Another one.. and another one.. AND ANOTHER ONE! Some legendary ladies (Celine Dion & Cher) may have stole the night, but it was Drake who was the biggest winner last night at the Billboard Music Awards in Las Vegas. 

All eyes were on him to see if he would surpass Adele with the most award wins in a single year. Well, last night he did, with 13. He later performed, taking a page out of the Britney Spears handbook and did an amazing performance in the fountain at the Bellagio. He also may have scored a date after hitting on Vanessa Hudgens during one of his acceptance speeches.
