4. Christina Aguilera’s Quiet Reception
Though Xtina’s tribute to Whitney Houston received mixed reviews from fans on social media, the crowd seemed to enjoy the pop diva’s medley of the late singer’s songs. Cheers were kept to a minimum, however, as the audience waited for Aguilera to hit the high notes.
5. Get on Your Feet!
Though many performers received standing ovations, Demi Lovato, Alessia Cara, and, of course, BTS had the crowd on their feet for the entirety of their performances.
6. RiRi’s Army
Just before Lady Gaga won the award for Favorite Female Pop/Rock Artist and accepted it live from her concert in Washington D.C., an audience member loudly shouted “Rihanna!” The “Diamonds” singer was nominated in the same category. Love for RiRi never dies!
