On Sunday May 20, Las Vegas played host to the 2018 Billboard Music Awards. As expected, it was a celebrity-packed affair with plenty of performances, lavish outfits, and of course, top awards for the best musical acts of the past year. While we enjoyed all the fanfare and awesome music, we did keep our eyes on wrists to see what kind of luxury watches all the celebs were rocking. Naturally, we caught a handful of Rolex watches. Read on to see what Rolex watches we spotted at the 2018 Billboard Music Awards.
DJ Khaled’s Rolex Watch
Nominated for two Billboard Music 2018 awards for Best Rap Song and Best R&B Song, DJ Khaled also took the stage with Jennifer Lopez during the show to perform their latest single Dinero.
While on stage, we couldn’t help but notice DJ Khaled’s iced out Rolex watch on his wrist. DJ Khaled isn’t shy about declaring his love for luxury watches, particularly Rolex timepieces. He’s known for lavishly gifting Rolex watches to his colleagues and family. This includes buying his one-year-old son a yellow gold Rolex Day-Date President earlier this month! The multi-award winning record producer even shared the video of his kid’s new watch on his Instagram page.
Andy Cohen’s Rolex Watch
Radio and TV host, author, and producer Andy Cohen is famously known as the powerhouse executive behind the Real Housewives reality television franchise.
A presenter for the evening, Andy Cohen attended the Billboard Music Awards wearing a bright pink suit and on his wrist he wore his faithful platinum Rolex President watch. Andy Cohen’s platinum Day-Date comes with the familiar ice-blue dial, a color exclusively reserved for Rolex platinum watches.
Nick Jonas’s Rolex Watch
Nick Jonas rose to fame as one third of the Jonas Brothers band alongside his siblings Joe and Kevin. These days however the young singer-songwriter is enjoying his successful solo career. The Dallas native is evidently a watch enthusiast too as we’ve seen him wearing some Richard Mille watches, a two-tone Submariner, a steel Datejust II, and a custom black PVD Rolex Explorer II.
However, for his presenter duties during the 2018 Billboard Music Awards, Nick Jonas choose to wear a solid 18k yellow gold GMT-Master II with a black dial and black Cerachrom ceramic bezel. A perfect watch for Las Vegas!
Bruno Mars’ Rolex Watch
For the show, the multi-talented superstar entertainer Bruno Mars was tasked to present Janet Jackson with the Billboard Music Awards Icon award. Visibly grateful to so do, Bruno Mars even got down on one knee to give her the coveted honor.
On his wrist, we saw Bruno Mars’ yellow gold Day-Date President—a Rolex model he clearly loves as we’ve seen similar Rolex Presidential watches with different dial colors in the past. A suitable luxury watch indeed for man who titled his album 24K Magic.
Ed Sheeran’s Rolex Watches
Although he wasn’t there since he was in Dublin, Ireland, the big winner of the night was Ed Sheeran. He took home a slew of awards including Billboard’s Top Artist. We wanted to give Ed Sheeran a brief mention here because he is a notable celebrity watch collector with loads of watches from Richard Mille, Audemars Piguet, Patek Philippe, and Rolex.
We’ve seen the singer sporting a vintage Rolex Daytona Paul Newman. Also, we noted an ultra-modern Rolex Yacht-Master 40 in Everose gold with the black Oysterflex bracelet.
Congratulations to all the performers, presenters, and winners at the Billboard Awards for putting on an entertaining show!
