[Asher Angel in Joshua Kane Bespoke] How to modernise a three-piece suit: instead of layering on a matching blazer over the waistcoat and trousers, switch things up with a leather jacket. (Photo by Amy Sussman/FilmMagic)
[Scott Evans] When you're interviewing artistes on the red carpet, but look better than most of the male ones. And who says a velvet tux has to be stuffy and formal? (Photo by Bridget Bennett/AFP/Getty Images)
[Ruel] The young 'uns are on to something here. Australian singer-songwriter Ruel reinterprets the three-piece suit with louche tailoring and a plain white tee. (Photo by John Shearer/Getty Images
[DJ Mustard] "I want to feel protected on the red carpet. But you know, make it fashion." We're guessing that's how this outfit came about. (Photo by Frazer Harrison/Getty Images)
[Maluma in DSquared2] He might look like a colourful lizard, but Maluma's iridescent leather coordinates are quite a sight. (Photo by Kevin Mazur/Getty Images
[BTS] One of these does not look like the other. Is this a sign that a solo career is imminent? (Photo by John Shearer/Getty Images
[Kevin McHale in HUGO] Simple, understated but also impactful—key traits to take note of, especially if you're someone that's not into extravagant fashion. (Photo by Amy Sussman/FilmMagic)
[Brendon Urie in DSquared2] This needed a different pair of shoe, but that still wouldn't save Brendon Urie from looking like a member of the horn section in an orchestra. (Photo by John Shearer/Getty Images
[Justin Hartley in Ports V] Tailored coordinates are clearly a thing in the celeb-styling sphere. It makes sense for an event such as the Billboard Music Awards where there's no real need for a traditional suit or tux. And like Justin Hartley, a plain T-shirt is all you'd need to complete the look. (Photo by Kevin Mazur/Getty Images
[Bazzi] American musician Bazzi lost his 'Top New Artist' award to Juice Wrld (not a typo), but his outfit certainly deserves praise. (Photo by John Shearer/Getty Images)
[Khalid in Acne Studios and Prada] Khalid always delivers on the red carpet. This is probably one of his safer outfits to date, but smartly done to highlight his signature beard. (Photo by Frazer Harrison/Getty Images)
[CNCO] When you're a boyband and are into taking style cues from boybands of the '90s. (Photo by Steve Granitz/WireImage)
[Zedd] This could be an allusion to an album with DJ Snake that many have been speculating since last year. It's also snakeskin print and topped off with sequins—we'll leave that to your own conclusion. (Photo by Amy Sussman/FilmMagic)
[Jonas Brothers in Missoni] Nice suits but they also sort of look like pyjamas, and really shouldn't be worn with equally busy T-shirts. (Photo by Amy Sussman/FilmMagic)
[Diplo in vintage Nathan Turk] Yee-haw? (Photo by Frazer Harrison/Getty Images)
The Billboard Music Awards (BBMAs) are often referred to as the less prestigious sister to the Grammys. While the latter is usually somewhat more serious in tone, the former is more laid-back and fun. Yet, the BBMAs are a more accurate reflection of the state of music—what fans actually listen to, who they're obsessed with, and which artists are making an impact in the industry—as compared to the Grammys. Awards finalists for the BBMAs are determined by trackable factors such as album sales, airplay and social engagement, and not by a panel of industry insiders.
This year, the show was full of comebacks. Jonas Brothers performed a medley of old and new hits, Madonna took to the stage with Maluma to perform her new single, Ciara performed, Paula Abdul danced, and Mariah Carey sang a medley before receiving the 'Icon Award'.
On the red carpet, it was a mix bag. Some of the newer, up-and-coming musicians proved that there are newer style ideas to explore, aside from the tried and tested. Others stuck to suiting but with more modern interpretations. And then there's Diplo.
