But when you've got a pop song as perfect as "The Middle," sometimes you're best off just leaving well enough alone, and that's what they did with their emphatic rendition of the top 5 hit, with Maren Morris' soaring vocal proving that whatever circuitous route it took to end up with her on the song, it was clearly worth the trouble. Based on her first solitary performance on Sunday night, the ex- Fifth Harmony member will offer a spectacle that combines dancing, fiery visuals and a voice with more than a little nuance. Jackson special a quarter-century ago is just as important today: But with her similarly emotional, rain-soaked performance of her Sweetenerlead single -- a song certainly no stranger to tragedy itself -- Ariana pivoted the catharsis back to a musical one with typical grace and professionalism, and with some show-stopping vocal runs in the final chorus that made "No Tears" even more of a wallop than usual. The vocal calisthenics threatened to overshadow the song in spots, but that's fine -- "Fall in Line" was basically designed for its duet partners to stunt over it in such grand fashion, so that's sort of the point anyway. Her belief that the fights for personal freedom and political freedom are forever intertwined, and that love truly is the best way to combat both. Watching Cher perform two of her biggest solo hits at an awards show in is a treat, but she was up to the task of dazzling an arena and joining in with her flexible dance crew. The forever block-rocking "Nasty" was an obvious choice, guaranteed by then-soon-to-be President Trump's thoughtless comments to be an anthem for the ensuing MeToo era, and a quick dip into the iconic intro choreography to "If" -- which Janet can still nail at age 52 -- was an inspired break. Here are Billboard's ten favorite performances from the night that was. But the real coup was "Throb," an explicit '90s Janet club favorite that was never even released as an official single, but endures as one of her most addictive bangers and most personal, radical statements. The group's momentum has only continued to skyrocket since their coming-out win at the BBMAs, and it's not decelerating anytime soon. Between the trio, En Vogue and Janet, it was sorta hard not to be left wishing for an entire show of '93 throwbacks: Simplifying the pop-rock blueprint of her new single and letting the twang in her voice take center stage, Cyrus signaled to the fans rooting for a country-influenced new sound that, yes, happy tears are very much allowed. Where are K7 and The Breeders when you need 'em? Traipsing around inside the famous Bellagio fountain in Las Vegas, Drake commanded our attention, and more than justified his record-breaking celebration. It worked, and then some. If that status wasn't clear from the screaming in the audience every time the group's presence was even suggested, it was from their performance of new single "Fake Love," an immaculately choreographed, energetically delivered rendition with the fans filling in the gaps at every possible opportunity.

But which of the many excellent performances rose to the top? The highlights from the vocal powerhouse's typically room-shaking performance were many, but hard to beat Taylor Swift in the audience, miming along to her own "Look What You Made Me Do" chorus, fingernail-check and all.

Here are Billboard's ten favorite performances from the night that was. En Vogue Keeping the vibe alive from Janet Jackson's Icon performance,Salt-n-Pepa took the stage to perform an anniversary-honoring medley of their four best-remembered hits: Her belief that the fights for personal freedom and political freedom are forever intertwined, and that love truly is the best way to combat both. But the real coup was "Throb," an explicit '90s Janet club favorite that was never even released as an official single, but endures as one of her most addictive bangers and most personal, radical statements. Fury Road, with the rap queen channeling Furiosa as she hopped across songs and collaborators with ease. Between the trio, En Vogue and Janet, it was sorta hard not to be left wishing for an entire show of '93 throwbacks: Ed Sheeran, "Galway Girl" Beamed in via satellite from Dublin, Ireland, the energy from Ed Sheeran's rendition of Divide cut "Galway Girl" was still fairly palpable, as Ed's racing vocal and frenzied acoustic delivery carried the song with impressive energy, despite not having a rhythm track as accompaniment. But which of the many excellent performances rose to the top? The forever block-rocking "Nasty" was an obvious choice, guaranteed by then-soon-to-be President Trump's thoughtless comments to be an anthem for the ensuing MeToo era, and a quick dip into the iconic intro choreography to "If" -- which Janet can still nail at age 52 -- was an inspired break. It worked, and then some. Kelly Clarkson, '18 Hits Medley If Ariana Grande's stunning opening number didn't get BBMAs viewers back in the mood for music celebration, Kelly Clarkson's monologue-ending medley of recent smashes -- from the wide-ranging likes of Kendrick Lamar, Imagine Dragons and an overcome-with-disbelief Maren Morris -- certainly got the show right on track. The vocal calisthenics threatened to overshadow the song in spots, but that's fine -- "Fall in Line" was basically designed for its duet partners to stunt over it in such grand fashion, so that's sort of the point anyway. Jackson special a quarter-century ago is just as important today: Watching Cher perform two of her biggest solo hits at an awards show in is a treat, but she was up to the task of dazzling an arena and joining in with her flexible dance crew. Where are K7 and The Breeders when you need 'em? The "Protect Our Children" message on Khalid's shirt was also undeniably powerful, though actually not as much so as the titular message on Mendes' and the choir's sweatshirts, a powerful one-word phrase that almost serves as its own statement of defiance in today's age of such relentless teenage tragedy. The group's momentum has only continued to skyrocket since their coming-out win at the BBMAs, and it's not decelerating anytime soon. Traipsing around inside the famous Bellagio fountain in Las Vegas, Drake commanded our attention, and more than justified his record-breaking celebration.

Ariana Grande, "No Tears Left to Cry" Ariana had the unenviable task of opening the BBMAs following an appropriately tear-choked, wrenching speech from Kelly Clarkson about the Santa Fe shooting that happened late last week, which served as the show's cold open.
