The 2016 Billboard Music Awards was all about The Weeknd, who grabbed eight trophies, including Top Hot 100 Artist, Top R&B Artist, Top R&B Song for "The Hills," and Top R&B Album for Beauty Behind the Madness. Adele took home five awards, including Top Female Artist, Top 200 Album for 25, and the big one, Top Artist.
The Weeknd dedicated his Top 100 Artist award to Prince, who died suddenly last month. In The Weeknd's acceptance speech, he noted that the legendary artist was an inspiration to him.
