Canadian Rapper Drake grabbed a record 13 wins at the 2017 Billboard Music Awards last night, eclipsing Adele’s previous record of 12 awards she had in 2012.
Drake, who also won Top Artist, Top Male Artist and Top Rap Album for “Views”, posed for photographers as shown here surrounded by his microphone-shaped trophies.
Blake Shelton, who’s popularity stock is riding high with The Voice, took home the award for Top Country Artist, and Top Country Song went to Florida Georgia Line.
Top Selling Song and Top Radio Song was the infectious “Can’t Stop the Feeling” by Justin Timberlake.
Cher looking way younger than her 71 years, was awarded the Icon Award for achievement. She gave a heartfelt speech after performing two of her biggest hits — “Believe” and “If I Could Turn Back Time”.
Canadian artists were not done yet as Celine Dion delivered an emotional performance of her award-winning song “My Heart Will Go On” from the soundtrack of the movie “Titanic” to mark 20 years since its release.
The three-hour show — hosted by hip-hop artist Ludacris and former High School Musical star Vanessa Hudgins — included performances by Miley Cyrus, the Chainsmokers, Nicki Minaj and Imagine Dragons
