Billboard Music Awards 2015: Fashion, Performances and Winners

Red carpet Sundays are always a nice way to wind down the weekend, am I right ladies? …. and some gents? 😉 The 2015 Billboard Music Awards of course start off with a pre-show of red carpet fashion and interviews of all artists coming together for an exciting evening in the city that never sleeps: Las Vegas, Nevada. With dynamic, new performances by popular entertainers and collaborations never seen before, the Billboard Music Awards is an evening dedicated to the music and an honor given by Billboard, the ultimate music popularity chart.

VIRTVE’s favorite killer performances

I need to start off with my girl Tori Kelly,who was honored with KIA’s “One To Watch” performance. She absolutely killed it! For more about Tori Kelly Tori Kelly, Ladies and Gentlemen.

Nick Jonas nailed his performance of “Jealous” and impressed us with some guitar skills at the 2015 Billboard Music Awards. Earlier in the evening, girlfriend Olivia Culpo explained how she didn’t think the top of the chart hit was about her, but it most definitely is! Who can blame the youngest Jonas? She’s gorgeous!

Kelly Clarkson is back and sounds just as great as ever! Last night she sang her single “Invincible”, which had impressive vocal moments and left me with confidence that this star isn’t going anywhere soon.

Love me some “Pretty Girls” Iggy Azalea & Britney Spears had a fun, upbeat performance outside of the MGM in Las Vegas for viewers. Britney had a lot of choreography and did what she does best, entertain! Iggy also came through loud and clear with her solo and added the sassy attitude to the mix.

A man, his vocals and guitar? Yes please! Ed Sheeran never ceases to amaze. Incredible singer, songwriter and draws his audience in with the words and emotion behind every song. Ed performed “Bloodstream”.
