Eminem was the big winner at the 2011 Billboard Music Awards this year, taking home the award for Top Artist, as well as a bunch of others.
As importantly, however, was Enrique Iglesias winning Top Latin Album, beating out long time adversaries Marc Anthony and Shakira.
In one of the most fiercely contested categories of the night, Iglesias’ album Euphoria stole the show with an epic come from behind win (we can only assume, as the voting process is very secretive).
Eminem did win Top Artist, Top Male Artist, Top Rap Artist, Top Rap Album, and Top Billboard 200 Album. While the most fun to say out loud award of the night, Top Pop Song, was won by Taio Cruz for ‘Dynamite’.
The Justin Bieber also won big, taking home 6 awards, including Top New Artist, Top Social Artist, and Top Pop Album.
Another notable winner was Mumford & Sons, winning both Top Rock Album and Top Alternative Album, for the same album, which isn’t easy to do.
Other winners included Rihanna, Lady Gaga, Black Eyed Peas, Taylor Swift, and Neon Trees.
Congratulations to therm all.
