Skooter reporting 09/07/12

One Direction, the British boy band were the big grabbers at the MTV Video Music Awards on Thursday, shoving Rihanna out and taking home three prizes to cap their arrival on the U.S. pop scene just six months ago.

The youthful Britons, contenders on the British version of TV singing contest "The X Factor," knocked Justin Bieber and Rihanna for best pop video, and fellow all-boy British outfit The Wanted as best new artists.

For their debut hit single “What Makes You Beautiful” also won the most-shareworthy video award which was voted on by fans and later performed their latest release "One Thing" to crowds of ear-piercing girls at the two-hour Los Angeles ceremony.

One Direction is managed by British TV entrepreneur Simon Cowell. They made history in March when it became the first UK group to see its first album, "Up All Night," debut at the top of the Billboard 200 chart.

Rihanna, meanwhile shared a leading five nominations with Canadian rapper Drake, ran off with just one award.

In a hip-hop-heavy show, rapper Nicki Minaj got the best female video for "Starships," while Chris Brown won two awards - best male video and best choreography for "Turn Up the Music."
