Billboard Music Awards 2022 Winners: BTS, The Weeknd, Doja Cat, Drake Take Home Top Honours

The Billboard Music Awards 2022 saw The Weeknd and Doja Cat walking away with the highest number of wins

One of the most prestigious music awards, the Billboard Music Awards 2022, took place in Las Vegas, United States, recently. Sean “Diddy” Combs hosted the 29th edition of the show at the MGM Grand Garden Arena. This year saw some artists create history while there were some shocking snubs as well. Among the artists nominated were The Weeknd, Adele, Doja Cat, BTS, Dua Lipa, Olivia Rodrigo, Drake and Taylor Swift.

 

The 2022 awards saw The Weeknd and Doja Cat walking away with the highest number of wins. The Weeknd got nods in 17 categories. His duet with Ariana Grande, “Save Your Tears (Remix)” scored six nominations. Doja Cat became the top female finalist with 14 nods. Drake won the Top Artist Award and received 11 nominations, while Olivia Rodrigo bagged six awards.

 

BTS took home a number of awards too and even set a record in the process. The Korean boy band including members RM, Jin, Jimin, V, Suga, J-Hope, and Jungkook, skipped the event to focus on their upcoming album, but won awards for Top Duo/Group, Top Song Sales Artist and Top Selling Song for “Butter”. With a total of 12 awards, BTS is now the group with the most wins in the Billboard Music Awards’ history. 

 

Other highlights of the day included Machine Gun Kelly’s performance of “Twin Flame” from his latest album Mainstream Sellout. During his stint on the stage, he said, referring to Megan Fox, “I wrote this song for my wife”. He also added that he is dedicating a part of the song to his ‘unborn child.’ Interestingly, neither of the two has made any statement about marriage or pregnancy until now.
