2013-billboard-awards-photos-performances-hosted-by-tracy-morgan232The opening of the Billboard Music Awards included Tracy Morgan and his birth father – Wayne Newton. The joke was used to introduce him as the host for the Billboard Music Awards last night. Wayne Newton was there and he was in on the joke too! LOL, the big homie Tracy Morgan is HILLARIOUS!

Tracy Morgan introduced his “birth daddy” to the audience that got a round of laughs from the audience and the world watching the Billboard Awards. Wayne Newton looked a little like Billy Crystal just a little puffier and sporting a few more wrinkles. Tracy even had jokes for Las Vegas,

“even vampires get tired at Vegas.”



At one point during the award show, Tracy rocked a sequined jacket, saying it was a tribute to Michael Jackson.  He made jokes about the New York City public school was so tough, that they didn’t get recess, but were “released on their own recognizance.”


Nicki Minaj had an amazing night at the Billboard Music Awards. Nicki walked away  with three awards including the Top Rap Artist Award beating out her all male competition. Go head home girl!!!! 

Nicki also came away with awards in the categories of Top Streaming Artist and Top Rap Album for “Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded.”


Macklemore & Ryan Lewis also had a big night. Not only did the rapper-producer duo take the stage as performers, but their hit song “Thrift Shop” won the award for Top Rap Song. Meanwhile, Rihanna took home four awards, including Top R&B Artist and Top R&B Album. Other big winners Sunday night were Taylor Swift, One Direction, and Justin Bieber.


The Billboard Awards had some amazing performances including Miami-born rapper Pitbull not only teamed up with Christina Aguilera to perform their track “Feel This Moment,” but he took the stage a second time to perform with Jennifer Lopez. Nicki Minaj followed up her wins with a steamy performance of “High School” with Lil Wayne.


Miguel, Prince, Taylor Swift, Chris Brown and Justin Bieber were also among the artists who performed at the awards ceremony.

The biggest moment of the evening would have to be when”Q.U.E.E.N.” singers Erykah Badu and Janelle Monae introduced Prince as the Most Talented Icon at the 2013 Billboard Music Awards. That was so awesome! We love MUSICIANS!!!!
