Post Malone was the big winner at the 2020 Billboard Music Awards, which were presented Wednesday (Oct. 14). He won nine awards, including artist of the year.
Khalid was the year’s second-biggest winner, with five awards, followed by Lil Nas X and Billy Ray Cyrus, who won four awards each on the strength of their record-setting collab “Old Town Road (Remix).”
This year’s show was originally scheduled for April 29 but was delayed because of the COVID-19 pandemic. Kelly Clarkson hosted the show for the third year in a row.
Billie Eilish: The teen phenom’s When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go? won top Billboard 200 album, nearly nine months after it won the Grammy for album of the year. It’s the fourth album in the past 10 years to receive both of these awards, following Adele’s 21 and 25 and Taylor Swift’s 1989. Eilish also won top female artist, beating last year’s winner, Ariana Grande, and three-time category champ Swift. Eilish also took top new artist. She’s the first female artist to win in this category since Lorde in 2014.
