Drake wins early at the Billboard Awards

Beyonce and twenty one pilots each won five awards, while the Chainsmokers - who tied Drake with 22 nominations - won four awards, including top Hot 100 song for Closer with Halsey.

"I want to say, Vanessa Hudgens, you look incredible tonight", he added.

The 2017 Billboard Music Awards belonged to Drake, who surpassed Adele's record for the most Billboards awards in a single night.

Dan Reynolds of the rock band Imagine Dragons led a moment of silence for Chris Cornell, who died Thursday.

In a lovely, Met Gala-ready white gown, she belted out My Heart Will Go On, the Oscar-winning song from Titanic. The Canadian singer returned to celebrate the Oscar-winning song 20 years after it topped the charts as the theme to the blockbuster "Titanic".

Her performance, along with the revealing jumpsuit, also received praise from viewers on social media. During his acceptance speech, Drake reportedly hit on the show's co-host, Vanessa Hudgens.

On his Instagram, Roach wrote, "God sent me an angel ... today is exactly one year from the first day we met". She was joined by veteran host Ludacris.

We've all seen Cher's awesome rendition of her 1999 club anthem Believe, but Céline Dion was also on hand to perform one of the decade's other smash hits.

Songwriter Linda Perry (some credits include Christina Aguilera's "Beautiful" and Gwen Stefani's "What You Waiting For?") wrote this piano ballad for the Freeheld soundtrack and handpicked Cyrus to sing it - with good reason: On The Ellen Show, Cyrus gave an understated, moving performance of the hopeful, defiant track with Perry on keys.

She paired the breezy single with a muted performance with acoustic instruments and a simple white crop top and wide brimmed hat.
