Taking a page from the Grammys and the MTV VMAs and other awards show books that call for riskier fashion choices, the ladies of the Billboard Music Awards didn't disappoint Sunday night. Or maybe they did, depending on what disappoints you.
On the blue carpet before the show and onstage at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, the queens of pop, rap, country and whatever Ke$ha does pushed the limits. And then Madonna pushed a little further.
Check out the lineup below and be sure to vote for your ... favorite?
The Material Girl busted out the garter belts and a fishnet mini skirt with matching fishnet glove things -- it's goth "Deadliest Catch."
The country princess sparkled in a blue mini-dress long before she changed into a unicorn T-shirt to perform the song "22."
You have to be getting to like her short hair by now, right? It works. How about her diamond-patterned jumpsuit?
Thigh-high red leather boots, a shiny red leotard thing with red feathery arms -- J.Lo is the sexiest Muppet we've ever seen.
Does the wind blow in Las Vegas? If it did on Sunday night, that little dress flap would have left even less to the imagination.
Maybe this is why Justin Bieber took her back. Good thing that whoever slashed her dress with a sword left that part on her hip intact.
In an answer to the red that J.Lo busted out, Minaj went a little more conservative, but that look in her eyes definitely says, "Look at my EYES."
