Billboard Music Awards: Three best acts (and one Miguel fan smash)
Last night’s Billboard Music Awards featured all sorts of great moments — at least, if you’re not Justin Bieber.
And while the Biebs getting booed may have been the highlight for more than a few schadenfreuders, there were plenty of other water-cooler moments, including Miguel’s accidental pro-wrestling body slam on a fan (don’t worry, she’s recovering), Taylor Swift’s insanely coordinated rendition of “22,” and Pitbull and Christina Aguilera going back to the source of the infamous ’80s sample in their “Feel This Moment.” (We’d love to show you an Afro’d Prince doing “Let’s Go Crazy,” but the Purple One does not allow his performance footage to live on the internets.)
And then, of course, there was EW cover boy Bruno Mars, who put on a reliably dazzling show, opening the broadcast with his newest single, “Treasure” and a whole lot of red satin. Click after the jump for clips of the night’s most memorable moments:
