What's a music event without live performances, right? These seven performances kept everyone's spirits up during the 2015 Billboard Music Awards earlier today in Las Vegas. We just can't get enough of them that we decided to round them up for you in case you missed them earlier, or you want to relive their performances.

 1  Hozier

The Irish musician sang his famous folk hit "Take Me To Church" for the #BBMAs crowd earlier today. While he didn't have Annie Lennox to keep him company onstage, Hozier proved he can sing it with authority like he's always done. Don't you wish we get to watch him live soon? Ugh, we're definitely hoping for this one.

 2  Imagine Dragons

As tribute to the late Ben E. King, the rock band sang the musician's 1961 hit "Stand By Me." It was a heartwarming and heartbreaking performance all at the same time.

 3  Ed Sheeran 

How can we forget to mention one of our favorite singers? Ed passionately sang "Bloodstream" for the crowd onstage where he was only accompanied by his guitar.

 4  Nick Jonas 

Thought Nick couldn't get any cuter? You're totally wrong. Opening his performance of "Jealous" with an electric guitar solo, we ended up wishing Nick actually wrote this song down with us in mind. Lucky, lucky Olivia Culpo.

 5  Kelly Clarkson 

The first American Idol gave us a powerful performance of her song "Invincible" proving that her talent knows no expiration date. You go, Kelly!

 6  Wiz Khalifa 

It has been more than a year since Fast and Furious star Paul Walker died of car accident, but the void he's left can still be felt by his friends and fans from all over the world. For this hearwarming tribute, Wiz Khalifa teamed up with Lindsey Stirling and Charlie Puth to perform "See You Again."


 7  Iggy Azalea and Britney Spears 

For the first time ever, these two lovely musicians performed their latest song "Pretty Girls" live for the world to see. We can't help but have #Throwback feels after seeing Britney perform onstage.
