The 2015 Billboard Music Awards could easily be considered Taylor Swift Night, as she not only premiered her star-studded music video for “Bad Blood,” but also took home eight trophies, including Top Female Artist. One category she didn’t win, though, was Top Hot 100 Song, which went to Meghan Trainor’s hit “All About That Bass.”

One Direction, Iggy Azalea and Sam Smith were among the night’s other winners. See the full list below:
