Billboard Music Awards Highlights

Because I'm a sucker for anything music and award show related, I will continue to watch every award show regardless of how downhill the hosting goes and how they progressively become the "Taylor Swift Show" (nothing against T-Swift).

Here are the highlights from last night:

Taylor Swift premiered her "Bad Blood" music video starring everyone.
I personally didn't think it lived up to the hype (still love her, though).

One Direction won Top Touring Artist and Top Duo/Group.
Yes, I'm a 1D fan, don't hold it against me. I promise I like "good music" as well. There was a Zayn shout-out (fans everywhere died a little) and then Billboard cut them off before Liam could do it a second time.

Sam Smith had the best acceptance "speech" of all time.
It was like watching Love Actually all over again. I love him. I hope his voice recovers quickly. I also now demand that everyone writes down their acceptances from now on.

Chris Brown kind of made a comeback and I was (once again) not let down.
I don't like to admit this, but Chris Brown always comes through. (I think dancers are internally programmed to like Chris Brown). A+ for getting your life together.

Ed Sheehan gave the best performance.
He's super talented and his solo-performance was incredible. Watch it here if you haven't seen it. Also, he had a red solo cup in his hand the entire night, which just makes me laugh.

Kanye West closed the night (also, Kendall and Kylie were booed).
Once again, you couldn't actually see him--and I think he holds the record for the longest period time of the audio being completely cut out due to censoring.

  1. I love Chrissy as the host. Not a lot of people get her humor lol you always have to think way to hard to get it lol! I actually thought Tori Kelly's performance was the best lol even Ed tweeted that 😛 Kanye's set was horrible. He should have picked a different song lol! I actually loved Taylor's new video but I felt like it could have been longer lol! Like tell more of a story like what Justin Timberlake does with his music videos lol!

  2. Tori Kelly was really good too! I liked her song so much better acoustic. I liked the idea of Taylor's video, but basically the entire thing was just introducing her famous friends..then it was over!
