BBMA Press Room & Results: Taylor Swift, Meghan Trainor Show Off Multiple Trophies

A ceremony that began with the premiere of Taylor Swift’s “Bad Blood” video ultimately issued eight trophies to the singer-songwriter.

There is no way around it: Taylor Swift dominated the 2015 Billboard Music Awards.

That Taylor Swift commanded the greatest quantity of attention does not, however, mean none was left for the other artists. Numerous performers captivated the live audience. And several high-profile entertainers with names other than Taylor Swift won awards.
