 named Top Album of the year.

Rihanna managed to poll second in the Top Artist category for this year, ahead of Taylor Swift in third and Drake in fourth.

Justin Bieber rounds off the top five, whilst Nicki Minaj, Katy Perry, Maroon 5, LMFAO and One Direction complete the top ten in that order.

In further amazing news for Adele, she also bagged Top Female Artist (perhaps unsurprisingly), with Drake winning the Male equivalent.

Top Group went to Maroon 5 whilst breakthrough sensations One Direction were handed Top New Artist.

The top song was Gotye's 'Somebody That I Used To Know'.
