Prince, Chris Brown, Miguel, Nicki Minaj, Lil’ Wayne And More Perform At The 2013 Billboard Music Awards

Last night it was on and popping in Las Vegas at the 2013 Billboard Music Awards.  Entertainers from all different genres came together to celebrate the best selling artists in music.

There were so many performances.  Bruno Mars opened the show with a performance of his latest single “Treasure.”  Justin Bieber, Will.I.Am, Akon, Pitbull, Christina Aguilera, Jennifer Lopez, Selena Gomez, Taylor Swift, Macklemore and Ryan Lewis all took the stage last night and gave great performances.  However, it was the performances from Miguel, Prince, Chris Brown and Nicki Minaj that had everyone buzzing.

Miguel maybe had the most memorable and shocking performance of the night.  He took the stage to sing his chart topping single “Adorn,” and things were going just fine until Miguel decided to jump over the crowd and ended up landing on a girls head in the audience.  Ouch!

Luckily, the girl was okay!  Miguel tweeted after his performance, “got caught up in the moment, thank goodness Khyati is okay.”  Check out the performance below:


Chris Brown also hit the stage and gave an exciting performance filled with his best MJ moves and even some added acrobatics.  He performed his new single “Fine China” from his upcoming album X.  After his set, Chris received a little backlash about his vocals.  He tweeted, “Lil hoarse for the performance but it happens. Good s*** otherwise.”  Check it out below:


Nicki Minaj and Lil’ Wayne were also in the building and the two performed Nicki’s single “High School.”  Nicki’s performance took the PG-13 show to the next level when she proceeded to give Lil’ Wayne a lap dance towards the end of her set.  It was definitely entertaining watching Lil’ Wayne’s facial expressions.  Watch Nicki Minaj bring out her inner stripper below:



Sidenote: Nicki won the first award of the night for “Best Rap Artist.”  She was up against Psy, Pitbull, Flo Rida, and her Young Money label mate Drake.

The most exciting moment of the show for me was Prince.  He was given a special tribute by Janelle Monae and Erykah Badu, who were dressed in their Q.U.E.E.N. attire.  He also received Billboard’s first “Icon Award.”

Prince hit the stage and kicked off his performance with a new rendition of his hit from Purple Rain “Let’s Go Crazy.”  Watch Prince get down below:







  1. Good day! I simply wish to give an enormous thumbs up for the nice data you may have here on this post.

    I will likely be coming back to your weblog for extra soon.
