Big Night for Drake at the 2017 Billboard Music Awards

Billboard charting artists from all genres were under the same roof Sunday evening (May 21st) for the 2017 Billboard Music Awards at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. With almost 60 awards and more than a dozen live performance, the Billboard Music Awards are always a wild ride and this year was no exception.

The electronic pop duo the Chainsmokers led the noms with 23 while Drake nipped at their heels with 22.

  • Drake ihad a huge night, breaking the all-time record set by Adele for most wins in a year, bringing home 13 awards.
  • Hip hop MC Nicki Minaj kicked the party off with a bang.
  • She smoked through a nine-minute medley of fan favorites with a huge team of backup dancers behind her as she danced and writhed through her set wearing various sexy S&M bodysuits, patent leather thigh-highs and a pyrotechnic display blazed in the background for the first part, followed by a mesmerizing display of waterfalls for the finale.
  • Jason Derulo, Davie Guetta and Lil Wayne also joined Nicki onstage.
  • Ludacris returned to the BBMA’s for his fourth consecutive year as host, with Vanessa Hudgens as his co-pilot this time. She was more than up to the task, appearing to enjoy a cozy rapport with Ludacris and sporting a rotating array of killer frocks.
  • There were several somber moments as well. Imagine Dragons paid tribute to former Soundgarden and Audioslave singer Chris Cornell, who died on Thursday at age 52.

PERFORMANCES

  • Camila Cabello made her world premiere as a solo performance and put on a haunting, beautiful and heartfelt show. She performed "I Have Questions" and "Crying in the Club."
  • The Chainsmokers’ duo consisting of Andrew Taggart and Alex Pall performed their latest hit single "Young" after taking home the first win of the night with Halsey for "Closer."
  • The chart-topping Julian Michaels delivered an emotionally charged peformance of her debut single "Issues."
  • Ed Sheeran performed "Castle on the Hill" to a visibly hysterical crowd of phone-wielding superfans. He merrily cruised through with his trademark cool chill.
  • Miley Cyrus rocked her new single "Malibu," appearing to return to her country roots with a simple, pared back performance, wearing a cowgirl hat, white crop shorts and a classic peasant shirt. Near the end she appeared overcome by emotion, tearing up and thanking the crowd.
  • The always quirky Lorde recreated a karaoke bar onstage during her endearingly enthusiastic performance of "Green Light."
  • Sam Hunt played a super laid-back version of "Body Like a Back Road."
  • The iconic Celine Dion performed "My Heart Will Go On" to mark the 20th anniversary of the film Titanic’s release. Her performance of the timeless classic was flawless and as compelling as the gigantic, inexplicable poufs of fabric that seemed to wrap her shoulders in a sateen cloud storm.
  • Imagine Dragons performed a dark and brooding, infectious "Believer."
  • Expectations were sky-high for Drake’s performance, and he didn’t disappoint. Drake performed "Gyalchester" inside the Las Vegas Bellagio Fountains, with fireworks and rockets going off. Lit.
  • Halsey had a tough act to follow, but pulled it off with a soulful rendition of "Now or Never."
  • John Legend and Florida Georgia Line pulled off an enchanting and unexpected duo performing "H.O.L.Y." and "Surefire." Sexy, spiritual, all-American magic.
  • Cher proved she still has it and more, performing "Believe" in full, angelic, bedazzled glory. She returned to the stage embracing her inner rebel in a sexy, see through fishnet bodysuit, black motorcycle jacket and big hair with "If I Could Turn Back Time."
  • Bruno Mars brought the fairy tale performing "24K Magic" in a blaze of starlight.

Harry Styles Breaks Record With No. 1 Debut, Kills It On Late Late Show

Harry Styles established a new record for best-selling first week by a British male artist’s debut album on the Billboard 200 as the One Direction singer sold 230,000 total copies of his self-titled solo LP to cruise to No. 1. Harry Styles toppled the previous record of 166,000 copies held by Sam Smith’s In the Lonely Hour, Billboard reports.

Styles is also only the second British male artist to debut at No. 1 with their first LP, joining his former bandmate Zayn Malik, who accomplished the feat with Mind of Mine in April 2016. One Direction now joins an exclusive club of groups that have yielded No. 1 albums for multiple members who went solo, with Styles and Malik joining the Beatles’ John Lennon, George Harrison and Paul McCartney as well as Destiny’s Child Beyoncé and LeToya Luckett.

Meanwhile, Harry has been hanging with James Cordon on the Late Late Show and proved to be quite the late-night funnyman. Styles had a week-long guest residency on the series last week in honor of the release of his debut self-titled solo album.

During his first appearance as part of his week-long residency, Styles played a game called Flinch, in which he had to avoid flinching and continuing to drink a cup of tea while liquidated fruits were hurled at a Plexiglas screen in front of his face.

The next day, Harry performed the The Late Late Show monologue in Corden’s place and also did a Side Effects May Include segment.

The following day, Harry and Corden appeared in a sketch in which they play doctors who burst into song and dance during a patient’s surgery, then at their funeral.

On day four, Harry appeared on Corden’s popular Carpool Karaoke segment, belting out some of his new solo tracks, such as "Sweet Creature" and "Sign of the Times."

On Friday night, Harry performed at L.A.’s Troubadour club in a surprise charity gig, and his special guest was rock legend Stevie Nicks. Harry and Stevie sang his song "Two Ghosts," as well as Fleetwood Mac’s classic "Landslide" and Stevie’s "Leather and Lace," originally a duet with Don Henley. Harry bowed down to Stevie, who he called "The Queen of Everything," and added, "I am losing my s**t in a cool way."
