The Billboard Awards took place yesterday in my city fabulous Las Vegas,NV.With beautiful Ciara and laid-back Ludacris as it's host.The stars came out in droves to the show that took place in the newly built T-Mobile Stadium.

I stayed up long enough to catch a great performance from Rihanna and I watched as she also took home a Billboard for Chart Achievement. I enjoyed Justin Beiber performing as well as Pink! whom I've missed dearly.

I wasn't a huge fan of Madonna's performance but I love her effort and the good intentions she had for her Prince tribute. It was a bit boring and could've used some funk if you know what I mean!

The Weekend walked away with  seven billboards including top hip-hop song and top 100 artist.

It was such a touching moment to see Celine Dion and her son as she accepted a Lifetime Achievement Award and tried to keep herself composed and graceful.

Overall I'm not super disappointed but would've loved to see Diddy and Bey perform.
