Billboard Music Awards: Drake Makes History!

Last night at the Billboard Music Awards, Drake brought down the house with the most Billboard Music Award wins in history!

Drake took home an incredible 12 awards, leaving us shocked. Go on with your bad self Champagne Papi. Alongside him for top awards honors were: Cardi B with five, Maroon 5 with four awards.

The show had jaw dropping moments from beginning to end, starting with Taylor Swift and Brendon Urie’s grand opening of the show, with their new smash hit, “Me!” in an explosion of color, which included a drum line, aerialists and flying umbrellas. Returning host, Kelly Clarkson, then gave a hilarious opening monologue, filled with special surprise guests and of course, a song or two.

Perhaps the most memorable was Madonna’s breathtaking performance with Maluma of their new song “Medellin,” with augmented reality technology.

ICON Award recipient Mariah Carey, showed off her pipes in a medley of her greatest hits, including “A No No,” “Always Be My Baby,” “Emotions,” “We Belong Together,” and “Hero.”

Korean Pop sensation BTS took home the Top Social Artist award, voted on directly by the fans.

The Billboard Music Awards delivered quite the show yesterday. We can’t wait to see what these artists have in store for the rest of the year.
