The 2015 Billboard Awards went down over the weekend at MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.
Our friends Taylor Swift and Sam Smith cleaned up! Swift won eight out of her 14 nominations including Artist of the Year, while Smith scored three trophies and beat out Drake to take home Top Male Artist.
Smith, whose recent vocal hemorrhage meant he couldn’t perform on the night, gave his acceptance speech in the form of Love Actually-esque cue cards. The ceremony also saw One Direction thank their former bandmate Zayn, Kendrick Lamar and Taylor Swift unleashed their star-studded “Bad Blood” video, Mariah Carey performed on the Billboard stage for the first time since 1998, and Kanye performed a very fiery version (literally) of his new cut “All Day.”
