After leading the 2020 Billboard Music Awards nominations with 16 nominations across 15 categories, Post Malone took home the most awards of the night with nine, including the top artist award.
The ceremony was held at the Dolby Theater in Los Angeles with no live audience in attendance. Due to the ceremony having to be postponed from its original date in April, the show mostly celebrated hits from last year, with Lil Nas X taking home four prizes for his hit single, Old Town Road.
The ceremony was hosted once again by Kelly Clarkson, and live performances came from artists including John Legend (who dedicated the song Never Break to his wife Chrissy Teigen), Alicia Keys, Demi Lovato, BTS, Sia, En Vogue, Doja Cat and country star Luke Combs.
Many artists used the platform to urge American viewers to vote in the upcoming US election.
