What did you think of the Billboard Music Awards?

Top Performer of the night for me was the Queen Bey! Beyonce KILLED her performance and showed us exactly why she more than deserved that Millenium Award!
Her body looked amazing (I promise not to use the word "amazing" again in this blogpost, thank you very much Justin Bieber -___-), her voice was stronger than ever and that digital high-tech performance was on point! LOVED IT! LOVED IT! LOVED IT! (See her performance in the vid below)

Some of the other highlights for me:

Cee Lo wowed me with his performance and now I want to be hoisted into the air with a grand piano and spun around....NOT!!!! I'll leave that to Cee-Lo! Thumbs up!

Cee Lo (on left) with his award, and (on right) being spun around mid-air with his piano

Congrats to Rihanna on her awards...and she looked stunning in her white tuxedo!
Rihanna and Jay Z

One of my FAVE groups, Lady Antebellum, accepting their award

Nicki Minaj's performance was a bit lack lustre for me...I expected HOTNESS from her
...but she gets luv anyway since she's a fellow Trini

Kesha did a great job with her performance.

Babyface is the Jay Z for Baby Boomers!

On Mothers' Day, my cousins and I headed to the Tank/Babyface concert. We were stuck in RIDICULOUS traffic so by the time we made it there, we missed Tank's performance. All my tweets to attack him if he ripped off his shirt became empty promises (but don't worry Tank, I MUST make it to one of your concerts've been warned! lol)

My cousins and I at the concert

Anyway, the shocker for me was Babyface! I know he's a phenomenal songwriter and very established in the music business, (working with Toni Braxton, Boyz II Men and soooooo many more top artists)...what I DIDN'T know was that his fans are outta control!! He's like the Jay Z for baby boomers!

Mr "Whip Appeal" himself graces the stage

This lady (with the blue ponytail) ran up to the front and couldn't contain herself.
She sang every song and punctuated every beat with more passion than Babyface himself!

These two seemed to be in competition for "Who caught the best Holy Ghost?"
Pink top won -__-

Babyface did a medley of hits
and he looks and sounds great!

This was my view of the stage at one point!
This woman refused to sit when security asked her to so the people behind her could see...
...this is!

Here is "blue ponytail" again...
you cannot see her date but most likely she is telling him to shut the hell up so she could listen to her Babyface

"Blue Ponytail" again grooving like she is the only one in the theater.
If ONE person enjoyed the show, it's her! lol

Is he related to Babyface? anyone know?

Babyface hugging a fan one row behind us... was mayhem when he came through the audience!

It was a very entertaining show...but if you think Justin Bieber "stans" are crazy, you haven't been to a Babyface concert! lol
