An absent Adele scooped 12 gongs at the Billboard Music Awards last night

Bookmark and Share

We can imagine this award malarkey is getting pretty old of Adele, not to mention the effort of juggling so many for picture ops, so we're not too surprised she didn't attend the Billboard Awards last night.

But don't worry because plenty of other big name pop acts attended and won awards including Taylor Swift who received Woman of the Year, Katy Perry who got the Spotlight award and Justin Bieber who was awarded the Top Social Artist.

On accepting his award Justin said: 'First of all I just want to say how much of a blessing it's been the past three or for years growing up in front of everybody,

'I just want to thank all my fans because, you know, the internet is where I got my start and all my fans have helped me get to this position.'

Aww that's rather humble and lovely isn't it? Katy Perry, who attended the awards with her 91-year-old grandma, was equally as charming in her acceptance speech: 'This is cool! They told me the only other person who's received this award is Michael Jackson, so I feel incredibly honoured to be in that same category - although I don't compare at all.

'These songs have been kind of like the diary of the last few years for me,'

Whitney Houston's daughter Bobbi Kristina accepted the Millennium award on behalf of her mother, saying: 'I just really want to say thank you to everyone who supported us through it all. Not just from when it was good, but when it was bad too.

'Thank you so much for showing that much love, because she deserved it. She did. 'I'm just blessed to have been in such an incredible woman's life.

'There will never be another one ever, and I thank you, all of you – the fans, everyone. Thank you so much.'
