Michael Jackson set a record at the American Music Awards at Los Angeles' Nokia Theater Sunday night with his second win of the evening. The late singer scooped up Favorite Male Artist in the Pop/Rock category, which brings his total number of AMAs to 23, the most by any single artist.

The late singer was up against Eminem and T.I. in the category.

Melissa Etheridge presented the award and Jackson's brother Jermaine accepted the award for the second time in the evening, spending longer on the stage this time to thank his family and his brother's fans.

Jackson's first win of the evening was for Favorite Male Artist in the Soul/R&B category, where he beat out Maxwell and Jamie Foxx. The award was presented by Disney TV star and singer Selena Gomez and Orianthi, the guitarist from Jackson's concert documentary 'This Is It' and a pop singer in her own right.

Jackson is up for a total of five AMAs this year. The three remaining nominations are for Artist of the Year, Favorite Pop/Rock Album for 'Number Ones,' and Favorite Soul/R&B Album, also for 'Number Ones.'
