Billboard Music Awards Performance Recap: The Good, The Bad and The Ugly |Video|


“The GOOD”:

Beyoncé stans fans everyone got their official dose of Bey tonight via her extravagant performance at the Billboard Music Awards. As mentioned on Ms. Drama TV, Beyonce was honored by close relatives, famous friends and collaborators — including First Lady Michelle Obama, Lady Gaga, The-Dream, U2’s Bono, Babyface, Stevie Wonder, Solange and her son Daniel “Juelz” Smith, Barbra Streisand, and her mother and father.

Bey’s performance lived up to the anticipation as she took the stage in a barely-there silver number to perform “Run the World (Girls),” the lead single from her fourth studio album, “4,” for the first time ever. Virtual duplicates of Beyonce rocked behind her until an impressive 100 back-up dancers emerged to rock collectively to the girl-power anthem.

Shortly after the performance, Tina Knowles and Juelz presented Beyoncé with the Billboard Millenium Award, as the singer breathlessly thanked her parents, Destiny Child members Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams and even former members of the group, LaToya Jackson and LaTavia Roberson. Beyoncé ended her speech by shouting out her husband saying “I love me some Jay-Z.

“The BAD”:

Britney Spears and Rihanna teamed up to kick off the Billboard Music Awards in a S & M racy performance mash-up. While Rihanna managed to hold her own – to some degree, Britney had trouble getting it together. Although not a total epic fail, this registers as our “Bad”. Check their performance below:

The “UGLY”:

Nicki Minaj’s vision for a great performance tonight didn’t manifest itself on the Billboard stage. The Young Money raptress performed “Super Bass” with a bunch of discombobulated dancers and a lackluster routine. Considering she wasn’t even singing (as she opted to lip-synch the entire time) – we at least hoped for more in her performance – but unfortunately Nicki failed to bring it. She did however bring out Britney Spears for a duet of the remix “Till the World Ends.” Unfortunately, the performance was more a sign of the end to TIME than May 21st 2011.
