AWARDING THE BEST OF MUSIC
This award night was all about bravura performances — it also featured an emotional performance by Miley Cyrus
Sunday Night in Las Vegas saw some of the world’s best musicians getting under one roof to celebrate the best of music in the last one year. The threehour show — hosted by hiphop artist Ludacris and former High School Musical star Vanessa Hudgins — included performances by artists Nicki Minaj, The Chainsmokers, and Imagine Dragons. Minaj kicked off the evening’s proceedings and set the stage on fire with her nine-minute dance medley, featuring artists such as David Guetta, Jason Derulo and Lil Wayne. Singer Miley Cyrus gave an emotional performance, as she sang her recently released single, Malibu. The 24-yearold singer choked up while singing the lines, “dream come true” and a “brand new start” towards the end of the song.
