Top 5 moments of 2013 Billboard Music Awards
When you pick Tracy Morgan to host your awards show you’re pretty much guaranteed a ridiculous show, and boy did the Billboard Awards deliver.
Here are our picks for the top moments of the 2013 Billboard Music Awards:
1. Justin Bieber performed twice, but it was the audience’s reaction to his ‘milestone’ award that lands him on the ‘top moments’ list. After being named the winner, the crowd began booing Bieber. The Biebs stood there onstage in his sunglasses and leather top for a moment before lecturing the audience: “I’m 19 years old; I think I’m doing a pretty good job. And basically from my heart I really just want to say it should really be about the music, it should be about the craft that I’m making. This is not a gimmick,” he said. “I’m an artist and I should be taken seriously and all this other bull should not be spoken.”
At least he took off his sunglasses to thank ‘Jesus Christ’:
2. Best backstage moment belongs to our girl Taylor Swift. Swift, who is supposedly best friends with Bieber ex-Selena Gomez, catches the former couple in a brief intimate moment and her reaction tells it all. Watch at 1:00 minute in:
3. And then J Lo wore this…
4. The most talked about moment of the awards show came in the middle of Miguel’s performance. While singing his hit song “Adorn,” the singer tried to jump over the audience but didn’t quite make it:
Miguel apparently met with the fan immediately after the performance and tweeted:
got caught up in the moment, thank goodness Khyati is okay

So apparently she lived to tell the tale.
5. But the ultimate moment? That would be Prince’s performance because Prince. Always. Wins.
