The 2022 award show season continued over the weekend with music's biggest stars showing out in Las Vegas for the Billboard Music Awards.

The night saw a myriad of artists, albums, and songs celebrated across many genres with Drake and Olivia Rodrigo specifically taking home the night's top honors by winning the awards for Top Artist and Top New Artist respectively.

Meanwhile, in the highly competitive dance and electronic categories, Australian dance music trio, PNAU, bested the field of Top Dance/Electronic Song with their remix of Elton John and Dua Lipa's "Cold Heart." The radio-ready track eked out a victory over Tiësto's "The Business," Travis Scott & HVME's "Goosebumps," Farruko's "Pepas", and the super-collaboration from Regard, Troye Sivan, and Tate McRae, "You."
