This Sunday, May 15, the 2022 Billboard Music Awards took place at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas (Nevada), broadcast on NBC and Peacock, 3 years after the last ceremony due to the Coronavirus pandemic. For this edition, it was Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs who presented the show, which he also produced, while the one whose career he helped launch, Mary J. Blige, was honored with the Icon Award. Between the parade of stars on the red carpet, and the show in the auditorium of the MGM Grand hotel and casino, many US personalities were present and took part in the event. Among them, we found on the red carpet, Diddy and Mary J. Blige, as well as Travis Scott, Doja Cat, Pusha T, Jack Harlow, Dj Khaled, Maxwell, Givēon, Becky G, Burna Boy, Ty Dolla $ign, Latto , Janet Jackson, French Montana, Teyana Taylor, Chloé Bailey, the Brazilian Anitta… Kylie Jenner and her daughter Stormi (4 years old) were also present to accompany Travis who, as Diddy had announced, made his comeback in public (apart from a few appearances here and there) from the drama of the Astroworld Festival, to perform 2 titles: Mafia and Lost Forever. Megan The Stallion (with Plan B and Sweetest Pie), Machine Gun Kelly, Bryson Tiller (with Diddy and Jack Harlow) or even Latto also performed on stage… Maxwell paid homage to Michael Jackson and the album Thrillerwhich celebrates its 40th anniversary, by taking over Lady in my Life.
