LOS ANGELES -- Adele lead the nominations at this year's American Music Awards, but the soulful singer didn't have much of a presence during the show. She missed the ceremony due to recent throat surgery from which she was recovering.

By night's end, Adele tied Taylor Swift with three awards, nabbing favorite pop/rock female artist, adult contemporary artist and pop/rock album for "21."

Other winners included Maroon 5 as favorite pop-rock band/duo/group, Beyonce as favorite soul/R&B female artist, Bruno Mars as pop/rock male artist, Foo Fighters as favorite alternative rock artist, Rihanna for favorite soul/R&B album for "Loud," Hot Chelle Rae as new artist of the year and Lady Antebellum as favorite country band/duo/group.
