The performance tributes and reside performances packed 2012 Billboard Music Awards were held on Sunday night at MGM Grand Hotel in Las Vegas. The prime winners of the evening incorporate both surprising and extremely anticipated names like Katy Perry, Taylor Swift, Justin Bieber, Adele and LMFAO. The three-hour show was brilliantly hosted by Modern day Family stars Ty Burrell and Julie Bowen.
Due to the loss of many singers in the music world this year, including the two current deaths in the final week alone, a number of tribute performances were produced. The most anticipated tribute performance of the evening committed to Whitney Houston’s was created by Jordin Sparks. Singer Robin Gibb (who died on Sunday) was honorably mentioned at the event along with many other late singers such as Donna Summer time and Adam Yauch. A whooping total of 15 live performances were made at the event which includes the performances of Cee Lo Green, Linkin Park, Chris Brown and Usher.
Now lets talk about the winners, Adele literally rocked the occasion by winning a dozen awards which even integrated the largest awards of the evening such as Leading Female Artist, Top Hot 100 Artist, Prime Pop Album and Leading Option Song. LMFAO comes next for finding six awards. Following LMFAO are Lil Wayne and Coldplay who both took four awards each. Lady Gaga, Casting Crowns and Jason Aldean come next with every single of them winning two awards.
Legendary singer Stevie Wonder was honored with ‘Icon Award’. Taylor Swift was crowned the ‘Billboard Lady of the Year’ where as Justin Bieber was named the most social artist of the year. Kaye Perry grabbed one particular of the most precious award of the night as nicely as of her career – the prestigious ‘Spotlight Award’ (previously only awarded to the moon walking legend Micheal Jackson). She received this award for becoming the quite 1st female singer in history to garner five Billboard number ones from a single album (Teenage Dream). Katy Perry also brought her 91 year old grandmother to the music award show as her date and debuted her new single “Wide Awake”.
Miley Cyrus on the other hand also got widespread consideration, but not for any award, rather for her revealing wardrobe.
