After being postponed six months, Kelly Clarkson took on hosting duties for the third consecutive year and guided viewers through some pretty iconic moments.
RADIO.COM’s Katie Neal is here to get you caught up on those unforgettable moments. And don’t forget to check out the complete winners list from last night.

Cher Presents the Icon Award to Garth Brooks
There's not better example of game recognizing game. Cher presented Garth Brooks with the "Billboard Icon Award," while sporting a stunning black dress. Garth then went on to play all his 1990's bangers we absolutely love.
