And only half of those viewers were Bieblievers who are currently Twitter ranting in a rage for The Biebs' big smooch with Selena Gomez! HA!
Last night's Billboard Music Awards, was the most watched telecast since 2003, drawing in almost 7.9 million total viewers. The show's been off the air since 2006, when the ratings were subpar to say the least, but seeing as the show actually beat out the season finale of Celebrity Apprentice, we can almost guarantee it will be back again next year!
Of course, Marlee Matlin and John Rich are no match for Britney Spears and Beyonce! Then again, who on Earth really is???
Speaking of Bey, let's watch her EPIC performance again, shall we??? (above)
Ten times just isn't enough!!!
