Drake wins record 13 Billboard Music awards

Drake revels in his winning-ness backstage at the Billboard Music Awards in Las Vegas

Cher received this year's Icon award.

Drake also performed "Gyalchester" in the Fountains of Bellagio.

She later returned to the stage in a black catsuit and a large curly-haired wig, a throwback to her early 80s look. Drake did end up shouting Nicki Minaj out during the acceptance speech, but folks are still on this Vanessa shout out.

Dion, herself, became one of the most discussed parts of the star-studded event when she turned in an inspiring performance of "My Heart Will Go On," a track immortalized by its use in 1997's historically popular film, Titanic. She dropped a super-disco version of "Believe" and followed it up with '80s classic "If I Could Turn Back Time", complete with that '80s classic costume. "I can do a five-minute plank". "We love you. I'm like a year away from a Celine tat" pointing at his rib cage.

"I wanna say Ludacris, I know we haven't always seen eye to eye, but I've always been a big fan of yours, man", he said.

Dan Reynolds of Imagine Dragons said in the tribute that Cornell, who also sang lead in the band Audioslave, was a singer who had "a voice for the ages". What could have made Celine Dion so upset with Cher?

She told the audience Sunday night, "I wanted to do what I do since I was four years old, and I've been doing it for 53 years". Imagine Dragons will speak about Chris Cornell's influence on the band ahead of their performance.

With the low drama over who will win prizes, the Billboard gala instead offers musicians a wide television audience months after the U.S. entertainment industry's awards season.

"I know my father's looking down on all of us tonight and all of this love and support", the 20-year-old aspiring rapper said.
