Because there are so many categories for tonight's Billboard Music Awards, the bulk of the winners will not be announced on the air. Instead, they were announced earlier today, and so far, Drake is the big winner: he has already won 10 awards of of a possible 22.

Other big winners so far include Beyonce, who has five, Twenty One Pilots with four and The Chainsmokers with three.
There are plenty more awards to be given out tonight, including Artist of the Year, so tune…
