Over the course of 3 decades, Billboard Music Awards have given us unforgettable memories. From watching Janet Jackson win her first BBMA in 1990 to celebrating BTS win ‘top duo/group’ award in 2019, the awards night has evolved over time. Read below to revisit three special moments in the history of the awards that people still talk about!
Who run the world? GIRLS!
Imagine yourself watching Beyoncé perform live on stage with a group of amazing and talented girls. Got chills right? Her 2011 performance holds significance in the history of the Billboard Music Awards. Watch the video below!
The American singer captured our hearts with an empowering act. Queen B paid tribute to women across the globe by performing her single ‘Who run the world’. The holographic effects and remarkably choreographed act will always have a special place in our hearts.
A hologram performance by the King of Pop:
Our beloved American pop star, Michael Jackson ruled the world by his amazing music and killer dance moves. Fans were devastated to learn about the singer’s unexpected death. However, their dream to see their idol perform on stage came true in 2014. Enjoy the video below!
An animated hologram of MJ was presented during the Billboard Music Awards. The performance was on his single ‘Slave to the Rhythm’ from his posthumous album ‘Xscape’. Seeing him on stage again next to exceptional dancers surely made us feel nostalgic.
Remembering their brother, Zayn Malik:
Two months after Zayn bid farewell to his One Direction days, the band won the award for ‘best touring artist and top duo/group’ in 2015. ‘... There's one more person to share this with and that's our brother, Zayn’, said band member, Liam Payne. Fans were brought to tears when they watched the boys accept the award and mention Malik.
Enjoy the award night of 2020 and think about your top three memorable moments from the Billboard Music Awards!
