One Direction and Celine Dion rule Bambi Awards

Pop sensations One Direction and singer Celine Dion were the big winners at the 2012 Bambi Awards in Germany on Thursday night.

The boyband triumphed in the Pop International category, and the fivepiece thrilled the crowd at the ceremony in Dusseldorf by performing their hit Live While We're Young.

Singer Harry Styles later took to Twitter.com to tell fans, "Thank you so much Germany for the Bambi award! It means a lot... We had fun tonight," and he also shared a photo of his trophy going through an X-ray scanner at an airport before a flight back home.

Dion collected the Entertainment award, her third ever Bambi, and also sang River Deep - Mountain High, while actress Salma Hayek won a Bambi in the Film International category.

Other big winners at the event, which honours stars who have "affected and inspired the German public", included daring Austrian skydiver Felix Baumgartner and German rapper Cro.
