Throw in some divas, an exceptional crooner, and Canada’s most talented son, and as a result, you’ll get a memorable show. The 2017 Billboard Music Awards was hosted by Ludacris and Vanessa Hudgens, which was held at the T-Mobile Arena in Los Angeles. Drake was the big winner at last night’s event taking home 13 awards beating Adele’s record of 12. Let’s check out some notable performances for this year’s show. – THE D
Celine Dion singing “My Heart Will Go On”
It’s been 20 years since the movie Titanic and this song were released and the fabulous diva who sang the song inside what seemed to be a massive chandelier, just wowed everyone.
Miley Cyrus’ emotional performance of “Malibu”
Looks like Miley has reinvented herself…again. The Bangerz phase is obviously been replaced by a more laid back and subdued Miley that we’ve all seen before. She performed a stripped-down version of her latest single “Malibu” and got a bit teary-eyed at the end. Oh, to be in-love.
Cher’s “Believe” and “If I Could Turn Back Time”
The recipient of the Icon Award, at 71 years old wearing a nipple heart pasty, Cher can easily give these youngins a run for their money.
Bruno Mars crooning to “Versace on the Floor”
If there’s anything that Bruno Mars can’t do is to disappoint people. He sang “Versace on the Floor” that night like he was there when he was actually in Amsterdam for a show. The proof is on the video. Damn those pipes!
Drake’s performance of “Gyalchester” inside a fountain
Yep, nothing but spectacular. The biggest winner of the night Drake took his performance of “Gyalchester” outside and inside the Bellagio fountain while fireworks exploded. That’s why he’s our number one papi.
