The 2020 Billboard Music Awards were held without an audience on Wednesday evening inside the Dolby Theater in Los Angeles, with Kelly Clarkson serving as host. “Tonight is about the way music touches us all because music connects with us in so many ways, no matter who you are it moves us sometimes literally,” Clarkson said.
Post Malone was the biggest winner of the night, winning nine awards overall including Top Artist. Taylor Swift and Billie Eilish led with the most nominations, with Eilish taking home multiple awards including Top Female Artist.
Artists including John Legend, Alicia Keys Brandy, En Vogue, BTS and Luke Combs performed at the ceremony. Garth Brooks received the Icon Award, which was presented by his good friend, Cher. Brooks performed a medley of his greatest hits that included “The Thunder Rolls,” “The River,” “Callin’ Baton Rouge,” “Standing Outside the Fire,” “Dive Bar,” “Friends in Low Places” and “The Dance.”
