Billboard Awards Best Performances: The Top 10
Beyonce knows how to start a show! The singer opened the 2011 Billboard Music Awards with her new hit. Being Bey, she empowered women everywhere to “run the world.” Bow down.
Taylor has always been the cutest. Her 2013 Billboard performance proves just that. During “22,” she wore a unicorn shirt! As much as we love this performance, we have a feeling the premiere “Bad Blood” music video is going to top everything.
We need a moment. There’s nothing sexier than when Justin performs “Boyfriend.” It’s just hot, hot, hot! Excuse us, we’re going to go jam out to this on repeat.
Slay, ladies, slay! Carrie and Miranda may be singing the lyrics “something bad” over and over again, but this 2014 performance was anything but!
This song gets us every. single. time. John’s voice is just so soothing. We also can’t get over the fact that he pledges his love to Chrissy Teigen every time he sings this song. Cue all the tears.
Rihanna and Britney’s 2011 Billboard Awards performance? Yeah, it was pretty epic. Sexy doesn’t even begin to describe these two on stage.
If this song doesn’t instantly put you in tears, we don’t know what will. To honor the late Whitney Houston, Jordin belted out her biggest hit. It was magical.
Katy knows how to put on a show! Years before she would perform at the Super Bowl, Katy showed off her amazing theatrics at the Billboard Music Awards.
If you need a throwback, this is the performance for you. In unforgettable multi-colored trench coats, the boy band performed on of their biggest hits. We’ll never get over it.
It’s time for some rap! Nicki and Lil Wayne are absolutely electric on stage. There’s no doubt about it!
Destiny’s Child is comprised of a heavenly trinity, so anytime the ladies hit the stage together, it’s absolutely incredible. This medley will undoubtedly go down as one of the most memorable BBMA performances in history!
