Ellen Pompeo honors Taylor Swift at Billboard Music Awards.

From Jennifer Lopez’s nearly naked moment to the sexy Balmain looks on Kylie Jenner and Kendall Jenner, stars stepped out in curve-hugging ensembles that set many a tongue wagging.She may have put on an affectionate display with her new man Calvin Harris at the Billboard Music Awards on Sunday night, but it was Taylor Swift’s professional achievements which overshadowed her personal life for once. All eight of the big awards of the night (including Top Artist) went to Taylor, who also debuted her star-packed music video Bad Blood to open the show.

She won eight awards Sunday night at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, including top artist, and also opened the show with the premiere of her action-filled, star-studded music video for “Bad Blood.” “It’s unbelievable that the fans went out and proved what they proved this year, and that’s the only reason I won eight awards,” Swift said in an interview with The Associated Press following her wins. Swift, 25, one of the top-selling musical acts in the United States last year, also picked up awards for top female artist, top Billboard 200 artist and album and top hot 100 artist, among others. “This is such a good night,” Swift enthused as she collected the night’s big prize for top artist. Head scratch-inducing looks included Dencia’s lite-brite pantsuit and mismatching shoes combo, as well as Rita Ora’s asking-for-a-wardrobe-malfunction Fausto Puglisi confection.

Iggy Azalea kept it fresh by debuting pink tips on the red carpet (taking hair inspo from Madonna, perhaps?) while Chrissy Teigen stunned in a striped Balmain jumpsuit (yes, Olivier Rousteing’s brand essentially ran the show last night—and will rule H&M stores with an upcoming collaboration). British band One Direction was another multiple winner, winning top touring artist and top duo or group, while Iggy Azalea was a triple winner for top rap artist, rap song and top streaming artist.

Other musical highlights included Kelly Clarkson’s Invincible, Britney Spears and Iggy Azalea who let loose with Pretty Girls and Nicki Minaj rapping The Night Is Still Young. Pharrell Williams swept the R&B categories, taking honours for top song, album and artist while Jason Aldean took the prizes for top country song and album. Van Halen was the night’s first performance and rocked the crowd with its 1984 hit “Panama.” The Simple Minds, introduced by Molly Ringwald, performed “Don’t You (Forget About Me)” from “The Breakfast Club,” which is celebrating 30 years. Billboard magazine, which covers the music industry, said the finalists were based on fan interactions with music, including album and digital sales, touring, radio airplay, streaming and interactions on social media websites and other online sites for music. Thanks Iggy for getting me to do this.’ Then the blonde hip hop star chimed in: ‘When I first wrote this song it was leaked and it was called Leave It and it wasn’t a number one hit.

King and his renowned career; and a teary and shaky Meghan Trainor won hot 100 song and digital song for “All About That Bass.” Hosts Ludacris and Teigen offered some jokes Sunday night: The rapper described why he’s a good host, namechecking his music and acting credits. And David Lee Roth improvised a line in the middle of a rendition of Panama, saying: ‘I’m gonna reach down between my legs and gonna let Nicki Minaj help me put my seat back baby.’ One Direction returned to the stage to present John Legend with the gong for Top Radio Song.
