Twitter was at an all-time trolling level tonight. Shortly after Miguel leg dropped 2 fans during his performance at the Billboard Music Awards (accidentally, and they're OK), photoshopped MEMEs of Miguel immediately graced the interwebs. I feel like we're seriously advancing as a society by how quick GIFs, MEMEs, and now Vines of these quick, attention-grabbing events are created and go viral on the web and social media.
After Miguel kicked off the Sunday night fun, the "DaDa Drake Pose" from this "No New Friends" photo last week took over. And at posting time, my Instagram is filled with plenty of variations in addition to the ones above. Plus, Drake and Miguel are both trending on Twitter. Let's just say the internet knows how to have fun, and is a very unforgiving place. Hah! I should note that I share this out of genuine fun and laughter — another installment of Funny Moments of Hip Hop, if you will. At the end of the day, I feel these things are just meant for chuckles and giggles and hope that we all don't take it beyond that. Because at the end of the day as well, Drake and Miguel are two amazing artists.

Tonight is the Billboard Music Awards and Miguel gets the lead with his performance of the amazing "Adorn", which will unintentionally (and hilariously) stand out for his flying leg drop that hit two fans. This clip was made for Vine.
Fortunately, she's ok — holding merely an ice pack in a backstage interview with Miguel after the performance (which was one of his most creative ones yet for "Adorn", oh by the way).
And per usual: the interwebs get the W in near-record time...
Down below: everyone wishes they were Lil Wayne tonight. He even says it himself as he's "the luckiest guy in the world right now" after a performance with Nicki Minaj for "High School" turned into a lap dance with Nicki Minaj.

Also, Chris Brown expectedly channels his MJ for a song and dance performance of "Fine China"; really diggin' this one — the dance moves are crazy, the guitarist brought the chords to another level, and the stage fighting tied back into the music video and was well-executed here. Real nice ending to this performance (although I should add his singing was off-key at times, which can partly be attributed to all the dancing).
Lastly, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis take the stage for "Thrift Shop", and Bruno Mars and his ensemble don some red Michael Jackson jackets for "Treasure". Enjoy!

More performers included Justin Bieber, Selena Gomez, Pitbull & Christina Aguilera. For those videos and more, head on over to Yardie's spot.
“Beautiful” will be made for purchase on iTunes worldwide at 8am ET on May 6th. The song will serve as Mariah’s lead single from her highly anticipated studio album, which is looking like a top of the summer release. Mariah is also confirmed for Good Morning America’s concert series, which will kick off with her May 24th.
One can only imagine till Monday the amount of VOCALS Mariah and Miguel will be serving on this track! Can Miguel go toe to toe with the 5-octave singer? I think he can most certainly handle his own. Check the teaser below if you haven’t seen it yet.
