Sunday's Billboard Music Awards were all about Cher, who accepted the night's Icon Award with a pair of powerful performances that proved the 71-year-old diva's still the best in the game. On Sunday evening, the Canadian star wore at the stage a $3 mln worth of jewellery to sing her song in Las Vegas. Coming in some way behind the rapper, but still with a healthy haul - Beyonce and Twenty One Pilots won five awards each, while the Chainsmokers, back again this year, won four.

Starting with actress Vanessa Hudgens, the More Life artist sang admiration for her attractive ensemble and presence at the award show.

Dion, who was Billboard's Icon past year, lost her husband and former manager Rene Angelil to cancer in 2016.

"Someone wise once told me life is like toilet paper", he said. I think he's right, but James Horner - who, unfortunately, passed away - I guess convinced him without telling him who was singing, he said, 'Please let me play you that song.' I did a demo and I guess he was convinced.

In return they are hoping for a public display of commitment from Trump to Article 5 , the alliance's one-for-all collective defence pledge.


"So, tonight, I want to say, Vanessa Hudgens you look incredible tonight", he said, much to the dismay of the "Anaconda" songstress.

Some might think it takes more than luck to have a number one hit on a Billboard chart in each of the last six decades and to become an Oscar-winning actress.
