      Billboard Music Awards 2021 Winners List: The Weeknd Named Top Artist, BTS & Taylor Swift Bag Top Honours

      |

      The 2021 Billboard Music Awards that took place on Monday, May 24, (IST) is one of the biggest music nights of the year. The awards show was hosted by Nick Jonas, who last year won three BBMAs, with the Jonas Brothers in the categories Top Duo/Group, Top Radio Songs Artist and Top Radio Song. The singer recently suffered an injury amid filming and was accompanied by his wife Priyanka Chopra as a presenter.

      While artists like DaBaby, Taylor Swift, Carrie Underwood, The Weeknd and more went head-to-head for top honours, the ceremony also saw performances from Billboard Icon Award winner Pink, along with nominees Bad Bunny, Karol G, Glass Animals, AJR, Twenty One Pilots, BTS and more. Social Artist winner BTS performed their recent release and second English track, 'Butter'.

      The Weeknd had created quite the stir after calling out the Grammys. However, the singer received 16 BBMA nominations in categories including Top Artist, Top Male Artist, Top Hot 100 Song and Top Billboard 200 Album. While DaBaby received 11 nominations, followed by Gabby Barrett with a close nine, and Megan Thee Stallion, Bad Bunny and Chris Brown received seven each.
