While the 2017 Billboard Music Awards was a celebration for the entire music industry, the night essentially became a Drake victory party after he took home 12 awards out of over 20 nominations.
Thanks to the incredible success Drake has had this year, the BMAs was more another reason to turn up rather than a high-stakes kind of night for the rapper.
There were many great moments for Drake on Sunday night, but three in particular took the cake. From squashing his beef with Ludacris to flirting with a fellow child star and, of course, that performance in front of the Bellagio fountains in Las Vegas, here are the highlights of Drizzy's BMAs night:
When Drake won Top Billboard 200 Album, he used his time on stage to shout out Ludacris saying, "I know we haven't always seen eye to eye but I've always been a big fan of yours, I got a lot of love for you face to face while I'm still here."
He went on to call out Nicki Minaj, saying, "I'm so glad we found our way back because I love you and I could never, ever, ever see it any other way," and ended by thanking Lil Wayne for the risks he took, saying if he hadn't "none of us would be here tonight."
Finally he called out his father who sitting in the crowd, "My dad got on a purple suit with purple shoes! Boy if you don't stop!"

Drake also used his time on stage during his acceptance speech for Top Billboard 200 Album to say what's up to co-host Vanessa Hudgens for all the world to see, saying, "Tonight I want to say Vanessa Hudgens you look incredible tonight." As you can see, Nicki Minaj was feeling a little left out.
Not only that, but Karen Civil caught Drake putting his Twitter fingers to work moments later to seal the deal. We see you, Drizzy.
Can anyone dispute that Drizzy's still got it? The view from the top must be nice.
