FULL LIST: Winners, Billboard Music Awards 2015
See who won big at this year's awards

MANILA, Philippines – It was Taylor Swift’s night after winning 8 awards including the Billboard Chart Achievement Award voted by fans at the 2015 Billboard Music Awards held at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Sunday May 17 (May 18 in Manila).

The Billboard Music Awards, run by the music trade magazine, recognize chart performance unlike the more prestigious Grammys which are based on voting within the industry.

Sam Smith, the British soul singer who was the big winner at the latest Grammys,  missed the Billboard awards as he underwent surgery Thursday to repair a vocal cord problem.

Smith, who has canceled weeks of shows, accepted a Billboard award for top male artist through a video message. He silently held handwritten signs that included: “Can’t wait to get this surgery out of the way so I can sing my ass of for you again.”

The British boy band One Direction won for best duo or group less than two months after Zayn Malik parted ways.

“There’s one more person to share this with, and that’s our brother Zayn,” Liam Payne said as he took the stage with his three fellow remaining bandmates.

The gracious display came after open acrimony between Malik and Louis Tomlinson, another remaining member of the band that long enjoyed a squeaky clean image.

Tomlinson had criticized Malik’s producer Naughty Boy after the former bandmate released solo work soon after the split. Malik then quipped over Twitter to Tomlinson: “Remember when you had a life and stopped making bitchy comments about mine?”

The 2015 Billboard Music Awards was hosted by Ludacris and Chrissy Teigen.
