RECAP: The 2011 Billboard Music Awards

The 2011 Billboard Music Awards were last night, and we saw all the chart toppers in attendance and on stage!

But what better way to kick off a show and get people talking than with a controversial song/collaboration, and a girl on girl kiss featuring Miss Britney Spears?

Rihanna kicked off the show as Britney joined her towards the end for a little S&M!

It wasn’t the only time we saw BritBrit, though! Not only was she in the audience with boyfriend Jason Trawick, she also joined Nicki Minaj for a “Til the World Ends” Remix!

Other people who took the stage included Mary J Blige, Lil Wayne, Taio Cruz, Beyonce, Lady Antebellum, the Black Eyed Peas, Ke$ha, Pibull, Ne-Yo, and some others, but another performance that has everyone talking is Cee-Lo Green with his flying, floating, and flipping piano!
