Rihanna and Britney Kiss on Stage at 2011 Billboard Music Awards--Full Winners List

Eminem and Justin Bieber cleaned house last night at the 2011 Billboard Music Awards in Las Vegas, each taking home 6 trophies. Eminem was absent, but Justin Bieber, who showed up with girlfriend Selena Gomez was more than thrilled to accept his awards on stage.

Rihanna and Britney Spears opened the big show, and surprised the audience with a big on stage kiss. Brit was dressed in white, while Rihanna was wearing a similar bondage style outfit in black—think Madonna 2003 MTV Awards.

It was the first performance of the night for Brit, who later returned to the stage to perform a duet with rapper Nicki Minaj.

Also taking home prizes were Katy Perry - who won Top Digital Songs Artist and Lady Gaga, who won a trio of prizes, and British singer Taio Cruz whose track Dynamite won two awards.
