Celine Dion Steals the Show at Billboard Music Awards While Drake Wins Big
Here are the highs and lows of the awards show.
To celebrate the 20th anniversary of “My Heart Will Go On,” Celine Dion had the audience on their feet with an incredible performance at Sunday’s Billboard Music Awards.
The Canadian singer wore a white gown as she belted out the theme from Titanic.
Lea Michele posted photos meeting Dion backstage. The former Glee star was so overcome with emotion at meeting her role model that Dion had to wipe away her tears.
The big winner of the night was Dion's fellow Canadian, Drake, who took home 13 awards, breaking Adele's previous record of most wins in one night.
As the “Hotline Bling” singer returned to the stage time and time again and have shout-outs to his famous friends in the audience. But one particular compliment had people talking.
“I want to say that, Vanessa Hudgens, you look incredible tonight,” he said.
Nicki Minaj, who has been romantically linked to Drake, clearly wasn't amused.
“Excuse me? What about me!?” she was seen saying.
Later in the show, Drake returned to the stage for another award and made amends to Minaj.
“I'm so glad we found our way back, and I love you, and I couldn't see it any other way,” he said.
Minaj opened the show with a nine-minute medley of some of her hits.
The show also paid tributes to late Soundgarden singer Chris Cornell who passed away Thursday at 52.
Dan Reynolds of Imagine Dragons led the tributes in a heartfelt speech about the singer.
“Soundgarden and Audioslave's Chris Cornell was a true innovator, a musical architect and a pioneer on the cutting edge of the Seattle grunge movement," Reynolds said. "He was a prolific songwriter, a legendary performer, a singer who had a voice for the ages and a philanthropic whose Chris and Vicky Cornell Foundation helped so many children around the world."
