Billboard Music Awards 2015: List of Winners!

by at .  Updated at .

The biggest names in music came together for a night of chart-topping craziness Sunday as the 2015 Billboard Music Awards were handed out.

Heading into the event, the burning question among music fans was whether Taylor Swift would win all the honors or merely a bunch of them.

We kid. Only not really. This event weighs a star's popularity more heavily than most award shows, and Taylor is pretty much peerless lately.

On top of the Taylor Swift "Bad Blood" video release," how much hardware did she take home? A LOT. But she wasn't alone in the winners' circle.

In all, about a dozen awards were handed out on the air Sunday night in between just as many performances, many of which we'll be sharing shortly.
