From the red carpet to the main stage, the 2014 Billboard Music Awards on Sunday (May 18) in Las Vegas was packed with memorable moments. King of Pop Michael Jackson somehow rocked the house. Ariana Grande made a case for why she may be princess of the genre. And Miley Cyrus rocked the house without actually being in the house or performing her own song.

Justin Timberlake Dancing Because He Won (Big!)

Justin Timberlake

Out of the country on his "20/20" tour, Justin Timberlake wasn't in Vegas to accept his awards. It's unfortunate, because he received seven Billboard Music Award trophies for Top Artist, Top Billboard 200 Artist and Top Billboard 200 Album ("The 20/20 Experience") and more during the three-hour show at the MGM Grand Arena. But along with his tour buddies, he recorded acceptance speeches from overseas. Randomly, he danced during them.
