Another Billboard Music Awards is officially in the books. The 2023 iteration of the ceremony streamed on Sunday (Nov. 19), and featured the biggest hitmakers and chart-toppers of the past year taking the stage for a series of unforgettable performances.
Medleys were popular during the night. Karol G kicked off the program with a trio of songs, which included “Qlona” and “Ojos Ferrari” from her Billboard 200 No. 1 album Mañana Será Bonito and the project’s expanded (Bichota Season) release, in addition to the yet-to-be released Kali Uchis collaboration, “Labios Mordidos,” which hails from Uchis’ upcoming album, Orquideas.
K-pop group NewJeans — members Danielle, Haerin, Hannie, Hyein and Minji — treated its devoted Bunnies to a performance of not one, but two of its popular singles, taking to the stage for a showcase of “Super Shy,” released as the lead single for the group’s No. 1 EP, Get Up, and “OMG.” The K-pop idols, who won the BBMA for top global K-pop artist, were surrounded by a fleet of dancers for “Super Shy,” but kept it to just the five of them for the bouncy choreography for “OMG.”
Tate McRae, Billboard‘s latest cover star, left fans feeling “Greedy” for more with her performance of her viral track, which lands at No. 11 on the Billboard Hot 100 this week, further setting the tone for her forthcoming album, Think Later.
