The 2018 Billboard Music Awards aired on NBC last night and the show was packed, wall to wall, with action, our favorite celebs, and entertainment. Kelly Clarkson didn't disappoint, playing her role as the award show host that America needed, delivering a heartfelt and powerful dedication to the victims of the Santa Fe shooting before the show began. As always, we walked away from the show with massive pride for our favorite artists being awarded for their work and an arsenal of new gifs from all of the most amazing reactions.
Here's a round up of some of last night's highlights.
Khalid & Shawn Mendes perform their duet 'Youth' with the show choir from Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, one of the latest schools to be rocked by a mass shooting incident in Florida. Arguably one of the most powerful moments of the night.
Zedd, Maren Morris, and Grey get everyone on their feet with their chart topper 'The Middle.' Everyone from Ne-Yo to Halsey, Derek Hough and Rickey Thompson were moving to that performance.
Ariana Grande stole the show with her second live performance of 'No Tears Left To Cry' since she debuted the song on Jimmy Fallon.
And Dua Lipa basically recreated her 'New Rules' music video on the BBMA stage. Let's talk about that flamingo...
Taylor Swift gave us a little different taste of acceptance speeches when she received her award for Top Selling Album, saying that she felt misunderstood before releasing 'Reputation.'
Janet Jackson took a shot at those who oppose the #MeToo movement, backing the women who have spoken out and the men that support them.
And Kelly Clarkson spoke the words that were on everyone's mind regarding the shooting in Santa Fe.
