Austin Mahone Wins Artist to Watch for ‘What About Love’ at 2013 MTV VMAs
He was 3-for-3 and it’s safe to say that it’s a charmed life for this talented kid, who is clearly gunning for Justin Bieber‘s throne now that The Biebs is hurtling towards his 20s.
“I don’t even know what to say,” Mahone, 17, said upon taking the stage to nab his Moon Man. “This is one of the coolest things ever.”
He then proceeded to thank God, MTV and his mom, who raised him as a single mother. That’s a familiar story and something he has in common with Da Biebs.
He also took care to thank his fans aka Mahomies for all their love and support.
Congrats to Austin Mahone on picking up his first VMA at the tender age of 17. We’ll be seeing more of him in the near future. We know it. He is, after all, the Artist to Watch.
