China's Internet singing sensation "Little Apple", sang by Chopsticks Brothers, won the award for international song of the year at the American Music Awards in Los Angeles, Nov 23, 2014.

Chopsticks Brothers – which consists of director Xiao Yang and musician Wang Taili - played a middle-aged singing duo in the film Old Boys: The Way of the Dragon. In the film, they sang Little Apple when they auditioned for an American music talent show and received a thumbs-up from the judges.

This is the first time a Chinese "god" song (a term for songs that go viral on the Internet) showcased on the global stage.

American Music Awards are awarded based on viewers' votes. South Korean singer Psy's Gangnam Style, which broke YouTube's most viewed video record, owes its global success to AMA.
