Male music stars were the big winners at the 2014 Billboard Music Awards

19 May 2014, 15:55

Los Angeles - Justin Timberlake was the big winner at the Billboard Music Awards on Sunday.

The Take Back The Night hitmaker was awarded seven trophies, including Top Artist and Top Male Artist at the awards ceremony at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada after returning from a seven-year hiatus from the music industry last year with his album The 20/20 Experience.

The 33-year-old star also took home the Top Billboard 200, Top Radio Songs Artist, Top R&B Artist, Top Billboard 200 Album and Top R&B Album awards, although he accepted them via a live video stream as he's currently on tour.

Speaking to viewers, he said: "I'm shocked. I'm stunned. I'm really surprised."

Meanwhile, Demons rockers Imagine Dragons accepted five awards including Top Rock Artist and Top Rock Album, while Pharrell, Robin Thicke and TI were each presented with four gongs for their summer 2013 hit Blurred Lines.

Ludacris hosted the night, which saw performances from Icon Award winner Jennifer Lopez - who took to the stage with Pitbull to premiere the official anthem of this year's FIFA World Cup We Are One (Ole Ola) - as well as Miley Cyrus, Katy Perry, Iggy Azalea and even Michael Jackson, via a hologram.
