The Billboard Music Awards – The best ‘grams of the night

Last night the Billboard Music Awards took place in Las Vegas, Nevada – celebrating some of the biggest and best names in music. Think of it like US versions of The Brits, not necessarily as well-respected as its rivals (The Mercury Prize, The Grammys) but is still a decent barometer of the music scene of the moment.

Following performances from Miley Cyrus, Halsey, Ed Sheeran (via video link) and Cher, for some reason – it was Canadian rapper Drake who came out on top, picking up a massive 13 awards and breaking Adele’s record in the meantime. He wasn’t the only big name to scoop a handful of awards – Beyonce picked up Best Touring Artist, Twenty One Pilots for Top Group and Coldplay for Best Rock Group.

But when stars convene at awards shows, it turns into something a little bit more than just picking up gongs. Here’s the night, as told by the stars who were there.

Drake clearly had a lovely time with all his awards
