There were some powerful performances that lit up the stage at the Billboard Music Awards for this year ranging from the fiery rendition of “All Day” by Kanye West to the powerful and touching chords of Van Halen;s “Panama”. There were some really beautifully dressed stars that absolutely glowed in their evening attires and some malfunctions too, of course. An award show will always be incomplete without them. There were some hilarious moments too that will make the night memorable for everyone.
