Trae Tha Truth was honoured with the Change Maker Award, and Drake received the Artist of the Decade Award.

“I’m really self-conscious about my music,” the latter admitted when he accepted the award, his 3-year-old son, Adonis, joining him on the stage. He added, “I’ve spent an incalculable amount of hours trying to analyze all the things I did wrong, but tonight for once I’m sure as hell we did something right.”

To commemorate the 20th anniversary of her debut studio album, Songs in A Minor, which was released in June 2001, Alicia Keys gave a special performance, serving up a medley of some of her biggest hits, including “Fallin.’” In a video introduction, Michelle Obama praised her, saying, “This young singer was taking us to church and to the symphony and to a candlelit dinner and couples therapy and everywhere else, all in a little more than three minutes. I knew right there that wouldn’t be the last we hear from Alicia Keys.”

Hosted by Nick Jonas, the BBMAs was broadcast live from the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles and aired on NBC.

A number of awards were given out earlier on Sunday on the Billboard Music Awards Instagram Live in a ceremony hosted by Matthew Hoffman. The Weeknd racked up seven trophies there, including for Top Male Artist, Top Radio Songs Artist, Top R&B Artist, and Top Radio Song. Meanwhile, Pop Smoke won four awards, including Top New Artist, Top Rap Artist, and Top Rap Album.

Country star Morgan Wallen, a finalist in six categories due to airplay, won Top Country Album, Top Country Artist, and Top Country Male Artist, but his use of a racial slur earlier this year cost him an appearance at the show. First-time finalist Gabby Barrett netted two wins, for Top Country Song and Top Collaboration, a category voted on by fans.

The awards celebrate artists who achieved considerable success on the Billboard charts from 21 March 2020, through 3 April 2021. BBMAs finalists and winners “are based on key fan interactions with music, including album and digital song sales, streaming, radio airplay, and social engagement, tracked by Billboard and its data partners, including MRC Data,” the publication said in a news release.
