Miley Cyrus, Celine Dion & BTS Crushed Twitter During 2017 Billboard Music Awards.
Miley Cyrus performs during the 2017 Billboard Music Awards at T-Mobile Arena on May 21, 2017, in Las Vegas.
You clearly were psyched to see Miley Cyrus take you on a trip to “Malibu” and Celine Dion set out on the Titanic one more time. Those two dramatic performances were the most tweeted moments during Sunday night’s (May 21) 2017 Billboard Music Awards, according to Twitter. Cyrus’ teary take on her new country-pop single — as well as the loving intro by her sister Noah joking “for the first time in years with pants on, my big sister Miley Cyrus!” was the most tweeted moment of the three-hour show.
Right behind was Dion’s stunning 20th-anniversary version of her Titanic theme song “My Heart Will Go On,” performed in a giant chandelier while wearing a cloud-like white dress. And though he was in Santiago, Chile, Ed Sheeran’s “Castle on a Hill” killed the crowd in Las Vegas and online, as he was #3 on the most tweeted tally. Rounding out the top five were Icon award winner Cher’s high-energy run through her biggest hit, “Belief,” and Julia Michaels’ intense performance of her solo single, “Issues.”
As for the most tweeted-about celebs of the night, did you think k-pop icons BTS weren’t going to top that chart? Their social chart win leaped them over show-opener Nicki Minaj, as well as Justin Bieber (who came in third), followed by Camila Cabello and multiple-award winners The Chainsmokers. The most-tweeted about performance also went to Miley, again followed by Dion, Sheeran, Cher and Michaels.
Plenty of celebs were also live-tweeting the action from Las Vegas, including lots of artist’s praising each other’s work.
