We got to watch the show from the press room so unfortunately we missed out on seeing all of the wonderful performances but we did enjoy The Fray, Fergie and Mary J Blige who was clearly the big Billboard winner of the night. Mary J took home nine awards including Female R&B/hip-hop artist of the year. Other winners included Carrie Underwood, T.I., Chris Brown, and Tony Bennett who was presented the Billboard Century Award by Stevie Wonder. It was a fun filled night.
