Shortly after 2012 Billboard Music Awards pulled its curtain, its full winner list were revealed. Although Adele was not given any award during its live telecast, she was actually the one who led the pack by grabbing a total of 12 gongs including the most coveted Top Artist.

Adele won seven other prizes in the artist awards category. She sealed her domination by taking home two gongs in album awards and song awards categories each, thanks to her ground-breaking album "21" and her hit single "Rolling in the Deep" respectively.

In the top category, Adele beat Lady GaGa, Lil Wayne, Katy Perry and Rihanna. Despite of getting the most prizes, the British pop sensation was a no-show at the event which took place at the MGM Grand Arena in Las Vegas on Sunday night, May 20.

Another artist who skipped the show was Lil Wayne. Weezy won Top Male Artist, pushing aside Justin Bieber, Chris Brown, Drake and Bruno Mars. Due to his absence, the award was accepted by presenter Gladys Knight on his behalf.

"And I'm so sorry that I wasn't there!!!" the Young Money rapper wrote an apology to his fans on Twitter soon after the show ended. "Very sorry! But I am truly grateful for everything. And honest to God,tears dropped. Love u all."

In addition to the Top Male Artist, the rap mogul received two other gongs for Top Rap Artist and Top Rap Album ("Tha Carter IV"). Kelly Rowland's single "Motivation", which features him, additionally won Top R&B Song.

Following Adele's domination was LMFAO. Redfoo and SkyBlu got seven awards, two of which were announced in the live telecast. They got the other five in Top Digital Song, Top Radio Song, Top Pop Song, Top Dance Song and Top Rap Song, all thanks to "Party Rock Anthem".

The other musicians who collected multiple kudos included Coldplay with four, and Lady GaGa, Casting Crowns as well as Jason Aldean with two each. Riri, Nicki Minaj, Beyonce Knowles, Shakira and Bieber, meanwhile, snatched one each.

In addition to those awards, Billboard handed Spotlight Award to Katy Perry, Woman of the Year to Taylor Swift, Millennium Award to Whitney Houston, and Billboard Music Icon Award to Stevie Wonder.
