The Michael Jackson Hologram Performed at the "Billboard Music Awards" Last Night
As expected, MICHAEL JACKSON performed last night at the "Billboard Music Awards" . . . in HOLOGRAM form. He "sang" his "new" song "Slave to the Rhythm", from his "new" album, "Xscape".
"He" also danced a precisely-choreographed routine with 16 live dancers that was pretty impressive no matter how you feel about this hologram business. Cameras even caught a few women in the audience CRYING.
The other "highlight" of the show was KENDALL JENNER introducing the band 5 SECONDS OF SUMMER . . . and totally BOTCHING IT.
Like the total NON-PRO she is, instead of soldiering past her screw-up, she basically stopped everything to inform America, quote, "Guys, I'm the worst reader."
She later Tweeted, quote, "Anndddd as if I wasn't nervous already!!! #NeverLeavinMyContactsAtHomeAgain! #LOL #LessonLearned."
Meanwhile, MILEY CYRUS performed "Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds" with the FLAMING LIPS . . . but it was via satellite, since she's on tour. KATY PERRY did the same for her song "Birthday".
ROBIN THICKE made TWO plays for his estranged wife PAULA PATTON. While accepting the award for Top R&B Song, he said, quote, "I'd like to thank my wife for her love and support and for putting up with me for all these years."
He also sang his new song, "Get Her Back".
As for the actual awards, JUSTIN TIMBERLAKE was the big winner, with SEVEN trophies. He wasn't there because he's on tour, but he accepted some awards via satellite.
And in one of his speeches he had a CLASSIC line . . . quote, "It's not a competition, but if it was, I won. And I'm okay with that." He also thanked everyone in the world EXCEPT DONALD STERLING.
Imagine Dragons won five awards, followed by Pharrell, Robin Thicke and T.I., who took home four each.
North West May Have Been Conceived in Florence, Italy . . . But We Still Don't Know Where Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are Getting Married
In an interview with an Italian newspaper, KANYE WEST calls Florence one of the most beautiful cities in the world. And he reveals that he may have a very personal connection to it.
He says, quote, "I love Florence, I love Italy and the Italian lifestyle. And I think we conceived our daughter North here, among the masterpieces of the Renaissance. It was our first honeymoon.
"It is one of the most beautiful cities in the world . . . for me the most beautiful in Europe."
These comments are bolstering rumors that Kanye and KIM KARDASHIAN will get married this weekend in Florence. A city official even claims the ceremony will take place at a 16th Century landmark called Forte di Belvedere, which translates to Belvedere Fort.
But several websites are sticking to the original story that it's going down in Paris.

Is Justin Bieber Cleaning Up His Act?
Could JUSTIN BIEBER be cleaning up his act? A so-called "source" says he has given up the SIZZURP. Apparently, he's become obsessed with working out, which is hard to do when you're high on cough syrup.
He's also been spending a lot more time with his mom and his manager Scooter Braun, as opposed to his usual crew of hangers-on.
