If the results of this weekend’s NRJ Awards in Cannes are any indication, French music audiences love to party rock, but they also appreciate a quality ballad. Adele and LMFAO captured two awards each, while Justin Bieber took home the 2012 NRJ Award of Honor.

Adele won International Song of the Year for ‘Someone Like You’ and International Revelation of the Year. Despite losing both of those categories to Adele, LMFAO still managed to walk away with two awards. The high-octane duo won International Group/Duo of the Year and ‘Party Rock Anthem’ captured Music Video of the Year, beating out Katy Perry‘s ‘Last Friday Night’ and Lady Gaga‘s ‘Born This Way.’ Redfoo also lit up the stage with a performance of the song, though his bandmate Sky Blu was not present.

Not all of the winners made it to France for the ceremony, but Bieber attended, decked out in a light blue suit with a retro, slicked-back haircut. Ace Showbiz reports that he told the crowd, “Thank you to everyone here. I love you guys.” He also posted on Twitter, “I never thought I would ever get out of Stratford and now I’m celebrating in France. Never gets old. ALWAYS grateful! #Ilovemyfans.”

Shakira also received an NRJ Award of Honor for her long and successful career. Rihanna beat Britney and Beyonce to win International Female Artist of the Year, while Mika knocked off Pitbull to take International Male Artist of the Year.
