Top Moments from Billboard Music Awards 2017

The 2017 Billboard Music Awards aired Sunday evening and social media is still buzzing over Drake‘s big wins, Diddy’s Biggie tribute, Celine Dion‘s classic performance and of course, Drake’s Dad’s purple suit. Here are some highlights from the big night in music.

Nicki Minaj opened the show last night in classic Nicki fashion, with very little fashion. The rapper donned barely there clothing and left little to the imagination for viewers and audience members. She performed a medley of songs.

Ludacris and Vanessa Hudgens hosted the big night and did a pretty good job, I might add. The two definitely had chemistry and it was fun to watch the two.

Drake was the BIG winner last night. The multi-platinum rapper took home 13 Billboard Music Award trophies. Drake won for Top Artist, Top Male Artist, Top Billboard 200 Album for “Views,” Top Billboard 200 Artist, Top Hot 100 Artist, Top Song Sales Artist, Top Steaming Songs Artist, Top Rap Artist, Top Rap Tour, Top Rap Album for “Views,” Top Streaming Song (Audio) for “One Dance,” Top R&B Song for “One Dance,” and Top R&B Collaboration for “One Dance”.

Although Drake won most of the awards, his dad stole the show with his classic purple suit. We’ve deemed him the “Best Dressed” for the evening. The rapper brought his dad on stage, along with his labelmates, to accept his awards. Beautiful moment.

Cher put us all to shame and left us in awe after her performance. The 71-year-old pop legend took home the evening’s Icon Award. She has now spent over a half-century entertaining people while staying true to her vision. You look amazing Cher!

Twenty years after “My Heart Will Go On” dominated popular culture, Celine Dion took us back to the moment and performed the classic song at Sunday’s awards show.

Sean “Diddy” Combs presents a tribute to Biggie Smalls at the Billboard Music Awards. Yesterday was the late rapper’s birthday and he would have been 45 today. He was murdered at the tender age of 24.
