News: List of All The Winners From The 2018 Billboard Music Awards

The Billboard Music Awards took place in Las Vegas last night, and it was an evening of triumphs for the likes of Janet Jackson, Ed Sheeran and Taylor Swift.

For Jackson, the ceremony meant a chance to pick up the Icon Awards and deliver her first performance in nine years – an unmistakeable medley of all her iconic hits.

 But while Swift and Sheeran also won big, the ceremony opened on an emotional note with Kelly Clarkson delivering a heartfelt tribute to the victims of Friday’s shooting in Santa Fe, which left 10 people dead.

Other highlights included a hugely anticipated performance from Korean boy bond sensations BTS, who gave their debut live performance of ‘Fake Love’.
