The Billboard Music Awards aired on ABC from the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, NV. Hosted by Ludacris and Chrissy Teigen, it definitely had its moments. The show's ending was pretty wack with Kanye West performing his song "All Day" looking like the same performance he has already done. Where is all the "Good Music" from before Yeezy?! Did everyone see Kylie and Kendall Jenner get booed by the crowd when they introduced Kanye? The boos rang loud when Kylie started speaking and tailed off when Kendall started. My favorite performance was Meghan Trainor & John Legend called "Like I'm Gonna Lose You." Check out the video of their performance.
A few of the awards were deserving including Taylor Swift winning for Top Album. The best Rap category was utterly disgusting! Iggy Azalea won for her hit song "Fancy." I'm not hating on Iggy by any means, just miss the days of Notorious BIG & Tupac amongst others. I know that's the past but Rap hasn't been big for me for years now. Sam Smith took home the award for "Top Male Artist" beating out some big names including Justin Timberlake and Ed Sheeran. The "Top Female Artist" award went to Taylor Swift, who won 8 awards including the biggest of the night, "Top Artist", while the "Top Radio Song" went to John Legend for his song "All of Me." Meghan Trainor won for "Top Song."
As far as fashion was concerned, Taylor Swift rocked an all white ensemble that was pretty good.
Host, Chrissy Teigen changed in and out of some neck-breaking dresses. Check out Ludacris' outfit as he hosts the show.
