R+B star Usher dominated the BILLBOARD MAGAZINE MUSIC AWARDS in Las Vegas
last night (08DEC04) winning 11 trophies, including Artist of the Year.
USHER's fellow R+B singer Alicia Keys walked off with seven Billboard
awards, while hip-hop duo Outkast took five and rapper Kanye West four.
Soul legend Stevie Wonder received a lifetime achievement award.
Of his many prizes, Usher says, "It's been about 10 years since we
started, and we knew this would happen.
"We don't put out a record without a number one record, do we?"
Green Day, Gwen Stefani and Nelly were among the performers at the show
at the MGM Grand.
