BOSTON — Karmin, whose song “Brokenhearted” reached number 16 on Billboard’s “Hot 100″ list last June, was named “artist of the year” at the 25th annual Boston Music Awards Sunday night at Boston’s Liberty Hotel. The Boston duo—Amy Heidemann and Nick Noonan—became a YouTube sensation last year with their cover of Chris Brown’s “Look at Me Now” and then performed on “Saturday Night Live” in February. Then Heidemann was picked by fans to appear on the flip cover of Rolling Stone’s “Women Who Rock” issue in September. Karmin is scheduled to perform on a bill with Justin Bieber and others at KISS 108′s (sold out) “Jingle Ball” at TD Garden on Dec. 6.

The Boston Music Awards aim to honor the best music produced by artists with “strong ties to New England” over the past year. A full list of winners is below.
