Red carpets are the perfect opportunity to sit back, relax, and enjoy looking at clothing that's weird, beautiful — and, well, often both. The Billboard Music Awards are no different. In fact, they usually are home to an extra fun and quirky red carpet — one where celebrities can experiment with looks that they usually wouldn't. This year, with fashion stars like Lorde and Cher performing, the red carpet outfits alone are enough to tune in for. The possibility of amazing performance outfits is just an added bonus if you ask me.
Whether you are a diehard red carpet fan, or you just like to tune in so you can follow along with the live tweeting (isn't that mostly what live events are about at this point, anyway?), the Billboards are a can't-miss red carpet. Plus, since they're pretty much always nominated more or less (as they should be, obviously), there's always the chance that Beyoncé or Rihanna will show up in a truly glorious get-up. Even if you're just tuning in to see who'll win, it's a good idea to check out all the looks from the night because whether you're interested in fashion or not, the Billboards red carpet is always interesting.
