Billboard Music Awards producers fear Trump bashing

Hosts Ludacris left and Vanessa Hudgens speak at the Billboard Music Awards at the T Mobile Arena on Sunday

Hosts Ludacris left and Vanessa Hudgens speak at the Billboard Music Awards at the T Mobile Arena on Sunday

Drake bowed to her upon the pop stars' first meeting at last night's (May 21) Billboard Music Awards.

Cher, who has had a career lasting more than five decades, collected the award after treating the audience at the T-Mobile Arena to performances of Believe and Turn Back Time.

Cher, who turned 71 on Saturday, has earlier been vocal about Trump and had even called him an "obnoxious a**hole".

Celine Dion also took to the stage wearing a dramatic, structural gown, to perform an emotional rendition of her single My Heart Will Go On, the Oscar-winning song from the 1997 blockbuster Titanic, which celebrates its 20th anniversary this year.

Nominees for top Billboard 200 album are Beyonce's "Lemonade," Drake's "Views," Rihanna's "Anti", twenty one pilots' "Blurryface" and the Weeknd's "Starboy". This year's Icon Award recipient delivered a Las Vegas-worthy performance of her '90s dance hit "Believe" in a body-revealing outfit and white wig surrounded by dancers.

Ahead of a moment's silence, Dan Reynolds, singer of the rock band Imagine Dragons, paid tribute to Cornell as a "prolific songwriter, a legendary performer, a singer who had a voice for the ages and a philanthropist". Revealing that BTS had just sold out five arena shows around the US, the boyband star admitted that he thinks it's "crazy" that the K-Pop band are seeing so much success out of their native country South Korea. "This is the first time we've come to like an American award show and it's also Billboard", BTS told E!

And while she looks awesome, the singer said in her recent cover story with Billboard that she isn't quite fond of aging.

"This feels good but it feels so wrong because I love Drake so much", said Halsey (Drake's "One Dance" was also nominated for top Hot 100 song).

Drake and the Chainsmokers are top contenders with 22 nominations each. Performances included Lorde, Ed Sheehan, Miley Cyrus, Drake, Bruno Mars and Nicki Manaj.
