Taylor Swift, One Direction & Iggy Azalea Win Big at the 2015 Billboard Music Awards—Read the Full Recap Here!.

In their attempt to continue their growth as a serious award show, those organizing the 2015 BIllboard Music Awards made sure that every minute of this year’s ceremony was worth watching, packing the three hour-long program with incredible performances by both newcomers and some of the biggest names in music. This year’s event was hosted by none other than Ludacris and Chrissy Teigen—who were quite the dynamic duo, to say the least—and held at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.

One Direction, Britney Spears, Kelly Clarkson, Mariah Carey, Kanye West and many, many more brought the house to their feet with their unique performances throughout the night. Taking cues from the likes of Madonna and Gwen Stefani who have been spotted sporting dip-dyed locks, the 24-year old showed up with her basketball player beau, Nick Young, with a two-week-old blunt lob featuring pink-hued tips.

Vocalists Kelly Clarkson and Mariah Carey proved to the world that though newer artists like Ariana Grande may be known for their impressive chops, these women can still teach them a thing or two. The star-studded cast—which included Selena Gomez, Karlie Kloss, Ellen Pompeo, Mariska Hargitay, Cara Delevingne, Lena Dunham, and basically every other famous friend of the pop star—was action-packed and definitely didn’t disappoint. T.Swift had been slowly releasing the cast members for the Joseph Kahn-directed video on Twitter and finally gave fans what they’d been waiting for tonight!

To create the look, Stephen started by washing her hair and applying Bumble and Bumble Surf Spray ($34) on her wet hair, which she then blow-dried—not with a round brush since she didn’t want lose Azalea’s natural waves. King, new name Tori Kelly made the most of her opportunity to impress the crowd with breakout hit “Nobody Love”, and Wiz Khalifa and Charlie Puth joined with violinist Lindsey Stirling to pay tribute to fallen actor Paul Walker with the number one hit “See You Again”. T.Swift then walked away the winner for the Top Billboard 200 Award and turned heads when she hugged her new beau Calvin Harris on her way up to the stage. Azalea and Britney Spears performed their single, “Pretty Girls,” and the blonde bombshell also took home the Top Rap Song award for her hit song, “Fancy,” featuring Charli XCX.

Best Rap Song at the BBMAs went to, drumroll, Iggy Azalea and Charli XCX for “Fancy” shortly before Khalifa sang his Paul Walker tribute track, “See You Again.” Celine Dion gave the award for Top Male Artist to the night’s major winner: Sam Smith—who proudly accepted silently via video as he was resting from vocal surgery. Not only was over one minute of his five minute-long set bleeped out (including several long snippets), but the pyrotechnics obscured any view of West, making it hard to see anything he was doing. Several familiar faces from the hit show Empire then got up and showed off their musical chops during an awesome performance presented by Cookie Taraji P.

Fellow Brit Ed Sheeran then gave a beautiful acoustic performance of “Bloodstream” just moments before “All About That Bass” won Billboard’s Top Hot 100 Song. The 33-year-old singer rolled in her mini-me on a large red stroller and brought along her stylish floral changing bag, which every mom knows is a necessity for a good night out.

Clarkson’s breathtaking rendition of her inspiring single with the lyrics “What was I running for/ I was hiding from the world/ I was so afraid/ I felt so unsure/ Now I am invincible,” garnered attention from all eyes in the room. Nick Jonas even admitted his excitement to see the diva sing live and dished about it to Entertainment Weekly. “Kelly Clarkson is one that I always enjoy watching,” he explained. “She has such a great voice.”
