Priyanka Chopra Jonas was one of the presenters at the Billboard Music Awards. Her husband and American singer Nick Jonas performed at the music awards ceremony and hosted along with his wife.
The couple, ahead of the night, posed for the photographers at the venue. The two also indulged in PDA. Priyanka and Nick shared a kiss and left fans swooning.
In a candid moment that Nickyanka shared backstage, Priyanka is seen hugging Nick. She wrote in the caption: “Husband appreciation post. Not even a cracked rib can stop this force of nature. So proud of you baby. With everything you do! Your work ethic, your pursuit of excellence! You inspire me everyday! Crushed it today! I love you so much (sic).”
Priyanka looked dazzling in a sparkly gold gown by Dolce & Gabbana, which featured blinding jewels, a plunging neckline and a thigh-high slit. She accessorized with an armour-like belt while Nick looked dashing in a green Fendi suit.
Earlier, a source close to the couple told Page Six: “Priyanka is coming to LA from working in London to help Nick with his injury and to give him support. They have limited time in LA together, so she wanted to be there to support him.”
Jonas recently got hospitalized following a severe road accident in which he cracked his rib.
Chopra shared the stage with Cynthia Erivo, Chelsea Handler, Dixie D’Amelio, Gabrielle Union, Henry Golding, Kathryn Hahn, Kelsea Ballerini, Lena Waithe, Leslie Odom, Jr., Lil Rel Howery, Padma Lakshmi, Renee Elise Goldsberry, Swizz Beatz, and Beyonce’s mother Tina Knowles-Lawson.
Meanwhile, The ‘Sucker’ hitmaker was tight-lipped about the specifics of the show in a recent interview but added that everyone involved will be working right up to airtime to put together what he hopes will be a memorable telecast.
“I can’t give away too many surprises. This is all about keeping the mystique alive. But we want to bring a great show to the fans, both as a host, the other performers and artists who’ll be there,” he said.
That includes Nick himself taking the stage with his brothers, Joe and Kevin Jonas, aka the Jonas Brothers, along with Marshmello, who released a single together, ‘Leave Before You Love Me’, on Thursday.
Other performers will include AJR, Alicia Keys, Bad Bunny, BTS, DJ Khaled ft. H.E.R. and Migos, Duran Duran, Glass Animals, Jimmy Jam & Terry Lewis with Sounds of Blackness featuring Ann Nesby, Karol G, The Weeknd and Twenty One Pilots.
