Taylor Swift dominates Billboard music awards

Pop star Taylor Swift has swept the board at the Billboard music awards, winning eight of the 14 categories in which she was nominated.

Among her prizes were best female artist, best streaming song for Shake It Off and the ceremony's top honour, artist of the year.

British star Sam Smith won best new artist - and accepted his trophy using flash cards after having vocal surgery.

But Kanye West was booed as he closed the show with a medley of hits.

Audience members jeered as the rapper's sisters-in-law, Kendall and Kylie Jenner, introduced his set; and the booing continued during his performance.
