Canadian connection: Drake meets Celine Dion at Billboards

Posted May 24, 2017

Drake accepts the award for top male artist at the Billboard Music Awards at the T-Mobile Arena on Sunday, May 21, 2017, in Las Vegas.

Last night's Billboard Music Awards proved a momentous occasion: Drake broke the record for most decorated musician in the show's history in one night, with 13 wins.

Drake, with trophies in his arms and at his feet, is the record-holder now, surpassing Adele's record past year at the Billboard Music Awards.

But band member Rap Monster, who spoke on behalf of BTS, spoke in English for the majority of his speech, saying: " We still cannot believe that we're standing here on this stage at the Billboard Music Awards".

The set was Cher's first awards show performance in 15 years.

She was later presented with the Icon Award, a prestigious award given to influential singers. He also made it a point to praise her and said, "I want to say, Nicki Minaj - I'm so glad we found our way back because I love you and I could never ever ever see it any other way".

"I want to say that, Vanessa Hudgens, you look incredible tonight", he said.

As always, Cher was an inspiration and an icon at the Billboard Music Awards on Sunday night. Then the thirst took over, and Drake said that he's "a year away from a Céline tat".

Under a glittering chandelier and dressed in a Met-worthy white gown, Dion wowed the audience with her performance and earned one of the biggest cheers of the night.

But the singer, who is engaged to Liam Hemsworth, couldn't hide her emotion by the end when her eyes teared up.
