Taio Cruz was the only Brit last night to win an award at the 2011 Billboard Music Awards held last night in Las Vegas.

His hit single Dynamite won the Hot 100 Song of the Year award, after staying at the top of the charts for 46 weeks.  During his acceptance speech Cruz said

This is the first time I have received an award and come up here to receive it. So I am very, very nervous right now. But, I would like to thank my manager, my record company, my label in the UK, my publisher, my friends and family and of course all of my fans. Thank you very much

He then went on to perform the hit single along with Break Your Heart
