Billboard Music Award winners

It was another baffling night at the Billboard Music Awards, as everyone watched to see the winners in musical categories that should really be a foregone conclusion, since the awards are from Billboard, and seem to be based on sales, which is what Billboard covers as the leading publication covering the music industry. We still don’t get it. There’s a Top 200 Billboard Artist category and a Top 100 Artist Category, and we’re thinking that should be the same, and yet one went to Justin Timberlake and the other to Imagine Dragons.  [photo via..]

Actually, most of the awards went to  Justin Timberlake or Imagine Dragons. (Michael Jackson stole the show, of course.) We can’t say there were any surprises, but here’s a list of the night’s top winners (marked in color, yeah), in case you had a pool going and didn’t make your predictions based on album sales…
