Drake, with trophies in his arms and at his feet, is the record-holder now, surpassing Adele’s record previous year at the Billboard Music Awards.
She returned in another iconic look: teased curly black hair and leather jacket over a sparkling jumpsuit as she sang “If I Could Turn Back Time”.
Twenty One Pilots and Beyonce were also big winners on the night, with five BBMAs apiece, while The Chainsmokers earned four.
Meanwhile, Drake broke Adele’s record for the most wins at the Billboard Music Awards, taking home a massive 13 trophies last night. He won the likes of Top Artist, Top Male Artist, Top Billboard 200 Artist, Top Hot 100 Artist, and Top Rap Artist.
Cher has always been a gorgeous woman, and she has freaking maintained.
BTS’s group award follows South Korean trailblazer PSY, who became the first K-pop solo artist to win at the Billboard Music Awards back in 2014, for Top Streaming Song, “Gangnam Style”. You’re not going to be the prettiest. “I’ve been doing it for 53 years”, she told the crowd, according to Rolling Stone. After performing “My Heart Will Go On”, Celine Dion caught Cher performing on the TVs backstage.
The rapper posted a picture of himself and his father with Dion, who sang “My Heart Will Go On” from “Titanic” to mark the 20th anniversary of the film.
Drake will walk into the 2017 Billboard Music Awards already a victor: He earned 10 early awards Sunday morning.
“Oh, I don’t know”, a rather flattered-looking Celine replied, before introducing her teenage son Rene-Charles, to the rapper.
Ludacris and Vanessa Hudgens will host the show, which begins at 8 p.m.
The star, who turned 71 the day before, said her success was “mostly luck” as she collected the honour from Gwen Stefani. “Cher remains one of the most prolific performers of all time”.
