Absolutely no surprises there! Fetty Wap won Top New Artist at the Billboard Music Awards at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas on May 22 in front of some of the biggest names in pop music, including Justin Bieber, Britney Spears and Madonna. We can’t say it isn’t well deserved! Well done, Fetty.
Well that was a tough category to choose from, but we have a winner! The Billboard Music Awards drew up few surprises on May 22, especially when selecting Top New Artist, as Fetty Wap, 24, was victorious at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. I mean, we sort of half-expected it, right? YEAH!
It was a tough category to choose from this year, as Fetty was up against OMI, Charlie Puth, Silento and Bryson Tiller. But at the end of the day, for his big hit “Make You Smile” it’s totally clear why he won! It was just a pity we didn’t get to see his live speech because the live coverage didn’t show him collecting his award!
But either way, he must have been absolutely chuffed to pieces to win ahead that kind of talent. We did have a sneaky feeling for Bryson, but you can’t argue in the end that Fetty deserved it.
Before we even got a sniff of Top New Artist, we were treated to some awesome performances, including a musical medley from Britney Spears, Justin Bieber and Fifth Harmony, who all rocked. Shawn Mendes also sang his hit “Stitches” admirably, and was absolutely adorable. Go get ’em, Shawn!
It’s been another great year for music, and although all these artists deserve an awards for making AMAZING waves in their career this year, there can sadly only be one winner.
