Musician The Weeknd dominated Sunday at the Billboard Music Awards, taking home 10 awards.

The Weeknd won awards for Top Artist, Top Hot 100 Song, Top Male Artist, Top R&B Artist, Top R&B Male Artist, Top R&B Album, Top R&B Song, Top Radio Songs Artist, Top Radio Song and Top Hot 100 Artist.

The sweep at the Billboard Music Awards comes after The Weeknd was shut out of the Grammys despite having a hugely successful album, “After Hours.” He also had the most-streamed single of the year with “Blinding Lights.” (RELATED: The Weeknd, Nicki Minaj And Other Musicians Slam The Grammys For Being ‘Corrupt’)

The Weeknd revealed he would not submit music to the Grammys even after the recent rule change that eliminated the “secret” nomination-review committees, Variety reported.

“The trust has been broken for so long between the Grammy organization and artists that it would be unwise to raise a victory flag,” The Weeknd told Variety.

“I think the industry and public alike need to see the transparent system truly at play for the win to be celebrated, but it’s an important start,” he continued. “I remain uninterested in being a part of the Grammys, especially with their own admission of corruption for all these decades. I will not be submitting in the future.”
