Hello and Good Morning to all our readers tuning in on this clearly beautiful Thursday morning. I’m here to start off your day by offering up the rundown of last nights “Billboard Music Awards” and give you the winners of the honor. We didn’t watch the show but made sure to cull this together for you as quick as possible just in case this event’s results were of interest to you. Here goes.
Khalid WINNER: Post Malone
Hey there my friends, so I am back once more with the topic being “The Shorty Awards” and as you well know, the world is a VERY different place at the moment due to the continuing issues and problems surrounding the Coronavirus. These awards were supposed to be given out at the now shuttered Playstation Theater (which I might add was a venue we loved to visit for PiercingMetal.com stuff) and with large gatherings being forbidden right now they were dished out via a streaming. This marks the first year I’m adding this awards show to my batch of related content so before I share the winners with you here is a little more about what these honors are for.
“The Shorty Awards, also known as the “Shortys”, is an annual awards show recognizing the people and organizations that produce real-time short form content across Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, Instagram, TikTok, Twitch and the rest of the social web”.

Best Actor: WINNER – Rebel Wilson
