The annual Billboard Music Awards featured a bevy of left-wing pop stars who used their moment in the spotlight during Wednesday’s NBC broadcast to fire off political messages, with Demi Lovato crooning an anti-Trump number while encouraging viewers to vote and pop star Lizzo urging fans to turn out and “vote” on November 3.
