Justin Timberlake had a banner evening at the Billboard Music Awards on Sunday night as he took home seven trophies, including Top Artist, Top R&B Artist, Top Billboard 200 Artist and Top Billboard 200 Album for The 20/20 Experience. Imagine Dragons was right behind JT with five awards, including Top Hot 100 Artist, Top Duo/Group and Top Rock Artist. Robin Thicke, T.I. and Pharrell Williams also had strong showings with four trophies each.

The awards show, which was broadcast on ABC, boasted the television world premieres of a Michael Jackson hologram as well as a Miranda Lambert-Carrie Underwood duet of "Somethin' Bad." Meanwhile, Katy Perry beamed in remotely from London to perform her latest single, "Birthday," and she also received the award for Top Female Artist. Lorde, who was on hand to sing "Tennis Court" on the telecast, was named Top New Artist, and her song "Royals" was crowned Top Rock Song. Jennifer Lopez delivered a heartfelt speech in accepting the Icon Award, and she also took the stage for two performances. Eminem earned the award for Top Rap Artist.

After being named Top Streaming Artist, Miley Cyrus performed a rendition of the Beatles' "Lucy in the Sky With Diamonds" with the Flaming Lips' Wayne Coyne and Steven Drozd, which came in live from Manchester, England. Other performers included John Legend, who sang "All of Me;" and Iggy Azalea, who did "Fancy" with Charli XCX and a score of UNLV cheerleaders. She also assisted Ariana Grande on the song "Problem." Jason Derulo performed a medley of his hit "Talk Dirty" with 2 Chainz and "Wiggle" with Snoop Dogg. OneRepublic played the mega-hit "Counting Stars," and leader Ryan Tedder told Billboard that the song will now be retired from TV performances.
