Drake won 12 trophies at the “Billboard Music Awards” last night, to bring his total to 27. That’s the most of any artist in history. Meanwhile, Madonna performed with holograms of herself, and Halsey did a sexy dance routine.
As expected, Madonna brought out several holograms of herself for her performance of “Medellin” with Latin artist Maluma.
Halsey had an emotional and amazing performance of “Without Me”
and a fun performance with BTS:
Taylor Swift and Brendan Urie started the show with “Me!”, although some people accused her of ripping off Beyoncé by including a drumline.
Other hot performances of the night included the Jonas Brothers and Mariah Carey, who won the Icon Award.
Paula Abdul closed the show with a medley of her hits. It was high energy and the dancing was great, but it was obvious that she wasn’t singing.
As for the winners, it was all about Drake. He took home 12 trophies, bringing his total to 27. He now has more Billboard Music Awards than any other artist in history. Cardi B won six, and Maroon 5 took home four.
Drake’s awards included Top Artist . . . for which he thanked his MOM.
Brendon Urie of Panic! At the Disco thanked his mom too:
Speaking of acceptance speeches, Imagine Dragons used their time after winning Top Rock Artist to speak out against conversion therapy.
