Adele Wins Big At Billboard Music Awards
There were many stars at the Billboards this Sunday but only one stood out from the rest! Adele achieved a total of 12 prizes at the prestigious Las Vegas ceremony, including Top Artist and Top Female Artist.
Adele’s record-breaking album 21 was the one that gave her lead above everyone else as she amassed several awards, such as Top Pop Album, Top Digital Media Artist and Top Billboard 200 Album.
LMFAO took home six trophies including Top Duo/Group and Top Hot 100 Song for their hit Party Rock Anthem.
Taylor Swift won Woman of the Year, while Lil Wayne took home the gong for Top Male Artist.
The show also paid tribute to a number of music legends who have recently passed away. Jordin Sparks performed her hit I Will Always Love You, while Whitney’s daughter Bobbi Kristina Brown was seen breaking down in tears in the audience.
Bobbi later took to the stage to accept the Millennium Award on behalf of her mother. She was joined on stage by Whitney’s sister-in-law Patricia Houston.
“I really want to say thank you to everyone who supported us through it all. Not just from when it was good but when it was bad, too. Thank you for showing that much love, because she deserved it… I’m just blessed to have been in such an incredible woman’s life. There will never be another one, ever,” Bobbi said.
The unexpected news of Bee Gees legend Robin Gibb’s death last night was also a part of the Billboards. The star passed away after a long battle with cancer.
