Drake’s son Adonis made a surprise appearance at yesterday’s Billboard Music Awards, joining his father onstage as he won an artist of the decade prize.

The rapper gripped his son’s shoulder throughout his speech, before hoisting him into the air and dedicating the award to him.

The three year old burst into tears, and left the stage clinging to his father’s leg.

Meanwhile, The Weeknd was the night’s big winner, taking home 10 awards.

Among his prizes were best artist; top Hot 100 album for After Hours; and top Hot 100 song for Blinding Lights.

Korean pop band BTS also picked up four prizes, winning best group for the second time in three years; and top social artist for the fifth consecutive year.

The band are now just one year short of equalling Justin Bieber’s six-year hold on the social award from 2011- 2016.

Pop Smoke, who died in February 2020 at the age of 20, won five prizes, including top new artist and top Billboard Hot 200 album, for he posthumously-released Shoot for the Stars, Aim for the Moon.

His mother Audrey Jackson gave an emotional speech as she collected the latter award on his behalf.
