Post Malone was the big winner at the 2020 Billboard Music Awards, taking home nine prizes including top artist. Eight of his trophies were delivered in a cart by host Kelly Clarkson, who pushed them towards him COVID-style. Due to the delay, the show mostly celebrated hits from last year, with Lil Nas X taking home four prizes for his hit Old Town Road. Billie Eilish picked up three awards as did the Jonas Brothers. Harry Styles won a fan-voted award as did BTS all thanks to the ARMY. There were some fantastic performances as well coming from artists like Posty, Sia, BTS, Alicia Keys, Demi Lovato and more.
Speaking of Demi, she performed her politically-driven new song Commander in Chief. She used her platform to amplify what she felt was an important and urgent message. Some folks weren’t happy with it, don’t like the song and well she simply doesn’t care what you think. In fact, she said the difference between me and the type of artist you WANT and EXPECT me to be, but I’m sorry honey that will never BE me I literally don’t care if this ruins my career.
