Kate Beckinsale Sports A Plunging Neckline For The Billboard Awards

After concluding her performance, Cher was handed the Icon Award by fellow icon, Gwen Stefani.

One of Drake's awards he won during the BBMAs was when his latest album, Views, won the award for Top Billboard 200 Album.

Swapping her platinum wig for a huge, black curly one, Cher slipped into the sheer number to perform "If I could turn back time". His performance was one to remember, as well, delivering "Gyalchester" from current album More Life from a floating stage in the Fountains of Bellagio, backed by plenty of pyrotechnics.

During her acceptance speech, Cher revealed she wanted to be a singer since she was four-years-old and pointed out she's been doing it for 53 years now. And there was really nothing about me that led anyone to believe that I was going to be special. "You're not going to be the most talented, but you're going to be special, '" Cher said.

But the singer, who is engaged to Liam Hemsworth, couldn't hide her emotion by the end when her eyes teared up.

Dion picked up the very same award a year ago and came back to celebrate the 20th anniversary of Titanic by performing "My Heart Will Go On". She continued as the crowd hooted: "And I can do a five-minute plank, okay?"

Drake has made a habit of skipping awards shows in recent years - even the 2016 Grammys, for which he was a top-nominated artist.

Dion, who was Billboard's Icon past year, lost her husband and former manager Rene Angelil to cancer in 2016.

Formerly a member of Fifth Harmony, Camila Cabello departed the group previous year to pursue solo stardom, bringing her debut solo single Crying in the Club to the BBMAs. She impressed early with her rapping skills to show her love for Nicki Minaj, then tried a heartfelt rendition of Dion's "The Power of Love".
