The Billboard Music Awards were handed out Sunday night.

More from The Hollywood Reporter

Dan + Shay won the award for top country duo/group, while ILLENIUM won top dance/electronic album for Fallen Embers.

Janet Jackson presented Mary J. Blige with the Billboard Icon Award. (See red carpet photos from the show here.)

Among the night’s performers were Morgan Wallen, marking his first performance at a major awards show since he was caught on camera using a racial slur, and Travis Scott, who has been keeping a low profile since 10 people died at his Astroworld Festival in Houston last year. Combs had said he insisted that Scott perform at the show, noting in a video posted on social media: “I’m uncancelling the canceled.” Scott and Wallen, who also went on to win the award for top male country artist, addressed either incident during their time onstage.

Also taking the stage were Becky G, Burna Boy, Dan + Shay, Ed Sheehan, Elle King & Miranda Lambert, Florence + The Machine, Latto, Machine Gun Kelly, Maxwell, Megan Thee Stallion, Rauw Alejandro and Silk Sonic.

Most of the categories were presented before the broadcast. Among those early winners, Drake was named top artist, while Olivia Rodrigo was named best new artist.

Drake won a total of five early awards, including top male artist and top rap album for Certified Lover Boy, while Rodrigo’s seven wins also included top Hot 100 artist, top streaming songs artist and top Billboard 200 album for SOUR.

Taylor Swift has four wins so far, including top Billboard 200 artist, while BTS has three wins, including top duo/group.

Heading into the show, Weeknd led the finalists for the 2022 BBMAs, with a total of 17 nominations.

The awards were announced in a live broadcast on NBC from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas. It also streamed live on Peacock. The show was hosted by Sean “Diddy” Combs.

Awards were handed out in 62 categories spanning a variety of genres, including five categories that are new to this year’s show: top Billboard global 200 artist, top Billboard global excl. U.S. artist, top Billboard global 200 song, top Billboard global excl. U.S. song and top viral song.

This year’s BBMAs are based on the chart period of April 10, 2021, through March 26, 2022. Finalists and winners are based on key fan interactions with music, including album and digital song sales, streaming, radio airplay and social engagement, tracked by Billboard and its data partners, including Luminate.

The Billboard Music Awards ceremony is produced by MRC Live & Alternative, a division of MRC, which is a co-owner of The Hollywood Reporter through a joint venture with Penske Media titled PMRC. Robert Deaton and Combs are the executive producer of the BBMAs
