BILLBOARD MUSIC AWARD WINNERS ANNOUNCED

The annual Billboard awards went down overnight, with Adele the big winner as she took out a crazy 12 awards.

The British songstress cleaned up at the American awards, heading home with a swag of accolades including Top Female Artist, Top Hot 100 Artist, Top Pop Album and Top Alternative Song. Other big winners included LMFAO (6 awards), Coldplay (4), Lil Wayne (4) and Lady Gaga (2).

These are awards given by Billboard, the body that looks after the charts in America, so you can understand the commercial focus on these gongs; but in a ceremony where LMFAO win “best group,” Adele and Coldplay are classed as “alternative,” and Chris Brown is honoured in any way at all, you might have to question its authenticity and standards. However, a touching tribute to Whitney Houston and a lifetime achievement award for Stevie Wonder helped to give the ceremony a bit of gravitas.

Check out all the winners below, as well as a gallery of pics above.
