The 2019 Billboard Music Awards were held yesterday at the MGM Garden Arena in Las Vegas, hosted by Kelly Clarkson. Throughout the night, artists and visionaries took to the stage, and some walked away winners. Drake stole the night completely, snagging twelve wins, and becoming the most-awarded artist in BBMAs history. Over in dance music, however, The Chainsmokers nearly swept the categories, had they not been curiously absent from the Top Song category.
However, The Chainsmokers won Top Dance/Electronic Artist over Odesza, Marshmello, Kygo, or Calvin Harris. They also won Top Dance/Electronic Album over Clean Bandit, David Guetta, Kygo, and Major Lazer.
For Top Dance/Electronic Song, the win went to Zedd, Maren Morris, and Grey for their collaboration, “The Middle.” They managed to beat out DJ Snake’s “Taki Taki,” Calvin Harris & Dua Lipa’s “One Kiss,” Marshmello & Bastille’s “Happier,” and Tiesto & Post Malone’s “Jackie Chan.”
