Host KELLY CLARKSON started off the "Billboard Music Awards" with an emotional speech about the shooting at Santa Fe High School in Texas.
She said they wanted her to do a moment of silence, but she wasn't interested in that. Quote, "I'm so sick of moments of silence, it's not working, obviously. Why don't we do a moment of action? Why don't we do a moment of change? Why don't we change what's happening? Because it's horrible."
Later in the show, SHAWN MENDES and KHALID honored the victims by performing "Youth", along with a choir of survivors from the Parkland, Florida shooting.
