2011 Billboard Music Awards - winners

After a five-year hiatus, the Billboard Awards returned with bang at last night's show in Las Vegas. The evening's host was Ken Jeong from The Hangover 2.

Taylor Swift was the big winner of the night, taking home three trophies including Top Artist, where her fellow nominees were Justin Bieber, Eminem, Lady Gaga and Rihanna.

The other nominees all picked up prizes of their own, however, and Canadian Justin Bieber picked up seven awards total, including Top New Artist and  Fan Favorite of the Year. Eminem swept the rap categories and was named Top Male Artist, while Rihanna was named Top Female Artist.

The show included performances by Britney Spears, Nicki Minaj, Far East Movement, Mary J Blige and Lil Wayne. Beyonce was presented with the Billboard Millenium Award for her career achievements.
