Everything You Missed At The 2019 Billboard Music Awards


Thu, May, 2 by

Last night a plethora of stars descended on the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas for the 2019 Billboard Music Awards. Taylor Swift and Brendon Urie opened the show with the world premiere performance of Swift’s “ME!,” Drake walked away with 12 awards making him the most awarded artist in BBMAs history, and Paula Abdul performed a medley of her greatest hits for this year’s throwback moment.

But there’s a lot that happened off screen. Check out everything you didn’t see at last night’s Billboard Music Awards. And if you want to relive everything that did go down on screen, you can stream the whole show now over at CTV.ca


Joe Jonas and Sophie Turner got married in Vegas after the show by an Elvis impersonator. Diplo captured the ceremony on his Instagram story and live streamed it.


Halsey blacked out her Twitter and Instagram accounts after the show, leaving fans to speculate if this meant new music is on the way (she said in her Instagram story that last night was her last TV performance of “Without Me”).
