Adele Tops 2012 Billboard Music Awards Count (VIDEO)

Filed under : Celebrity News

Last night’s Billboard Music Awards were a more reflective and thoughtful occasion than some have been, as performers paid tribute to Whitney Houston, the Beastie Boys’ Adam Yauch, Donna Summer, and the Bee Gees’ Robin Gibb, all of whom we have lost this year.

But of course the show must go one and LMFAO opened the ceremony in fine style with a performance of “Party Rock Anthem” that included both a dancing zebra and an unexpected striptease. Honestly. Kelly Clarkson and Katy Perry, who adorably brought her grandmother as a date, also gave great performances. I fact, everyone from The Wanted to Justin Bieber to Carly Rae Jepsen took a turn at singing their hits on stage. It was easy to forget there were awards to give out.

So who took home the Billboard 2012 Music Awards? Adele almost swept the (bill)board (sorry – couldn’t resist the pun), taking home 12 of the 18 awards she was nominated for, including Top Artist, Top Woman Artist, and Top Pop Artist. LMFAO followed with 6 awards while Coldplay and Lil Wayne each received 4 statuettes. Casting Crowns, Jason Aldean, and Lady Gaga also did well, taking home two prizes each. Whitney Houston received the Millennium Award (which her daughter, Bobbi Kristina Brown, tearfully accepted on her behalf) and Stevie Wonder was honored with the Billboard Icon Award.
