M Recap: 2012 Billboard Music Awards!


Hey M Girls!

Last night was one of the biggest nights in music, and if you were following our live tweets you know we loved the whole thing! Adele was the night's big winner, taking home a whopping 12 trophies, including "Top Artist" and "Top Female Artist". Just behind her was hip-hop duo LMFAO who won a total of six awards for their hit "Party Rock Anthem" -- wowza!

But that's not all! Justin Bieber took home the "Top Social Artist" award, while Taylor Swift was honored as "Woman of the Year" -- we love seeing our faves racking up awards! Plus, Katy Perry debuted a BRAND new song, "Wide Awake" and she sounded awesome!

Overall, it was a night of fun performances, celeb sightings and fab fashion (check back later for our special Billboard fashion blog.)
