The Shark Tank star and billionaire owner of the Dallas Mavericks was recently courted by Republicans from the “Never Trump” movement to launch a third-party presidential bid, prompting co-presenter Miss America winner Betty Cantrell to ask whether he would announce his campaign that night. Cuban chuckled and teased, “Today I am here to announce… this next category.”

The trio of actresses drew laughs by joking that they weren’t actually bad moms because their kids were being watched backstage by Fetty Wap and hanging at Las Vegas strip club Spearmint Rhino.

2. Steven Tyler

“What a crowd, what a mob, what a show!” exclaimed Tyler at the onset of his presentation speech. Draped in layered necklaces with a mustache and thick-rimmed glasses, Aerosmith’s ever-colorful frontman — who’s been trying on a country-music career for size — donned animated expressions while recounting the past winners of the prized Top Artist award before announcing Adele as this year’s winner.

After being surprised by her son’s presentation of her Billboard Icon Award, a tearful Celine Dion asked her teenage son Rene-Charles if he could simply stand next to her. He was more than happy to oblige, comforting his mother in a touching gesture. It was especially heartwarming because Dion had weathered the loss of her husband and brother in the span of three days in January.
