Billboard Music Awards 2017: Drake beats Adele's record with 13 wins Billboard Music Awards 2017: Drake beats Adele's record with 13 wins

"I want to thank my mom because I was really young, my mom said, 'You're not going to be the smartest, you're not going to be the prettiest, you're not going to be the most talented, but you're going to be special.'" Mothers do know best.

Attributing her five-decade career to "luck - and a little bit of something thrown in", she recounted advice that both her mother and first husband Sonny Bono had given her.

Korean boy band BTS, who won top social artist, earned one of the night's loudest ovations. Hudgens also sang some of Celine Dion's "I'm Your Lady" (Dion will perform later in the show).

Country music was also represented by Sam Hunt, who performed his hit "Body Like a Back Road" and Florida Georgia Line, who joined John Legend for a mashup of their songs "Surefire" and "H.O.L.Y".

After being introduced by her father Billy Ray Cyrus and her sister Noah Cyrus, Miley took the stage to perform a country-tinged version of the breezy pop song. She ended up choosing two extra sparkly outfits - and two wildly different wigs - to perform two of her biggest hits.

3 people fall 30 feet from Ferris wheel, flown to Harborview

Nicola Sturgeon rejects 'ludicrous' claims Tory surge could stop referendum bid
After all, three years - and an independence referendum - elapsed between the 2012 local elections and the 2015 general election. Meanwhile, Nuttall said his party was "caught in a Tory tidal wave" after losing all its 145 councillors in the local elections.

"And for the first time in years with trousers on", Noah Cyrus, standing next to father Billy Ray Cyrus, introduced her older sister, who was wearing white shorts and a cowboy hat. Legendary singer Cher does not look like she's slowing down and at 71 pulled off an epic performance at the 2017 Billboard Music Awards. She recently broke Aretha Franklin's record for most songs placed on the Billboard Hot 100 chart by a female artist. Ed Sheeran was one of many performers who got the honour to rock the stage at T-Mobile Arena.

Afterward, the rapper looked positively giddy as he posed with his 13 awards, which obviously couldn't fit in just one hand. The Chainsmokers and Halsey won the first televised award - top collaboration - for "Closer".

Another massive victor, The Chainsmokers, also took the stage to unexpectedly perform an acoustic rendition of "Young", a song off their latest effort "Memories..." He has 22 nominations. The early winners announced Sunday morning by dick clark productions included Beyonce, who won five and twenty one pilots, who won four.

Some are on tour, while Beyonce is pregnant with twins. It was unclear if Justin Bieber would attend the show. "I got the man responsible for being here, the love of my life", a triumphant Drake told the crowd while accepting the Top Artist trophy.
