This year’s BBMA awards were probably what you’d expect – a barrage of mainstream names you’re probably tired of hearing. But I think this year was even worse – even with (or especially) the EDM categories.
The fact that Nicki Minaj won Top Rap Artist blows my mind. The only offsetting factor was that Baauer actually won, twice, so congrats. But… so did David Guetta.. Top EDM Artist to be exact *facepalm*.
Those that came out on top do make at least some sense – Rihanna took home 4 awards, sweeping the R&B category, and Taylor Swift as much as people hate her, snagged 7 trophies including Top Artist and Top Album, crowning her this year’s biggest winner. Gotye x Kimbra became relevant once more coming being named winners in 4 categories as well with “Somebody That I Used To Know” that I guess is still getting played? Another one that made a ton of sense was Carly Rae Jepsen winning Top Digital Song with “Call Me Maybe.”
There were a lot of awards and a lot of *facepalm* moments… you can view all the winners after the jump. We also gathered a ton of performance footage as well. But first:
