Even Britney Spears & Celine Dion Couldn't Save The Billboard Music Awards From Having The Worst Ratings In 4 Years!
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.
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.
Did U tune in for the BBMAs last night??

Madonna & Questlove Defend Her Billboard Music Awards Prince Tribute After BET Throws The Ultimate Shade!
Even if you're not her biggest fan, this is kind of harsh…
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:

Madonna & Stevie Wonder Perform A Powerful Purple Rain Tribute To Prince At The Billboard Music Awards!
After a poignant introduction by Questlove, Her Madgesty entered the Billboard Music Awards stage on a purple throne for an orchestra-backed performance of Nothing Compares 2 U.
But that wasn't all…
Stevie Wonder joined her to sing a duet of Purple Rain — to which the entire audience of Billboard-topping artists sang along!
Ch-ch-check out the momentous event (above)!
The iconic singer was perfection in purple for her tribute performances of Nothing Compares 2 U and Purple Rain during the Billboard Music Awards on Sunday night!
The Queen of pop rocked a purple jacquard suit with a ruffled, lace blouse in his honor, and we don't think she could have worn it any better.
Of course, the 57-year-old has worn something similar, but hey, she still looked good!
P.S. Heyyyyy to Stevie Wonder — always a distinguished gentleman!
