    Maybe the Billboard Music Awards should be renamed the PDA Awards?

    With some major making out onstage by Rihanna and Britney Spears and a sweet smack between Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez, you could have almost forgotten that Sunday's Billboard Music Awards in Las Vegas were really about naming Eminem Artist of the Year (along with Top Album and Top Rap Album), Taylor Swift the Top Country Artist and Album Artist and the Biebs the New Artist of the Year (along with Digital Artist and Fan Favorite).

    And they weren't the only ones gettting our attention during the show…

    Hangover star Ken Jeong kicked off the affair with a song and dance with Nicki Minaj, but it was no match for Brit and Ri-Ri's "S&M" pole-dancing performance in dominatrix gear…which offered them the opportunity to seal the number with a kiss just the way Britney and Madonna did back in the day.

    Then, it was Justin Bieber's turn to share the love, when he later followed suit and planted a wet one on Selena Gomez after he won Top New Artist.

    Not to be left behind, Beyoncé, who rocked the stage with a fierce performance of "Run the World (Girls)," took home the Millennium Award and thanked her hubby, Jay-Z.

    "This is a moment I have to soak in because it's gonna be—and it is—one of the best moments of my life," Beyonce said upon accepting the award. "I don't want to put you on the spot because I know they're probably putting the camera in your face right now, but I love me some Jay-Z."
