Madonna tops the bill

7 Days in Dubai - - GLOBAL NEWS -

Madonna paid homage to Prince by wear­ing his sig­na­ture colour and sing­ing Pur­ple Rain at this year’s Bill­board Mu­sic Awards. Sit­ting atop a pur­ple throne, she kicked off the trib­ute with a ver­sion of Noth­ing Com­pares 2 U, which Prince, who died last month, wrote and Sinead O’Con­nor recorded. She was teary-eyed as she sang the song, videos and photos of Prince pro­jected be­hind her. Adele, who didn’t at­tend the show be­cause she’s on tour, won the big award on the night, Top Artist, Justin Bieber was a dou­ble win­ner, in­clud­ing a win for top male artist, while Wiz Khal­ifa also picked up two mul­ti­ple. Ri­hanna was given the Chart Achieve­ment Award.
