Karol G Ditches Bra and Wears Sheer Nude Mini Dress at 2023 Billboard Music Awards

Karol G raised eyebrows on Sunday night as she hit the red carpet at the 2023 Billboard Music Awards.

The Colombian hitmaker, 32, modeled a bizarre flesh-toned transparent mini dress that showed off her bare bust as she put on a truly eye-popping display. 

She teamed the outfit with nude heels. As for glam, the Grammy Award nominated singer opted for smokey eye makeup. 

Her platinum blonde locks were styled in a wet look as she struck poses at Line 204 in Los Angeles Рone of the multiple venues where the show was held this year. 

Karol kicked off the event, performing Qlona, Labios Mordidos, and Ojos Ferrari.

This year’s musical ceremony will be taking place at various locations, and the awards will forgo its usual television broadcast in place of a more disjointed ceremony that exists completely online.

Viewers can check out the awards ceremony in its entirety at Billboard’s website for it, BBMAs.watch, starting at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT.

But fans can also catch individual performances and acceptance speeches on Billboard’s social media accounts.

The show no longer has any television broadcast partner.

By downplaying a traditional ceremony, the new format will allow artists to hold performances across the globe.

Unlike other award shows, which have voters choosing winners based on quality and their subjective tastes, the BBMAs are ‘data driven’ and ‘chosen solely based on how well they perform on the Billboard charts, tracking album and digital song sales, radio airplay, as well as streaming and social engagement to choose the winner of each category,’ according to the publication.

Billboard also announced a partnership with Spotify to award ‘golden tickets’ to lucky fans to allow them to travel to the location of their chosen artist’s performance during the show.

In addition to Karol, other artists scheduled to sing their hits at the 2023 BBMAs include Mariah Carey, David Guetta, Bebe Rexha, NewJeans, Peso Pluma, Stray Kids and the controversial country artist Morgan Wallen.

The Billboard Music Awards will be expanding its reach this year with nine new awards.

Two of the major new awards include Hot 100 songwriter and top Hot 100 producer, with Taylor Swift being nominated in the former while her regular collaborator Jack Antonoff is nominated for the latter category.

Rock artists will also benefit with a new category for the top duo/group in the genre.

Four new categories are devoted to the massively popular K-pop genre: top global K-pop artist, top K-pop tour, top K-pop album and top global K-pop song.

Two others will honor the top Afrobeats artist and top Afrobeats song as the genre has seen a global surge in popularity.

Awards eligibility for the BBMAs was determined this year based on chart performance from November 19, 2022, through Oct. 21, 2023.
