The 2011 Billboard Music Awards Recap

Beyonce "Run The World (Girls)"

Nicki Minaj & Britney Spears - Medley

Rihanna & Britney Spears "S&M (Remix)"

Mary J. Blige & Lil' Wayne "Someone To Love Me (Naked)"

OneRepublic & Far East Movement - Medley

The Black-Eyed Peas - Medley

The Billboard Music Awards made their triumphant return by honoring Beyonce, who also gave the night's best performance, with the Millennium Award. The ever-robotic Britney Spears opened the show with Rihanna & effectively closed it by performing the "Till The World Ends" remix with Nicki Minaj following the latter's own bubbly performance of "Super Bass". Rihanna also walked away with the Top Female Artist & Top Radio Songs Artist awards as well as the trophy for Top Rap Song for "Love The Way You Lie" with Eminem. Mary J. Blige performed my JAM, while OneRepublic, with "Good Life", kicked off a joint performance with Far East Movement, which Ryan Tedder joined afterwards to perform their collaboration "Rocketeer" before they took over. In addition, The Black-Eyed Peas performed a medley of "Just Can't Get Enough" & "I Gotta Feeling" (with hints of "Boom Boom Pow" & "Don't Stop The Party" thrown in), & received the award for Top Duo/Group. Non-attendee (as far as I can tell) Usher picked up three awards: Top R&B Artist, Top R&B Album for Raymond Vs. Raymond, & Top R&B Song for "OMG". To check out all the winners, click HERE.
