The 2019 Billboard Music Awards took place at the MGM Garden Arena in Las Vegas on Wednesday 1 May.

The ceremony was hosted by Kelly Clarkson and featured a number of star performances from Taylor Swift and Brendon Urie, Halsey with BTS, and the Jonas Brothers.

Cardi B and Drake dominated the awards themselves, with the "Nice for What" artist making BBMAs history by becoming the most awarded artist of all time, taking home 12 prizes to bring his total up to 27.

Drake was presented with the Top Billboard 200 Album for Scorpion, released last year, when he also gave a surprise shout-out to Maisie Williams' character Arya Stark from Game of Thrones.

After thanking friends and family, the artist added: “And hey, shout out to Arya Stark for putting in that work last week."

As those who have watched the most recent Game of Thrones episode know, Arya was key to defeating the Night King.

The episode, titled “The Long Night”, was “gritty, epic and profoundly silly”, according to our critic, who awarded the episode five stars. Meanwhile, the intense trailer for next week’s episode sees everyone turn their attentions to the Iron Throne and the fate of Cersei Lannister.
