Sunday’s Billboard Music Awards were dominated by Kendrick Lamar and Ed Sheeran, with each earning six trophies throughout the night. Sheeran and Lamar, who both visited the Stern Show in 2017, went into the evening tied with Bruno Mars for most nominations with 15 noms a piece.

Recent Stern Show guest Kelly Clarkson hosted this year’s ceremony from the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. In addition to the night’s winners in competitive categories — which are based on fan interactions with music, including album and digital song sales, streaming, radio airplay, touring, and social engagement — Billboard honored Janet Jackson (above) and her more than four decades in music with this year’s Icon Award.
