*BILLBOARD MUSIC AWARDS*: Drake Has Record Night

Written by on May 2, 2019

At least awards-wise, Wednesday’s Billboard Music Awards belonged to Drake, as the MC took home a total of 12 awards, setting a new record and bringing his all-time total to 27. Yet the show, broadcast live from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, still show delivered plenty of performance punch from a diverse roster of other artists, as well as a few head-scratching moments to boot.

The most-hyped performances were by acts with long track records – from Madonna, with her 35-year resume to the Jonas Brothers, coming back after nearly a decade on the shelf. The winners list went about as expected, with top nominees Cardi B and Drake cleaning up — so much so that he’s now the top BBMA winner of all time.

  • Taylor Swift went very big in opening the show with the first semi-live  performance of “Me!,” bringing out a marching band and dance team, then stripping down to a bedazzled micro-mini for the duet with the equally glammed-up Brendon Urie.
  • Madonna went even bigger for her epic take on “Medellin,” complete with holograms, CGI and an eye patch. It supposedly cost the Material Girl a pretty penny – five million bucks of her own cash – but it didn’t really add any spice to the shapeless song itself.
  • Producers lured Mariah Carey to the show by handing over this year’s Icon Award, which she accepted after belting out a series of hits, including “Always Be My Baby” and “Emotions.” Yes, she can still hit those crazy high notes.
  • And Paula Abdul proved she still has all those crazy moves, ending the show with a throwback mini-set of all her biggest hits. She didn’t do a lot of live singing, but she did dance up a storm – and so did her old cartoon pal, MC Skat Kat, who looks as good as ever.
  • Host Kelly Clarkson took her turn in the spotlight with a medley of other peoples’ hits – including “The Middle,” “Meant to Be” and Panic! at the Disco’s “High Hopes” – adding a bit of a giggle by starting the set while being mock evicted from her seat in the crowd. She book-ended that with a tear-jerking  last-hour version of her Ugly Dolls theme “Broken and Beautiful.”
  • Halsey took things in the other direction entirely, writhing on the floor for the first part of the dark “Without Me,” before bringing on a female partner for a sexually charged, vaguely violent dance piece.
  • Ciara leveled up in a big way with a very Janet Jackson-inspired version of “I’ve Been Thinkin’ About You,” which has “song of the summer” potential in a major way.
  • Dan and Shay put a twist on their hit “Speechless” by adding a third voice – in the form of pop star-turned-gospel singer Tori Kelly.
  • Ariana Grande cranked up the Broadway vibe with a staging of “7 Rings” that was straight out of Hairspray – with a little extra dose of girl power.
  • The Jonas Brothers pretty much picked up where they left off before their split, charming their way through a mix of oldies like “Jealous” and Joe’s  DNCE hit “Cake by the Ocean” and recent hit “Sucker.” Heck, they even let middle bro Kevin hit the stage for a little while.
  • It took Brendon Urie about two minutes to let the rest of his bandmates get some screen time during “Hey, Look Ma I Made It,” which featured more dancers and horn players than actual Panic! at the Disco dudes.
  • BTS took home a few awards over the course of the evening, and probably deserved a special one for loudest screams of the night – earned for “Boy With Luv,” which featured a barely-noticeable cameo from Halsey.
