As HipHopDX reported, the Billboard Music Awards took place last night (May 19) in Las Vegas, Nevada’s MGM Grand. The award show was dominated by Rihanna and Nicki Minaj. Minaj also took to the stage to perform with Lil Wayne. Their rendition of “High School” now has many people talking.
The performance featured Minaj twerking on Lil Wayne, who was seated at the center of the stage. Minaj, twerking and grinding in a body-tight black outfit, also became one of the evening’s biggest winners. She thanked Billboard for the awards soon after the show with a tweet.
Didn’t know I won 3 awards. Thank u all for the support. Thanks Billboard.
