On Sunday (May 15) MRC and NBC celebrated a big night with the 2022 Billboard Music Awards (BBMAs) broadcast live on NBC coast-to-coast from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas and live on Peacock.

Host Sean “Diddy” Combs was joined by today’s Billboard chart-topping artists for  performances, empowering moments, and historic wins. Eight on-air awards were given out, in addition to the earlier non-broadcast categories, and Olivia Rodrigo took home the most trophies of the night with seven wins – including Top New Artist, Top Female Artist, and Top Hot 100 Artist – making a notable splash for her first-ever BBMAs.

Morgan Wallen performed for the first time at an awards show since a clip of him using a racial epithet surfaces last year. The Voice season 6 alum performed his  hits “Don’t Think Jesus” and “Wasted on You.”

American Song Contest winner, K-Pop artist, AleXa who represented Oklahoma, performed her winning song “Wonderland” on the BBMA stage.

ICON Award recipient Mary J. Blige was honored by longtime friend and fellow ICON Award winner Janet Jackson.
