What a night! The Billboard Music Awards went down last night and was in full effect in the city of Las Vegas. There were so many moments that couldn’t be forgotten, but the performances and crew love set the bar. For starters, one unforgettable moment was Drake taking home 13 of the 21 awards he was nominated for, breaking records for the most wins in a single night at the BBMAS. The show was hosted and slayed by Vanessa Hudgens and Ludacris, taking place in the T-Mobile arena.
From Amsterdam, Bruno Mars brought life to his hit of hits, “Versace on the Floor.” Giving us a new song to witness live and new vibes to feel, Bruno is everything!
Nicki Minaj‘s medley was sexy, yet hard, in black leather and serving up a nine-minute special. Opening up the show, Lil’ Wayne, David Guetta, and Jason Derulo, all lended assists. Over a course of four songs, Nicki dished a plate full of goodness.
Hitting-hard, Drake made you look as he bounced to the beat between fire and water in the famous Bellagio fountain in Vegas. Also, getting a hand in assists, the duo rocked “Gyalchester” on the heated stage, although Drake could have killed it solo.
No wonder why Cher received the Icon Award last night, she’s a legend that doesn’t age! Cher doesn’t look a day over 55, but she’s been in the game for 53 years; you do the math! She’s 71 years old! Stunning! She danced in color to her smash “Believe” and gave us full dark hair and black leather rocker to “If I Could Turn Back Time.” Plus, she can do a five minute plank!
Celine Dion left eyes and hearts full with an emotional set and song. The star performed in diamonds and pearls and with a pureness. She performed “My Heart Will Go On” the amazing and unbelievably heartfelt hit from the classic “Titantic.” It was in celebration of the 20th Anniversary. It still felt the same in 2017 than it did the very moment the anthem was heard in 1997.
