Simply put, Taylor Swift owned the 2013 Billboard Music Awards.

First, the artist took home 11 trophies. No, that is not a misprint. 11!

Then, she performed her hit "22," starting off backstage... making her way through the crowd... and ending up with a bunch of back-up dancers, jumping and playing around on stage.

Watch that Taylor Swift performance now.

But Swift saved the best for last when she accepted Artist of the Year and joked at the mic: “To the fans... I just want you to know this one thing: You are the longest and best relationship I’ve ever had.”

Self-zing! Watch the speech here and then compare it to Justin Bieber's Milestone Award speech. One is self-deprecating; the other anything but...

Singer Miguel made headlines at the 2013 Billboard Music Awards by attempting to jump over fans' heads during his performance, but instead landing on them.

In an ugly accident that could have been way worse, Miguel was performing "Adorn" when he tried to pull off an acrobatic move, only to fail epically:

Twitter users quickly expressed their disbelief, with some wondering whether the women drilled by Miguel were seriously injured or even killed.

The phrase "Did Miguel" soon trended worldwide on Twitter. Fortunately, he did not. They were a little shaken up with some busted glasses, that's it.

"Yes they are absolutely OK! He was dancing and hugging them post jump," said a rep for Billboard, to the relief of many (especially Miguel himself).

With news that the people were alright came the obligatory memes. Check out Miguel's fall - and him meeting a girl he nearly killed - in GIF form:

Justin Bieber took home the first-ever Milestone Award at the 2013 Billboard Music Awards last night.

He then stirred up some controversy with his acceptance speech.

After simply standing at the mic and soaking in the applause, Bieber went on to say he's only 19 years old and "I think I'm doing a pretty good job."

Then, clearly referring to such recent controversies at alleging spitting on his neighbor, Justin went on to say focus should be on his "craft," not his actions.

"This is not a gimmick," he added. "I'm an artist and I should be taken seriously and all this other bull should not be spoken of."

Watch now and also determine: Is Bieber being booed?

In typical fashion, Chris Brown has responded to critics - including Pink - of his clearly lip-synched Billboard Music Awards performance Sunday night.

"One day if i lip-sync, i hope i do it as well as him," Pink wrote via her Twitter account, with her husband, Carey Hart, getting his wife's back.

"Don't hold ya breath waiting for me to stop doing me!" Brown tweeted later, adding that "anyone who is upset obviously is upset with their lives."

"Make your music... make a difference.. Be better than me! Godbless!"

Despite receiving a standing ovation from fans after the spirited rendition of "Turn Up the Music" (above), Brown was lambasted by critics.

Fans of Brown immediately lashed out at the 32-year-old mother, whose real name is Alecia Beth Moore, which prompted another tweet.

"Oh my lord, its so easy… its so damn easy. Keep it coming people, this is some good reading," she tweeted, defiantly, at Team Breezy.

"Im pretty sure I saw my wife did that same performance, but she was 3 months pregnant and actually sang the song," Carey Hart wrote.

Joe Jona even took to Twitter to post a tweet about Brown's BMA performance. "What happened to people singing live???" Jonas tweeted.

Despite all that, Brown took home Billboard's "Top R&B Artist" award.

Ray J was almost physically removed from the Billboard Music Awards last night after an angry confrontation with Whitney Houston's family members.

Pat Houston, Whitney's sister-in-law/manager, was seated next to Ray J, the person Pat believes was a very bad influence on the late music legend.

Minutes before a tribute to Whitney, in which Jordin Sparks sang and Bobbi Kristina Brown accepted an award, Pat asked her security to nix Ray J.

After Whitney's ex-BF refused to budge, Pat's security summoned hotel security, along with several uniformed officers to physically remove Ray.

Just before it got ugly, security warned Pat that things would likely get physical and it would almost be caught on video, just as Whitney was to be honored.

Sources say Pat then grudgingly recanted and Ray J stayed.

Later, Ray reportedly complained to friends about the incident, saying "Pat ruined what was a great opportunity to honor the woman who I loved."

A rep for the Houston family later admitted they did ask Ray J to be moved from his seat because Billboard told them they needed that particular seat.

Ray J had a ticket with the proper seat number, so he refused to budge, and security was called, but the Houstons deny any lingering feud with Ray.

In related news (not really), Kim Kardashian is the hottest woman in the world, according to Zoo Weekly. She can thank Ray for that glorious title.

Katy Perry is never one to hold anything back.

The singer performed her new song "Wide Awake" at the Billboard Music Awards last night, a song written for her upcoming 3D documentary movie and which appears to specifically address her recent divorce from comedian Russell Brand.

Watch and listen to her performance here:

"I'm wide awake. I was in the dark, I was falling hard with an open heart. How did I read the stars so wrong. I was dreaming for so long. I wish I knew then what I know now. I wouldn't dive in, I wouldn't bow down," she sings.

But the song isn't about the singer wallowing in heartbreak for long, at least.

"Not losing any sleep," she says. "I picked up every piece and landed on my feet."

"Need nothing to complete myself. I am born again, outta the lion's den. I don't have to pretend. The story's over now, the end."

If the song is as autobiographical as it sounds, she's moved on. Good for her.

Blond beauty Carrie Underwood performed the title track to her chart-topping new album, Blown Away, live at last night's Billboard Music Awards.

Showing off her unmistakably powerful pipes (and other attributes), Carrie commanded the stage with what she calls one of the darkest songs she's ever written.

Dark or not, it was a terrific effort, don't you agree?

At the event, Carrie talked to reporters about Robin Gibb, who died earlier in the day, and how she used to listen to the late Bee Gees singer as a kid.

"My parents both listened to the Bee Gees quite a bit when I was little, so I was definitely exposed to them at an early age," she said.

"They just had a sound that was all their own, obviously, [it was] never duplicated," she added. "They were very influential on music in general."

"It's very sad to hear about any loss. There have been a lot of legends lost this year, so it's always sad to see it happen, but they are paying a couple of tributes here, and I know that they'll be classy and respectful and allow us all to remember them."

The most notable: John Legend and Jordin Sparks' tribute to Whitney.
