Music's Biggest Stars Rule the Billboard Music Awards

After a five year absence the Billboard Music Awards were back today, bigger and better than ever before! Hosted by The Hangover’s Ken Jeong at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, the night honoured some of the biggest names in music today, such as Rihanna, Taylor Swift, U2, Eminem and veteran Neil Diamond. Justin Bieber was one of the night’s early winners, and after his award for top new artist was announced he took the opportunity to kiss girlfriend Selena Gomez, who sat by his side throughout the show. Exciting and energetic performances were the talking points, starting with Rihanna’s sexy rendition of “S&M” with Britney Spears. When Beyoncé hit the stage to sing “Run the World (Girls)” she had everyone on their feet, and following that she was honoured for her music and humanitarian work with the Billboard Millennium Award. Cee Lo Green wowed the crowd with his medley of songs and rotating piano, while Ke$ha, Nicki Minaj and Keith Urban also provided entertainment on stage.
