Billboard Awards 2015

Hey Y’all!!

So I know I’m a little bit late but let’s talk about the Billboard Awards 2015!

Rapper Ludacris and model Chrissy Teigan did an awesome job with hosting and being themselves.

The fashion was something to look at especially Chrissy Teigan, rocking three different outfits; a Balmain black and gold stripe jump suit she wore on the red carpet,  a red tube top jump suit she wore while hosting the awards with rapper/actor Ludacris, along with with a white low cut dress and a white sweater low cut dress. Mariah Carey rocked a black To Ford dress, Jennifer Lopez wore a gorgeous Charbel Zoe couture silver and brown see through dress. And that Taylor Swift got sexy on us and wore a Balmain white jump suit that was cut out under the boobs. Balmain was clearly a hot commodity because Kendall Jenner wore the brand as well as her younger sistr Kylie Jenner. Andddd lastly that Iggy Azalea wore a powder blue and nude color crop top and skirt that I wasn’t a fan of, especially with her pink tipped ends on her hair but to each is own.

Moving along, there were some intense categories with some great nominees in them and some were just obvious on who should win.

Taylor Swift won EIGHT awards, she better get it. She won: top artist, Billboard Chart Achievement Award, Top Female Artist, Top Billboard Artist 200, Top Billboard 200 Album for her 1989 album, Top Hot 100 Artist, Top Digital Song Artist, and Top Streaming Video for “Shake It Off”. She also premiered her action filled music video ‘Bad Blood.”

Sam Smith took home the top male artist award, top new artist and top radio song artist award. Iggy Azalea took home the top rap song for “Fancy” (bi**h wheet), Top Streaming Artist, and Top Rap Artist (what in a Sam Hell). So clearly I have an issue with that, Honestly I think Nicki Minaj should have won for Ananconda. She is an actually rap artist, not because she is a black woman but because lyrically she spits the real.Yes Iggy is a rapper I guess but she doesn’t speak the real, it’s all mumbo jumbo, TO ME PERSONALLY. I think she won because majority rules, more white people support Iggy than Nicki and of course majority of them are in charge of the awards. As far as top rap artist,  J. Cole or Drake should have won, J.Cole lyrically speaks greatness, Drake lyrically speaks his words with emotion which catches fans attention but again majority rules and I think that the Billboard Awards wanted a white artist to win. Last year Eminem won Top Rap Artist in 2014 In a category with Drake and the GREAT Jay-Z. No shade towards Eminem at all because he is a good artist. He also won top Top Rap Album for The Marshall Mathers, and Macklemore &Ryan Lewis featuring Ray Dalton won top Rap song in 2014 for “Can’t Hold Us. No shade to these artists but I think it’s a visual game. Maybe these artists won based off numbers and rating but to me it seems a little off.

Moving along, the magical John Legend won three awards, which was well-deserved. Another great recognition was J.Cole winning Top Rap Album.

Performance wise,  Chris Brown performed a pop-ish song in a red Michael Jackson type suit, with Pitbull in a new song titled Fun. Wiz Khalifa hit the stage with Charlie Puth and Lindsey Stirling in the heart-felt song “See You Again” dedicated to actor Paul Walker, who died in a car crash in November 2013. Britney Spears made a come back song with Iggy Izalea in a song called Pretty Girls. Nick Jonas performed one of my favorites “jealous” Kanye West performed “All Day” with a lot of fire, literally. His sister in laws Kendall & Kylie Jenner were booed when presenting his performance…was the crowd hating or in the right?? Hmmm, and of course the Empire crew Jussie Smollett & Bryshere Gray had to make an appearance, performing “You’re So Beautiful” and “Conquerer” with Estelle. There were many more performances but I just had to speak on those.
