The 2017 Billboard Music Awards were held the previous evening (May 21) at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada and publicized live through ABC in the U.S.
Who performed at the current year’s Billboard Music Awards? The rundown is long (Allow me to take a major breath): Nicki Minaj, Lil’ Wayne, Jason Derulo, Camila Cabello, The Chainsmokers, Julia Michaels, Ed Sheeran, Miley Cyrus, Lorde, Sam Hunt, Celine Dion, Imagine Dragons, Drake, Halsey, Florida Georgia Line, John Legend, Cher, and Bruno Mars.
“Best Artist” was won by Drake, “Best New Artist” was won by Zayn (and chances are high another Direction part will win this classification one year from now), and the “Icon Award” was given to Cher, who played out a mixture of amazing works of art.
Celine Dion was welcomed by Billboard to play out “My Heart Will Go On” to praise the twentieth commemoration of “Titanic”.
Trivia: Ed Sheeran’s performance was pre-recorded in Santiago, Chile, and Drake’s performance was pre-recorded at The Fountains of Bellagio
