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.

The star, whose real name is Abel Tesfaye, more than doubled his career total of Billboard Music Awards, having previously received nine trophies.

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.
