DRAKE BREAKS RECORD FOR THE MOST BILLBOARD MUSIC AWARDS

12 wins this year brought total to 27

Drake shattered the record for the most Billboard Music Awards wins on Wednesday night, bringing his overall total to 27 awards. The In My Feelingsartist took home 12 during the ceremony, including top artist.

It was a quite the night for the music community. Kelly Clarkson hosted the awards from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, and the show opened with a performance by Taylor Swift and Brendon Urie.

It wouldn’t be a party without Cardi B, and she took home multiple awards, including top rap female artist, Top Hot 100 song, top-selling song, top radio song, top collaboration and top rap song.

It was also a night of music icons. Madonna performed her new song, Medellin, with Maluma. Mariah Carey was the recipient of the ICON Award and sang some of her greatest hits, including No No, Always Be My Baby, Emotions, We Belong Together and Hero. Despite previous criticism for lip syncing, she appeared to be singing — most of the time.

But the most over-the-top moment of the evening came when Paula Abdul closed out the show with hits that took you back to the ‘80s, including Straight Up and Forever Your Girl. Her dance moves were fierce, and she proved she’s still got it.
