May 22, 2017

Drake was the big winner at the 2017 Billboard Music Awards, where he took home 13 trophies--including Top Artist, Top Male Artist and Top Billboard 200 Album for Views. In doing so, Drake broke the record previously held by Adele (12) for most wins in one night. He also made sure to use his time onstage to hit on host Vanessa Hudgens by telling her, "You look incredible tonight." While Beyoncé wasn’t present at the ceremony, she won five awards--including Top Female Artist, Top R&B Artist and Top R&B Album for Lemonade. The Chainsmokers also nabbed four awards, including Top Hot 100 Sonf for “Closer” (feat. Halsey) and Top Dance/Electronic Artist, and Cher was recognized with the 2017 Icon Award.
