Stars Who Won Big At The Billboard Music Awards 2015
The 2015 Billborads Music Awards which took place on Sunday night, May 17, was aired live on ABC from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.
Hosts Ludacris and Christine Tiegen looked amazing on stage. We must commend Tiegen for being a beautiful co-host. When we first heard she was going to be anchoring the show with Ludacris, we were kind of surprised. But, she did great!
When it comes to the question, "Who dominated the entire night of the awards?," we would definitely say Taylor Swift did. As a matter of fact, she owned the awards and she deserved it! There is something about Taylor that is so sweet, you just can't help loving her and listening to her songs over and over again. As the lead nominee with 14 nominations, she ended up nabbing the most trophies of the night. Taking home as many as 8 awards including top artist, top Billboard 200 artist, top Hot 100 artist and top streaming song.
The ceremony kicked off with her much-anticipated futuristic revenge fantasy video for “Bad Blood”.
“This is such a good night!” she screamed more than once during her acceptance speech.
"I am so excited I got to show the world," she told the audience.
English singer and songwriter, Sam Smith, who recently underwent a vocal surgery which made him skip this memorable event, was the second biggest winner. He racked a total of 13 nominations, winning 3 awards including top artist. His way of participating in the awesome event was by making a video message in which he expressed his gratitude with the aid of cue cards.
