Last night, the 2015 Billboard Music Awards occurred live from Las Vegas, and it featured a variety of outstanding, much-talked-about performances, including Kanye West’s controversially censored one of “All Day” and “Black Skinhead.” Unlike other award shows, the winners are based purely on chart performance rather than on a variety of factors, meaning that anybody can find out who they are with some online research. Sam Smith and Taylor Swift both had 13 nominations each, but it was the latter that took home the Top Artist, Top Billboard 200 Album, Top Female Artist, and Billboard Chart Achievement awards.
