We are live at the 2014 Billboard Music Awards at MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas at 5 p.m. PT.

Similarly, Las Vegas is home to Imagine Dragons, one of the night's top acts, nominated for a stack of awards.

And as we say that, "Night Visions" has spent 2 1/2 years on the Billboard Top 200 albums charts, and they just received Top Rock Album for "Night Visions."

Shania Twain, herself a Las Vegas type who performs up the Strip at the Colosseum in Caesars Palace, was the presenter.

Dan Reynolds, the band's frontman, can now return to taking selfies with fans in the sold-out arena. We are off.
