ICYMI: These 7 GIFs sum up everything you need to know about the Billboard Music Awards 2016

The Billboard Music Awards is always a fun event with pop’s best and weirdest all coming out of the woodwork to give memorable performances. Here’s all the best moments you need to see from the BBMAs in GIFs:

1) Britney Spears opened the ceremony with a medley of hits which showcased just how many times she’s struck pop gold over the years. While there were tons of amazing moments from the performance, the sight of Britney riding a giant guitar is a memory we will forever treasure.

2) The 5H girls took to the stage to bash out a stellar performance of ‘Work From Home’ and the hair flips are to die for. This moment is pure #hairflipgoals.

3) When it was a big fat ‘NO’ from Meghan Trainor.

4) Justin Bieber slaying his dance moves during his performance of ‘Company/Sorry’. The crowd went into meltdown.

5) Rihanna showing off her vocal talent during her performance of ‘Love on the Brain’. Slay queen.

6) The moment that almost never happened. Kesha’s big comeback performance did not disappoint. She may have been through the wringer lately but she pulled it together for this performance and earned herself a well-deserved standing O from the crowd.
