Post Malone, Khalid and calls to vote lead 2020 Billboard Music Awards

American singer Post Malone turned out a big victor with nine awards at the 2020 Billboard Music Awards Wednesday night.

Kelly Clarkson hosted the event for the third consecutive year and kicked off the night with a performance of her own, singing Whitney Houston's "Higher Love" with Pentatonix and Sheila E.

Luke Combs, who The New York Times calls, "the most promising and influential new country star of the last five years", won three awards last night at the 2020 Billboard Music Awards: Top Country Artist, Top Country Male Artist and Top Country Album for his platinum-certified, global #1 record, What You See Is What You Get.

But, Rogozin, whose speech by video link was translated live, left open the chance of some future collaborative projects. In addition, China, another space power, is among the countries that do not have a signature in the agreements.

As expected, BTS took home the Top Social Artist award at the Billboard Music Awards making it their fourth consecutive win. "When people try to suppress something, it's because they're afraid of your power", said Lizzo. "There's power in your voice". Nonetheless, with the help of Pentatonix and percussionist Sheila E., she kicked off the show with a powerhouse performance of Whitney Houston's "Higher Love". She also gained the top new artist and top female artist. The K-Pop band was nominated for the Top Social Artist and Top Duo / Group categories, taking home awards.

John Legend performed his ballad "Never Break" and dedicated it to his wife, Chrissy Teigen, who recently suffered a pregnancy loss.

The full list of 2020 BBMAs Top Artist nominees included Billie Eilish, Jonas Brothers, Khalid, Post Malone and Taylor Swift. Not only did she rock a dress with the word "VOTE" written all over it, she shared a powerful and inspirational message urging fans to stay true to who they are and "refuse to be suppressed".
