Billboard Music Awards 2021 Full Winners List – The Hollywood Reporter

I Prefer To Listen!! Enjoy

DJ Khaled ft. H.E.R. and Migos kicked off the 2021 Billboard Music Awards on an outdoor stage in downtown Los Angeles on Sunday night with scores of fans in attendance.

The high-energy performance kicked off what BBMA host Nick Jonas told The Hollywood Reporter last week would be an in-person ceremony following all pandemic safety protocols, with about 500-600 attendees — which, it should be noted, is seemingly one of the largest audiences for a Hollywood awards show amid the pandemic thus far that features regular folks (the Golden Globes audience was filled with healthcare workers, while the Grammys and Oscars kept invitations to industry folks).

Jonas came out on the outdoor stage Sunday night at L.A. Live and noted the past year has been  “an insane rollercoaster ride” but reiterated his enthusiasm for being back in front of a live audience — all of whom appeared to be wearing masks. “We are live and there is a crowd to see our performance,” he said, adding: “We are making sure to follow all the proper public health and safety protocols.” He later noted, “I am having a very good time. It’s good to hear this crowd. I can’t get enough. It’s a beautiful, beautiful thing. I haven’t left my house in almost a  year and a half, and now we have this wonderful crowd. I love it.”

In terms of winners, The Weeknd leads the winners of the 2021 Billboard Music Awards so far. He took home seven awards in several categories that were announced off-air prior to Sunday’s live telecast, which airs at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT on NBC. The singer, who also will perform during the broadcast, was named top male artist, top radio songs artist, top R&B artist and top R&B male artist. In addition, After Hours was named top R&B album, while his single “Blinding Lights” won for top radio song and top R&B song.

The Weeknd also won the first award handed out on the live telecast, for top Hot 100 artist. Appearing in a black suit and coat, he joked, “Thank God I don’t have to wear that red suit anymore,” a reference to the outfit worn by a “character” he appeared as for several months after dropping his album After Hours in various videos, late-night appearances, awards-show performances at performing at the Super Bowl halftime show. The continuing storyline followed a man on a night gone wrong, then on a violent streak, later with bandages showing first his injuries then later signaling a message about plastic surgery in Hollywood (in one video, he sings on stage after obvious facial surgery).

Bad Bunny was named top Latin artist during the live ceremony, and delivered his speech entirely in Spanish. He also won three awards in the off-air categories: top Latin male artist, top Latin song and top Latin album, a category in which he set a record for becoming the first Latin artist to land three nods in the same category.

Gabby Barrett was named top country female artist and teared up during her acceptance speech, noting how meaningful the award was to her.

Meanwhile, other off-air winners included Pop Smoke won four off-air awards, including top new artist, top rap artist, top rap male artist and top rap album for his posthumously released debut, Shoot for the Stars, Aim for the Moon.

Morgan Wallen won three awards, for top country album, top country artist and tope country male artists. In February, a video surfaced of Wallen using the N-word. He apologized for using “an unacceptable and inappropriate racial slur” after TMZ posted the video. In a statement Sunday, producer Dick Clark Productions reiterated past comments emphasizing that the BBMA finalists and winners are “determined by performance on the Billboard charts and are not chosen by a voting committee or membership organization. BBMA finalists and winners are based on key fan interactions with music (including album and digital song sales, streaming, radio airplay, social engagement), tracked by Billboard and its data partners, including MRC Data.”

They also repeated that “his recent conduct does not align with our core values, [and therefore] we will not be including him on the show in any capacity (performing, presenting, accepting). It is heartening and encouraging to hear that Morgan is taking steps in his anti-racist journey and starting to do some meaningful work. We plan to evaluate his progress and will consider his participation in future shows.” (Dick Clark Productions is a division of MRC, which is a co-owner of The Hollywood Reporter through a joint venture with Penske Media titled P-MRC.)

BTS also has three awards so far, including top duo/group, top song sales artist and top social artist (a fan-voted award).

Other early winners included Taylor Swift for top female artist and top Billboard 200 artist, Kanye West for top gospel artist and top gospel song, Lady Gaga as top dance/electronic artist and top dance/electronic album, Carrie Underwood for top Christian album, Drake for top streaming sales artist, and Megan Theee Stallion for top rap female artist.

Nick Jonas is hosting the ceremony from the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles, where Pink will perform and receive the ICON Award, Drake will receive the Artist of the Decade Award, and Trae Tha Truth will receive the Change Maker Award.

Jonas also will the stage with his brothers, Joe and Kevin Jonas — aka the Jonas Brothers — along with Marshmello, who released a single together, “Leave Before You Love Me,” on Thursday.

Other performers are scheduled to include AJR, Alicia Keys, Bad Bunny, BTS, DJ Khaled ft. H.E.R. and Migos, Duran Duran, Glass Animals, Jimmy Jam & Terry Lewis with Sounds of Blackness featuring Ann Nesby, Karol G, The Weeknd and Twenty One Pilots.

Winners will be unveiled in a total of 51 categories spanning multiple genres.
