Taylor Swift took home eight trophies at the 2015 Billboard Music Awards, including Top Female Artist, held in Las Vegas' MGM Grand Garden Arena last night, May 17 (U.S. time).

Taylor also premiered her star-studded music video for “Bad Blood.”

One Direction, Iggy Azalea, and Sam Smith were among the night’s other winners.

One Direction, who won Top Duo/Group, dedicated the award to their "brother" Zayn Malik.

Louis Tomlinson, Harry Styles, Liam Payne, and Niall Horan turned up to their first awards show as a four-piece, but showed there were no hard feelings towards the 22-year-old singer, who left the band in March, as they gave him a shout out during their acceptance speech.

Liam said: "There's one more person to share this with, and that's our brother Zayn."

During their speech, Niall also paid tribute to their devoted fans, saying: "This is absolutely incredible. It's an incredible honor to be here and to be in that category.

"It's unbelievable to come out as the winner, so we just want to say a big thank you to all of you who voted for it, we want to say a massive thank you to Billboard and again to our super, super fans.

"You've been absolutely amazing to us, we love you so much and we'll see you soon."

At the ceremony, 1D were also named Top Touring Artist and the boys were delighted to walk away with two gongs.
