"And it. Was dope," she tweeted of the experience.

Teigen had shared videos on Snapchat of herself and a group of girlfriends heading to Magic Mike Live. She said earlier that she was spending time with family, but would catch the Billboard Music Awards on TV.

"My sister and niece live in Vegas. I'm hanging out with them and not trying to force my back into a dress. but watching #bbmas!" she wrote.

Legend and country duo Florida Georgia Line performed a mashup of their songs "Surefire" and "H.O.L.Y." at the ceremony. Florida Georgia Line singer Tyler Hubbard praised Legend on the red carpet prior to the show.

"It's a little mash-up that's big for us. He is one of our heroes, and somebody we look up to," Hubbard told E! News.
