The Billboard Music Awards were held at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas this evening and, much like the Grammys, wisely minimized the amount of airtime devoted to acceptance speeches in favor of wall-to-wall performances. Sadly, most of the evening was dominated by artists who, to paraphrase the fairly toasted Kid Rock, were lip-synching to pre-recorded musical tracks.

Best Of The Brit Awards In Photos

The Brit Awards are underway in London with a hefty lineup of some of our favorite Brits. And what’s a British awards show without a performance by the very American Justin Timberlake? It’s all love. Music transcends. You Oughta Know artist Emeli Sande won big for British Female Solo Artist. One Direction took the stage while Harry gazed into Taylor Swift‘s eyes the entire time (we’re totally making that up) as she sat in the audience writing her next song (yeah, we made that up too). T. Swift also performed in what looks like a wedding gown. Other notables Rita Ora, Frank Ocean, Jessie Ware and Lana Del Rey graced the red carpet. What was up with all the black this year? Boring! Meanwhile Jessie J stole the show with her side peek-a-boob. Check out our gallery of the best of the Brit Awards.
