Ken Jeong hosted the ABC broadcast from the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. //www.hitfix.com/galleries/best-and-worst-of-the-billboard-music-awards-britney-rihanna-nicki

2011 Billboard Music Awards: Did Ken Jeong rock as the host?

"Community" and "The Hangover" movies star Ken Jeong hosted the 2011 Billboard Music Awards. How do you think he did?His opening musical number left a little to be desired, comedy-wise, but he did tickle the ol' ivories. We didn't know Leung could play the piano! The interesting things about him just keep on coming, since he also has a medical degree from the University of North Carolina. Crazy.Jeong's Elvis bit with "Modern Family's" Eric Stonestreet wasn't our favorite hosting moment, but Jeong did have a funny behind-the-scenes glimpse of him running amok in Las Vegas. We liked him swimming in the gondola river and harassing gondola riders at the Venetian. "The Hangover" cameo from Ed Helms, Bradley Cooper and Zach Galifianakis could've been much funnier and not just a segue into Keith Urban's performance. Jeong's Flavor Flav was kind of funny, especially since he kept yelling, "Not racist, not racist!"Video below of some of Ken's... //blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2011/05/2011-billboard-music-awards-did-ken-jeong-rock-as-the-host.html

Neil Diamond receives Icon Award and performs at 2011 Billboard Music Awards

Music legend Neil Diamond received the Icon Award at the 2011 Billboard Music Awards and then regaled the crowd with a rousing performance. Diamond says of the Icon Award, "I love it. I don't know what it means, exactly, to be an icon. But I always wanted to be one. And I guess now I am. This has been a heck of a year. First the Rock 'n' Roll Hall of Fame lets me in, go figure. And now I'm an icon. I'm going to Google it right after the show and find out exactly how an icon is supposed to handle himself. This is absolutely wonderful ... it's too much. I'm gonna shut up and sing."And then he did. Diamond performed his legendary hits "Sweet Caroline" and "America," backed by a full gospel choir on the second song. The crowd went wild, as well they should. We particularly liked the shot of Eric Stonestreet... //blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2011/05/neil-diamond-receives-icon-award-and-performs-at-2011-billboard-music-awards.html

Keith Urban's 'Long Hot Summer' lights up 2011 Billboard Music Awards

Country superstar Keith Urban was on hand with his beautiful wife Nicole Kidman for the 2011 Billboard Music Awards. Urban performed his 2010 single "Long Hot Summer," which has so far been released in only Canada and Australia. Perhaps this is the single's coming out party in the United States?Not only was he rocking the guitar for "Summer," but in one of the funnier bits of the night, Urban had a little dueling banjos moment with Billboard host Ken Jeong. Urban showed off not only the infamous dueling banjos song, but also a little "Stairway to Heaven" and several other songs, if you were listening closely.We'll post video of the dueling banjos bit as soon as we can find it, it was pretty great. Did you catch it?... //blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2011/05/keith-urbans-long-hot-summer-lights-up-2011-billboard-music-awards.html

Cee Lo Green flies through the air for 2011 Billboard Music Awards

Cee Lo Green was on hand at the 2011 Billboard Music Awards to perform a medley of his songs, while decked out in a very sparkly suit and a similarly bedazzled piano. It was a fun time, but got even more amazing when the piano took off flying through the air.Cee Lo performed "Crazy," his 2006 single as a part of Gnarls Barkley, and his solo singles "Bright Lights Bigger City" and "Forget You." It was a sight to behold, especially when he and his entire piano did a complete 360 flip in the air. It aired before the half-way point, but we think we are safe in saying it was the best performance of the night.What did you think? Were you crazy over Cee Lo or do you want to tell him to forget you? In case you missed it, we've got video below of Cee Lo's performance.... //blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2011/05/cee-lo-green-flies-through-the-air-for-2011-billboard-music-awards.html
