Here’s Everything You Need To Know About The Billboard Music Awards

1

Unsurprisingly, Taylor Swift totally dominated the prestigious Billboard Music Awards with a whooping eight wins, while Kanye West, the ultimate loser of the event, was booed during his closing performance.

Swift got pretty emotional during the evening and made one of the cutest acceptance speeches ever. Here’s what she said:

“Oh, this is such a good night! Early this morning I watched my brother Austin graduate from Notre Dame … (and) to anyone who’s graduating this year … this is for you.”

When it comes to the beauty and style part of the event, Jennifer Lopez managed to wow us in a sheer dress only three weeks after she flaunted her perfect body in an equally revealing dress at the Met Gala.

And one of the biggest disappointments was definitely seeing Iggy Azalea’s new hair. Following in the footsteps of Kylie Jenner and Madonna, the rapper debuted shorter hair with pink-dyed tips – an edgy, but pretty outdated look.
