And winner is...Billboard Music Awards 2012 including performances..!

It was hardly surprising that this years Billboard Music Awards belonged to Adele. We think if she didn’t win most categories she was nominated for then we would have to call for a recount..! The Brit singer won a staggering twelve awards including Top Artist, Top Female Artist and Top Billboard 200 Album and Top Pop album for 21. Other big winners of the night we LMFAO for their track Party Rock Anthem picking up six awards, Lil Wayne and Coldplay receiving four awards and Lady Gaga picking two including Top Dance Act.

There were numerous live performances from Katy Perry, Justin Beiber, Kelly Clarkson and country singer sweetheart Carrie Underwood who we recently caught up with for a chat. Check out our interview here however the most moving part of the night was a touching tribute to recently passed away Donna Summer by UK singer Natasha Bedingfield and a similar tribute to Whitney Houston with a medley of her hits performed by John Legend and Jordin Sparks.
