It's official: no one watches award shows anymore!

While the Billboard Music Awards were certainly the talk of the town on Sunday night, it doesn't look like the rest of the country was that interested in the industry — or at least not watching on TV.

That's because despite crowd-pleasing performances from Britney Spears, Celine Dion, Madonna, and even The Go-Go's, the BBMAs actually pulled in their worst numbers in four years!

Apparently, only 8.9 million people tuned in to watch the 3-hour-long event, giving ABC a measly 2.9 rating in the 18-39 demo — that's only slightly better than 2012's 7.4M/2.7!

However, the network was able to beat out NBC's The Carmichael Show, CBS' Undercover Boss, and FOX's animation domination to win the night… but still, we're not impressed.

Maybe Ciara and Ludacris weren't as great hosts as we thought…

Did U tune in for the BBMAs last night??

What an emotional night.

Celine Dion pretty much won the Billboard Music Awards on Sunday thanks to her showstopping performance of Queen's The Show Must Go On.

Keke Palmer gets hate for makeup-free video.

Celebs can't win!

If they look too perfect, they're fake. And if they don't look perfect enough, they get dragged online.

Even if you're not her biggest fan, this is kind of harsh…

As you're probably aware, Madonna closed out the Billboard Music Awards on Sunday night with a touching tribute to Prince.

Queen Madge was joined onstage by Stevie Wonder to perform Nothing Compares 2 U and Purple Rain, and while the covers were quite beautiful, it seems as though a lot of the Internet was upset they weren't "Prince" enough.

However, things really took a dramatic turn shortly after the show, because the BET Awards straight up called Madonna out for doing a terrible job!

In fact, they promoted their very own Prince tribute while trashing the BBMAs on Twitter, posting:
