The 2012 Billboard Music Awards were given out live in Vegas yesterday night, hosted by the Modern Family couple Ty Burrell and Julie Bowen, and the night was certainly a tribute to some great acts.

So which of your favorites won? Shakira took home the award for “Top Latin Artist”, while the award for “Top Latin Album” went to Romeo Santos for his album Formula: Vol. 1. Don Omar and Lucenzo won “Top Latin Song” for “Danza Kuduro” and “Top Radio Song” went to Pitbull featuring Ne-Yo, Afrojack and Nayer for “Give Me Everything.” (Honestly, who can resist Pitbull?)

During the awards show, tributes were paid to those music icons who had passed, including Robin Gibb of the Bee Gees, Adam Yauch aka MCA of the Beastie Boys, Donna Summer and Whitney Houston, who won the Millennium Award.

Stevie Wonder was awarded a once-in-a-generation Icon Award.
