Billboard Music Awards Pay Tribute to the Late Eddie Van Halen

During the 2020 Billboard Music Awards on Wednesday (Oct. 14) night, Kelly Clarkson took a moment to name a few of the trailblazing musicians we’ve lost over the last year, from Juice WRLD to Little Richard. Clarkson also gave special mention to a recently deceased rock icon, Eddie Van Halen. “A true giant was taken from us,” she said of the late Van Halen guitarist. “He was a legendary guitarist, an amazing musician and an incredible songwriter.”

In tribute to EVH, the 2020 BBMAs aired one of Van Halen’s rare TV awards show performances, a clip from the 2015 Billboard Music Awards featuring Van Halen ripping through their No. 13 Hot 100 hit “Panama” in Las Vegas. Though David Lee Roth and Eddie Van Halen were all smiles in the joyous clip, it took on a bittersweet tone in the wake of his loss.

The 2020 Billboard Music Awards is produced by dick clark productions, which is owned by MRC Entertainment, the parent company of Billboard.
