As they say in show business — the show must go on. After being postponed in March for six months, the 2020 Billboard Music Awards finally took place on Wednesday, October 14, in an empty Dolby Theatre in Hollywood, Calif.

Kelly Clarkson hosted the awards show for the third year in a row. The American Idol alum opened the show with a cover of “Higher Love” — a Steve Winwood song, which was famously covered by Whitney Houston. The singer was joined by Sheila E. and Pentatonix.

In February, she said: “I’m thrilled to be back with my Billboard family … I love being part of an event that celebrates our greatest artists and entertains our fans. This a night of music that you won’t want to miss!”

Post Malone was the overall winner of the night. The rapper took home nine awards, including the top artist prize. This year he was nominated for 16 awards, which is one less than his 2019 record of 17 Billboard nominations.

Behind Malone was Lil Nas X, who was nominated 13 times. Billie Eilish and Khalid were tied with 12 nominations. Then, Lizzo followed with 11 to her name, while Kanye West scored nine. It was Lizzo and Lil Nas X’s first time being up for the awards. The Jonas Brothers and Harry Styles were also nominated for the first time.
