What happens in Vegas doesn’t always stay in Vegas and the 2014 Billboard Music Awards are proof. This years awards were held at the MGM Grand and featured rapper/actor Chris “Ludacris” Bridges as the host. Performers included J LO and Pitbull (who may as well go ahead and get married they are seen so much on stage together), Kate Perry and a heavily anticipated “performance” by the late King of Pop, Michael Jackson.
Wiz Khalifa, Kelly Rowland and Nicki Minaj served as presenters to lure the rest of us into watching. Justin Timberlake took home the award for Billboard’s Top 200 Artist while Robin Thicke and T.I. won top R&B Song for “Blurred Lines.”
In case you missed them, we gathered the most talked about performances and photos below!
