Let's be real. When it comes to the Billboard Music Awards, it's all about the performances. Basically 97 percent of tonight's show was when one was happening. So here we are, recapping the whopping 17(!!!) performances that took place on the #BBMA stage. Which one was your favorite and least favorite? Recap them with us here, in order of appearance, and we'll remind you of the night's best (and not so much) moments. Leggo... Photos: Best Dressed of the 2013 Billboard Music Awards First things first, Bruno Mars kicked off the show with his song, "Treasure." New single, perhaps? It was perfectly Bruno in every way, aka it was super vintage and we liked it. Next up was Selena Gomez, who basically did her MTV Movie Awards performance of "Come & Get It" over again but in a gold dress instead of a red one and with toilet paper hanging from the ceiling. It was curtains but like, it looked like toilet paper. Then was The Band Perry for all those country fans. They sang "Better Dig Two" and as per usual, Kimberly killed it. At 8:30, we were only a half hour in but already four performances strong. Yup. Icona Pop performed "I Love It." We've loved that song forever but it's nice to finally put two faces to the Swedish duo who sings it, ya know? Next up? Chris Brown. He actually sung live tonight, so gold star for Breezy. He sounded, looked, and danced like Michael Jackson throughout the entire performance of "Fine China," so gold star there too, we guess? Then, it was across the strip to Macklamore and Ryan Lewis. Obvs they sang "Thrift Shop," and obvs everyone in the audience knew every. Single. Word. Circa 9pm, Taylor Swift showed everyone how it's done, performing "22" for the very first time on TV. And she started off backstage and then made her way onstage with approximately 7,000 backup dancers and singers. SUCH a production, and SO T.Swift. Amazing. Taylor is a tough act to follow, but next up was newcomer country singer Kacey Musgraves, who sang her song, "Merry Go 'Round." We kinda like this girl. At this point we're about halfway through the show and Justin Bieber takes the stage! He performed "Take You," a song voted on by his 30 million+ Twitter followers, and he wore a one-sleeved leather jacket. Pretttty sure he lip-synched the chorus but don't quote us on that. Moivng right along, Pitbull and Christina Aguilera (who showed off her new sexy bod) performed "Feel This Moment" and it was great. Then some guy named Morten Harkat joined them on stage and that...was a buzzkill. At a quarter to 10, Miguel took the stage. He wore a white suit, did some splits, and OMG, those vocals. Were. Amazing. And then Chloe Moretz presented her "friend," Ed Sheeran. Since when are they friends? In other news, he sang "Lego House." He is so talented it's not ok. Then, immediately following Ed, Pitbull came back to the stage and joined Jennifer Lopez for "Live It Up." And that they did. 10:15 pm, Biebs is back! He and will.i.am perform #thatpower." It was good, very techno-ish, and Biebs was wearing the same black leather thing as before but this time with leather accents. Then, it was getting late (10:30, aka bedtime) so the strobe lights came out, as did David Guetta, Ne-Yo and Akon. Their performance was fun and was pretty much a dance party. One of the night's last performances was Nicki Minaj and Lil Wayne, and we forgot what song they were singing because all we were doing was staring at Nicki's butt as she gave Weezy a lap dance. Just another night on national television, you guys. And then? OMG, PRINCE, PEOPLE! He got a solid 12 minutes of the show dedicated just to him and his awesomeness, and clearly he was the perfect way to end it. And a perfect way to end this post. Good night, ya'll! OK!

Brian Brooks is a Deadline contributor. IFC Films’ Frances Ha had the last laugh this weekend, opening solid in a pair of theaters each in New York and Los Angeles. The critically well-received feature directed by Noah Baumbach and starring Greta Gerwig grossed $134K, averaging $33,500. It came fairly close to his last feature, Greenberg, which averaged $39,384 when it opened in March 2010 in three locations, but that film, which also starred Gerwig, also included Ben Stiller, Jennifer Jason Leigh and Juno Temple. Frances Ha inched out his acclaimed 2005 Best Screenplay Oscar-nominated The Squid And The Whale in terms of first weekend PSA. That film opened on four runs, averaging $32,461. Frances Ha‘s fellow newcomers, however did not fare nearly as well. IFC Films noted Sunday: “We are thrilled with the opening numbers for Noah Baumbach’s Frances Ha. The film, with a screenplay by Baumbach and star Greta Gerwig, played to sold out shows all weekend long in New York City and Los Angeles. The advanced regional publicity screenings have also been wildly popular as we roll the film out to the top 20 markets this Memorial Day Weekend. The word of mouth on the film has been fantastic and we are thankful to the critical community who has supported the film wholeheartedly. The film is currently 90% “Fresh” on Rotten Tomatoes, and a New York Times ... Read More »
