Billboards is giving away trophy as the annual event happens tonight. Chrissy Teigan and Ludacris will serve as the hosts tonight at MGM Arena in Vegas!
The night is jampacked with a lot of performers! Taylor Swift will also premiere her new video, “Badblood” at the beginning of the show. There are so many guests cameo in this. Also, Kendrick Lamar had a remix of this song which will be out soon (I guess). That’s a first team-up of Taylor Swift and Kendrick. Haha.
Taylor Swift is winning almost all the awards that she is in. Wow.
Now check out the list of winners and performers tonight.
• Van Halen follows up that video premiere of Taylor Swift with their song, “Panama“.
• Fall Out Boy performs their new single, “Uma Thurman“. Wiz Khalifa raps the bridge part. Cool.
• Nick Jonas performs his hit song, “Jealous“ and the youngest of the Jonas Brothers managed to successfully breakaway from that boyband cliche and curse, he carve a name for himself.
• Meghan Trainor and John Legend sings a duet called “I’m Going To Lose You“ and this is probably the best track from Meghan’s debut album.
• Mariah Carey sings next where she started with “Vision Of Love“ and it was rough. Sad. Mariah can’t sing anymore. Girl is struggling. She then segues with her new song “Infinity“ and it’s even rougher. There are times the band swallowed her big time. She can’t even hit those high notes like she usually did effortlessly. Aww.
• Wiz Khalifa is back and he will be singing with Charlie Puth, who looks so cute. This is the biggest hit today, the themesong of Furious 7. They sing “See You Again“, a good tribute for Paul Walker. Aww. I feel like crying again. Damn this song.
• The Empire Casts are here. They will be singing two songs – “Conqueror“ and “You’re So Beautiful“ – and it’s not a bad live performance. Real decent. This show was a surprise hit, so I’m expecting the second season will be grander!
• Hozier is on stage now. He sings “Take Me To Church“ and he has 2 more singles out now but I am not sure if it hits the same love with this song. Aw. Is he a one-hit wonder?
• Little Big Town performs their song “Girl Crush“ which is making a big wave in US music scene nowz Aw. Then there’s Faith Hill joining them.
• Pitbull and Chris Brown are here too. They perform their collaboration “Fun“ which they just did last Wednesday on American Idol.
• Ed Sheeran sings “Bloodstream“ and it was simple yet very dynamic. But I wish he sang “Photograph“ instead because it is his newest single with a music video out now.
• Britney Spears and Iggy Azalea are out on stage – and lipsynching? – with their collaboration which video premiered recently, “Pretty Girls“. This really sounds like Gwen’s “Hollaback Girl“.
• Nicki Minaj is here on stage too. She sings this EDM track with David Guetta, from his album of course. This is “Hey Mamma“ and she is lipsynching too? Hm.
• Tori Kelly is the one to watch of Kia and she’s doing an acoustic version of her current hit song, “Nobody Love“ and she’s really doing so good. Trivia: She’s an ex-idol contestant who didn’t even pass the Hollywood rounds. Now look at her!
• The Simple Minds are up next and they are singing “Don’t You Forget About Me“. I love this song. Hehe.
• Kelly Clarkson is debuting her next single tonight. She’s the queen Idol! Such a vocal powerhouse and she really put Idol to modern day pop culture. She’s singing “Invincible“. She’s nailing it.
• We have a tribute to Ben E. King (R.I.P) and Imagine Dragons are on stage singing “Stand By Me“ for him.
• Kanye West performs too for the show’s finale and there are so many bleeping. This is…. weird.
