We go inside the 2017 Billboard Music Awards and much more in today’s Dirty Laundry.

Ludacris and Vanessa Hudgins hosted the 2017 Billboard Music Awards and Drake was the big winner with 13 awards, breaking Adele’s record for the most awards in a year. His performance in the middle of the Bellagio fountains was great but it wasn’t the first time someone did that… Britney Spears performed “I’m A Slave 4 U” back in 2001.

Beyonce had five wins, Twenty One Pilots was awarded four trophies, and The Chainsmokers earned three.  Miley Cyrus cried at the end of her “Malibu” performance, Cher,71, amazed everyone especially when she wore the same outfit for “If I Could Turn Back Time” that she did about 30 years ago… Celine Dion had people in tears with her “My Heart Will Go On” performance but twitter had some things to say about her dress… they said it looked like the iceberg that sunk the Titanic!
