Billboard exalts Lorde, King of Pop

Lorde

A hologram of Michael Jackson made its debut Sunday at the Billboard Music Awards, mirroring the late King of Pop’s signature slick dance moves as some members of the audience became emotional.

The hologram performed “Slave to the Rhythm,” a song from Jackson’s new posthumous album “Xscape,” along with a plethora of background dancers, beaming lights and fire blasts.

It was easily the biggest moment at the awards show at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.

Kendall Jenner could take second place for unintentionally creating a big moment during the show. The reality star fumbled over her words when introducing newcomers 5 Seconds of Summer.

“And now we welcome … One … ,” the 21-year-old said, seeming to almost say One Direction, as she put her head down. “Guys, I’m the worst reader.”

Jenner then introduced a video featuring the Australian pop group, who performed their rising hit “She Looks So Perfect.”

Lorde won best new act and top rock song for the ubiquitous hit, “Royals.” The 17-year-old New Zealander entered the night as the top contender, along with Imagine Dragons, where the Billboard Music Awards marked a homecoming for the band.

The Las Vegas rockers won the night’s first trophy, top rock album, for their 2012 debut, “Night Visions.”
