Billboard Music Awards Red Carpet: Kelly Rowland, Nicki Minaj, Chris Brown & More (PHOTOS)

It was definitely a big night at the 2013 Billboard Music Awards--from jaw-dropping performances to equally attention-grabbing red carpet looks.

Kelly Rowland didn't disappoint in a high-slit silver number by Rami Al Ali. The Destiny's Child singer knows how to vamp it up. We also loved her simple ponytail 'do courtesy of hairstylist Tippi Shorter.

Nicki Minaj looked pretty normal (thank goodness) in a flowy red gown. However, the outspoken rapper slipped into a decidedly more revealing ensemble--ripped skin-tight leggings and a bustier--for her performance of "High School" with Lil Wayne.

Chris Brown was also on hand for the annual awards show and took a more casual route when dressing for the evening. The 24-year-old singer stepped out in a black/white/gray sweater, black jeans and sneakers. Hey, not every red carpet requires a suit and tie.

Here's a look at those stars and make sure to flip through the slideshow below for a look at all the stars at the 2013 Billboard Music Awards.
