Billboard Music Awards 2017: Who won what

This year, Billboard Music Awards acquired a lot of attention.

Where on one hand, Celine Dion’s mega hit single “My Heart Will Go On” celebrated 20 years and Nicki Minaj broke chart records, on the other hand, BTS’ entry into an American award show became an iconic moment for the K-pop world.

It was indeed a great show. Fans got to see a lot of great performances but absence of certain artists like Shawn Mendes left a void in the event. But the big question is, who won what?

ICON AWARD

Cher

The competition was really tough. With icons like Drake, Beyonce and Rihanna competing against each other for an award, it would have been so difficult to choose the winner.

Hotline Bling hitmaker Drake took home most awards and deservedly so.
