Drake had one heck of a night at the BBMAs, from finally clearing the air with Ludacris over their previous “Supa Dupa Flow” flap, to winning over twelve awards, including Top 200 Artist, but the highlight was — of course — his performance, where he rapped “Gyalchester” in the middle of the freaking Bellagio fountain, surrounded by fireworks and water spouts as he danced more energetically than he has since his ACL injury in 2009.

This was Drake’s first television performance since the release of both Views and More Life, and he promised “something special” to mark the occasion. While only the court of public opinion can determine whether he delivered, his eight years on the Billboard charts have more than earned him his spot at the awards show.
