Billboard Music Awards 2017: What You Missed
The 2017 Billboard Music Awards were held Sunday in Las Vegas and oh what a night.
In case you missed it, here’s what folks are buzzing about:
Drake breaks records and mends fences
Drizzy owned the evening.
The rapper took home 13 awards including top artist, surpassing singer Adele’s 12 trophies for the most wins in one night.
He also kept it hot and wet performing his single “Gyalchester” in the fountain at the Bellagio Resort and Casino complete with fireworks.
During his acceptance speech following his Top 200 album win, Drake flirted a bit with the awards show co-host, actress Vanessa Hudgens by telling her how great she looked and also showed love to the other co-host, rapper Ludacris.
“Ludacris, we haven’t always seen eye to eye, but I’ve always been a big fan of yours and I got a lot of love for you,” Drake said. “I want to let you know that face to face, while I’m still here.”
The pair of rappers kicked off a beef back in 2011 when Drake alluded to his belief that Ludacris was copying a flow that he and others favored.
Drake also mentioned label mate Nicki Minaj who he was reportedly estranged from after a rivalry kicked off last year between Drake and her then boyfriend, rapper Meek Mill.
“I want to say, Nicki Minaj, I’m so glad we found our way back because I love you and I could never, ever, ever see it any other way,” Drake said.
‘Believe’ that Cher killed it
How is Cher’s body at 71 hotter than some 21 year olds?
The singer definitely “turned back time” at the ceremony where she performed and received the Billboard Icon Award.
For her “Believe” performance she donned a blonde wig, some pasties and a whole lot of string. Her “If I Could Turn Back Time” look was a throw back to her 1980s music video outfit with a sheer bodysuit.
In her acceptance speech, the crowd roared when Cher reminded them she’s been in the industry for 53 years and turned 71 on Saturday.
Celine Dion’s heart goes on
How has it been 20 years since “Titanic” came out?
Dion showed she can still slay the theme “My Heart Will Go On” in a performance to honor the anniversary.
Rocking a Stephane Rolland haute couture gown with enormous sleeves, she sang the tune as scenes from the iconic film played on the big screen.
