Music came to life last night in Las Vegas for the 2014 Billboard Music Awards hosted by Ludacris! Give it up for Luda who I thought did a great job. Make that money baby!
The BBMAs definitely stepped up their game and put on a BIG show! The new girl on the scene Iggy Azalea rose to the occasion and put on a solid and fun performance with Charli XCX. She was there to show the music industry what she’s all about and Iggy delivered! That performance went right into the other new girl Ariana Grande who is this generation’s voice! Grande’s performance vocally of “Problem” was flawless, and Iggy came back on stage and did her thing! Take a look if you missed it!
I was so excited to see 5 Seconds of Summer performing at the BBMAs for the 1st time ever on television or any award show for that matter and Kendall Jenner had to RUIN their introduction! I’m still mad about that. Jenner explained what happened it you care to read that BS, click here. 5SOS seemed a little nervous for this big moment but they rocked it out and I LOVED it!
The Michael Jackson Hologram performance was just genius. Were you blown away like me?! Some people have said they were a little creeped out by seeing MJ back on stage, but I’m just amazed at how they create something so amazing! I was left speechless. Billboard revealed that this performance was six months of planning, choreography and filming, not to mention the development of new technology.
John Legend’s performance was so romantic and passionate – I just love him!! Legend locked eyes with his wife Chrissy Teigen and sang his heart out! “You & I” is actually about his model wife, who introduced the singer.
“When I wrote this song I was thinking about when Chrissy and I go out on date night, and sometimes there is all this pressure to look so good. Everybody is going to see you,” he said earlier this week at an intimate show Los Angeles’ The Emerson Theatre courtesy of Citi. “But this song is just letting her know that even before all the make-up and all those fancy clothes she’s already perfect in my eyes.”
Robin Thicke premiered his brand new song last night at the BBMAs called “Get Her Back” and he was perfect on stage! It’s not easy for an entertainer who’s going through personal things that the entire world knows about to get up on stage and serenade your ex-wife that you’re trying to get back! I loved how it was a fun, uptempo song and his voice sounded so good. Thicke also looked handsome as ever with his shorter shaved head. Robin Thicke would be hard to resist if he was singing songs like that to me! Good luck with this situation Paula!
A few afterthoughts…
Justin Timberlake gave some of the best speeches of the night! I was also happy to see Katy Perry win and Imagine Dragons. Kesha looked gorgeous!
I hope you enjoyed the BBMAs as much as me!
