If you were watching the show, there's a good chance you let out an "Aww!" as Toronto-born rapper Drake accepted the Artist of the Decade Award. He was accompanied by three-year-old son Adonis, who seemed a little shy of the crowd and clung to his dad for support as fans cheered Drizzy on. Adonis, who already has a huge passion for basketball like his dad, got a bit teary at one point, which is totally understandable since that was a lot of people and tons of noise!
Pink had her children, Willow and Jameson, with her on the red carpet earlier in the evening, and Willow performed with her before she accepted the Icon Award from Jon Bon Jovi. It was a lovely, breathtaking number from the duo, who ran through "Cover Me in Sunshine" by using ropes and aerial silks before ending with a huge hug.
To say The Weeknd had a massive night would be an understatement. While the man born Abel Tesfaye didn't win all the awards for which he was nominated, he was still able to pose backstage with a veritable pile of them, which he can add to his growing collection of prizes throughout his career. He's up for six JUNOs next month!
