If case you missed the 2016 Billboard Music Awards last night below are all the winners, but first lets’ talk show highlights (and lowlights). First of all everyone is talking that Madonna Prince tribute—Twitter was a blaze with displeasure. The tribute seemed a little dullish even though Madonna looked great!

Rihanna sang her heart out for “Love On The Brain” off her Anti album.

Kesha garnered a standing ovation for her emotional Bob Dylan cover.

And Britney Spears showed us why she’s still hot (and still lip-syncing) and Fifth Harmony was amazing!

Celine Dion is and will always be a legend!
