Kelly Clarkson Raps, Sings and mimes Billboard 2018 hit songs…
She was not trying to be a one man band, it was part of the award opening fanfare. She broke out into a medley of songs starting with -Maren Morris’ “My Church,” Sam Smith’s “Too Good at Goodbyes,” Kendrick Lamar’s “HUMBLE.”, Imagine Dragon’s “Thunder,” Khalid’s “Young, Dumb and Broke,” Bruno Mars and Cardi B’s “Finesse (Remix),” Ed Sheeran’s “Shape of You,” Shawn Mendes’ “There’s Nothing Holdin’ Me Back,” and Taylor Swift’s “Look What You Made Me Do.”
The point she rapped Kendrick Lemar’s humble was everything. Trust the mischievous camera(s) to zoom into the artist she was singing at each moment- it was fun (watch below)
Who is Normani ??
Well, thats the question everyone has been asking Google after she slayed the Billboard stage with a feisty and sexy performance.
Normani, is an American singer and dancer, best known as a member of the girl group Fifth Harmony which was formed on the second season of The X Factor. Camilla cabello was also part of the group but split to go solo
Did Bruno actually Kneel down to present the Icon awards to Janet Jackson – OKuurrrr!
Well her acceptance speech was Iconic… she is the first black woman to receive an Iconic status at Billboard Music Awards
“Everything we lack, God has in abundance: compassion, sensitivity, patience and boundless love… I thank God for giving me the precious energy that lets me live my life as an artist who every day seeks to expend my capacity to love.”
Taylor swift took home two of the biggest trophies: Top selling Album and Top female artist (you go girl)
Nick Jonas and his muscles showed up at the red carpet and those biceps had everyone talking #ripped
Our girl Cardi is still on the Rise She beat Nicki Minaj to clinch the award for best female rapper
Vocal power is redefined as …Demi Lovato and Christina Aguilera performing their new single fall in line
Moment of action not moment of silence…
Kelly Clarkson was pleading her case for victims of gun violence referring specifically to the recent high school shooting in Texas. According to her its time to move from a moment of silence to a moment of action ( I agree)
Clearing the Trophy table like its a birth right- Kendrick Lemar & Ed-Sheeran
These two cleaned up the trophy table with six awards each.
Ed-sheeran won – Best artist, best radio song artist, best male artist, hot 100 artist , song sale artist and best radio song
Kendrick Lemar won– Best rapper male, billboard 200 album, streaming song artist, best streaming song (audio), best rap album and best rap artist
I agree with you if you think the award categories all sound the same (see Billboard.com for more details)
Everyone was tripping for BTS – A boy group from South Korea (dont ask me why). They performed their latest single fake love and are the first Korea music group to perform at the billboard music awards
Jennifer Lopez also performed- am sure you know what that means (watch)
And the best dressed goes to…
Grammy’s outfits are supposed to be sassy and fun. A typical Grammy outfit should bring bear the creativity of music; these are our top three picks. Taylor swift and Ciara looked good but not billboard award fun.
The legends also came to slay- Salt N pepa closed the show
The show went out with a bang, with Salt-N-Pepa performing “Shoop,” “Let’s Talk About Sex” and “Push It,” before En Vogue joined them on stage to sing “Whatta Man.”
Janet Jackson also performed a medley of her hit tracks
Khalid won the award for best new artist
In summary guys.. this is most of what you need to know
