Adele and The Weeknd dominate Billboard Music Awards 2016

MUMBAI: Billboard Music Awards 2016 took place on May 22, 2016, in Las Vegas. While, Stevie Wonder and Madonna performed a tribute to Prince onstage, during the 2016 Billboard Music Awards at T-Mobile Arena, Celine Dion gave an emphatic revival of Queen's ‘The Show Must Go On’ - with the help of full string orchestra and a guest appearance by Lindsey Stirling. Kesha and Ben Folds enthralled the entire T-Mobile Arena with their evocative rendition of the 1964 Bob Dylan classic ‘It Ain't Me Babe’ – which earned a standing ovation from the crowd. Along with Rihana’s top-notch vocal performance, Britney Spears’s medley of her classics and Bieber’s dynamic performance of ‘Company’ and ‘Sorry’, the whole endeavour was amusing.
