2021 Billboard Music Awards: Complete List of Winners

The Weeknd’s “Blinding Lights” takes home the award for Top Hot 100 Song

The 2021 Billboard Music Awards was a two-night event this year, with music superstars such as The Weeknd and Machine Gun Kelly going home as winners for Top Artist and Best Rock Artist, respectively.

Celebrating music’s biggest chart-toppers, Nick Jonas hosted the BBMAs live from the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles on Sunday night, a day after Matthew Hoffman announced the first group of winners for a non-televised ceremony. Pop Smoke, who received record-breaking posthumous recognition as a finalist in 10 categories, dominated four of those categories, while Gabby Barrett, a first-time finalist claimed two awards.

The Weeknd, who went into Sunday’s show having already collected seven trophies, took home the Top Hot 100 song for his ’80s-inspired anthem “Blinding Lights.”

ICON Award recipient P!NK delivered a show-stopping performance of “Cover Me in Sunshine” with her daughter Willow Sage Hart, and Drake was named Artist of the Decade. In addition, Houston-based rapper Trae Tha Truth received the second annual Change Maker Award for his dedication to “fighting for, and delivering, social and medical equity in his community.”

Among the other performers Sunday were JR, Alicia Keys, Bad Bunny, BTS, DJ Khaled featuring H.E.R. and Migos, Doja Cat & SZA, Duran Duran, Glass Animals, Jonas Brothers with Marshmello, Karol G, The Weeknd and Twenty One Pilots.
