At last night's 2011 Billboard Music Awards hosted by The Hangover's Ken Jeong, some of music's most recognizable face won big. Of all the stars, it was Beyonce who garnered most of the night's loves, as the singer was awarded with the Billboard Millennium Award, for her music and for her foundation's humanitarian work.

Beyonce put on a rockin' performance of her new song, "Run the World (Girls)," and shortly after, accepted the trophy from her mom, Tina Knowles. Tons of huge names, from First Lady Michelle Obama to Barbara Streisand to Stevie Wonder, paid tribute to Beyonce as an artist and a "do-gooder." Other big winners of the night include Country star Taylor Swift, who took home two trophies, one for 200 Album Artist of the Year for her Speak Now album, and another for Country Artist of the Year. 17-year-old Justin Bieber was a triple winner for Digital Artist of the Year, Top New Artist and Fan Favorite.
