All the action recap from the 2014 Billboard awards held in Las Vegas, a few hours ago!

It was hot legs, an iconic hologram (more on it inside) and even hotter onstage performances at the recently concluded Billboard awards, which was held at the MGM Grand Arena in Las Vegas.

Jennifer Lopez, who won the Icon award, was the show stealer of the night with two performances -- first with rapper Pitbull to present the new FIFA anthem song and then she performed a new single from her latest album.

But before all that unravelled, the Latina turned heads on the red carpet in her signature style -- a deep red sheer gown with a plunging neckline and a thigh-high slit.

Rapper Wiz Khalifa and his model wife Amber Rose were, by far, the most intriguing looking couple on the red carpet.

Brownie points for those oversized shades that, oddly enough, are strongly reminiscent of sunnies popularised by rapper Kanye West, who Rose used to date until a few years ago.
