The 2020 Billboard Music Awards finally aired on Wednesday after a six month delay, with three-time host Kelly Clarkson returning to preside over NBC’s semi-virtual ceremony.

Post Malone was the night’s big winner, taking home nine awards for his album “Hollywood’s Bleeding,” including Top Artist and Top Male Artist.

Other winners included Billie Eilish, for Top Female Artist; Lizzo, for Top Song Sales Artist; Luke Combs, for Top Country Artist; and K-Pop sensation BTS, for the fan-voted Top Social Artist award. Rapper Killer Mike was awarded the first ever Change Maker award for his social activism, while country star Garth Brooks was honored with the 2020 Billboard Icon Award.

Performers for the show included host Kelly Clarkson (joined by Pentatonix and Sheila E. for the opening number), Alicia Keys, Bad Bunny, Brandy feat. Ty Dolla $ign, BTS, Doja Cat, En Vogue, John Legend and Demi Lovato.

The 2020 Billboard Music Awards were originally scheduled to take place in April, with Clarkson hosting a traditional live show from Las Vegas. However, the ceremony was forced to reschedule due to the coronavirus pandemic, airing instead from the Dolby Theater in Los Angeles.
