(CNN) — The Billboard Music Awards took place Wednesday evening with Kelly Clarkson as the host.

Despite not having an audience inside the Dolby Theater in Los Angeles, Clarkson still brought dynamic energy to the stage.

"Tonight is about the way music touches us all because music connects with us in so many ways, no matter who you are it moves us sometimes literally," Clarkson said.

Taylor Swift and Billie Eilish led with the most nominations. Eilish took home multiple awards including Top Female Artist. The most coveted award of the night, Top Artist, went to Post Malone.

Numerous artists performed throughout the show, including John Legend, Alicia Keys Brandy, En Vogue, BTS and Luke Combs.

It was also a big night for Garth Brooks, who received the Icon Award, which was presented by his good friend, Cher. Brooks performed a medley of his greatest hits that included "The Thunder Rolls," "The River," "Callin' Baton Rouge," "Standing Outside the Fire," "Dive Bar," "Friends in Low Places" and "The Dance."
