It's time for the Billboard Music Awards, spring's big night of music showcasing the industry's top hit makers of the past year. During Sunday night's show, the actions of those artists and the events of the ceremony also inspire the internet to make memes and jokes from the 2016 Billboard Music Awards to celebrate music's hottest hits in hilarious fashion. After all, the past year has included some classic memes related to today's biggest artists, like Kanye West's Twitter rants, Taylor Swift's squad, and all of those Drake "Hotline Bling" memes that took over the internet last fall.
Not only will the Billboard Music Awards be giving out, well, awards, but there are plenty of performances from the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas to sing along to and critique to the Twitterverse. According to Billboard, pop music royalty such as Justin Bieber, Britney Spears, Shawn Mendes, Meghan Trainer, Nick Jonas and Tove Lo, Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani, and so many more are set to perform new hits and old during the show. And there's nothing the internet loves more than following the thrills of a live performance/event in real time, whether it's on Twitter, Instagram, Snapchat, or whatever else the kids are using these days. No matter what, the internet knows how to make it fun and funny.
