Say what you want about Britney Spears and Rihanna, but these ladies know how to command attention. They wowed the crowd during their opening number with coordinating black and white futuristic S&M outfits.

Pro: Ke$ha did not show up to the Billboard Music Awards in an outfit made out of a garbage bag like she did at the VMAs. Con: She showed up wearing this.

Kelly Rowland, who recently became the newest judge on the British version of The X Factor, is nailing it in a hot pink bandage dress and matching bubble gum pink lipstick.

Kelly Rowland's former Destiny's Child bandmate Michelle Williams, on the other hand, looks like she picked her dress based on her post-show events, which appear to be a funeral and ice dancing competition.

Australian pop icon Kylie Minogue puts a daring twist on her funereal garb (it's an award show in Vegas, ladies; what's with all the black?) with lace flowers and a sheer skirt.

Nicole Kidman also looks ready for a much more somber occasion than the Billboard Awards--where her husband Keith Urban performed-- in her floor-length beaded black dress. It is great to see her trying a new braided hairstyle, though.

Fergie completes the black dress trend with her futuristic leather number and fierce smoky eyes that would be perfect for a party in The Matrix. Yes, we totally just referenced The Matrix.

Finally, a break from all the black! Keri Hilson looks ready for summer fun in a '70s-style yellow minidress that she styled perfectly with a turquoise belt and frosted eyeshadow.

There's not really anything wrong with Taylor Swift's Billboard Awards outfit. Her normally curly hair looks fab with its loose, glamorous waves. Nevertheless, it'd be nice for the singer to try something more fun and less black tie for a Vegas red carpet. Also: Someone please get this girl another lipstick color!

Selena Gomez looks absolutely stunning in a long black dress with cutouts and a slit in the front. She complements the dress with a sexy, sleek hairstyle and strappy red heels.

We're admitted fans of rapper Nicki Minaj, but even we draw the line at noticeable roots and mint green bodysuits that do Minaj's voluptuous figure no favors.

We never thought Beyonce would be able to top "Single Ladies," but her latest music video for "Girls (We Run This)" comes pretty close. It doesn't hurt that her performance at the Billboards was prefaced with video messages from the likes of Michelle Obama and Lady Gaga. This outfit is just the icing on the cake. Only Sasha Fierce could pull off this number.

Mary J. Blige can get away with pretty much anything, and the black side panels on her leopard print gown do make the dress extremely figure-flattering. However, we've never been huge fans of head to toe animal print, so we'll leave the judgment on Ms. Blige's jungle number up to you.

What's this? Rihanna at an award show in a non-see-through outfit? We're loving the Barbadian babe's cute bob and crisp white suit that has a hint of sex appeal thanks to its daringly open shirt .

They've never really acknowledged their relationship before, but between the kisses they exchanged when Justin Bieber won his multiple Billboard Awards and her wandering right hand in this photo, we suggest Selena Gomez sleep with one eye open from now on. Those Beliebers can be scary.
