Timberlake, Imagine Dragons top winners at Billboard Awards
2014 Billboard Music Awards
Justin Timberlake, hometown rockers Imagine Dragons and Robin Thicke were big winners at the Billboard Music Awards on Sunday in Las Vegas where a computer-generated Michael Jackson danced and sang a newly released song.

The annual televised awards show, a main showcase for the music industry, honored Timberlake seven times, including top artist, top male artist and top Billboard 200 album for last year's "The 20/20 Experience."

Timberlake, 33, who is on tour in Europe, accepted the awards in taped speeches with his touring band that numbers about 20 strong.

"It's not a competition, but if it was, I won. And guess what? I'm OK with that," Timberlake said in a good-natured joke aimed at his competition, singers Miley Cyrus, Bruno Mars, Katy Perry and rockers Imagine Dragons.

The late King of Pop Michael Jackson made an appearance as a hologram, performing his posthumously released song "Slave to the Rhythm" with a slew of dancers moving around his computer-generated image.

The performance prompted an emotional standing ovation with some audience members shown wiping away tears.
