LOS ANGELES (CelebrityAccess) — Some of the biggest names in pop and country were on hand at the Dolby Theater in Hollywood for the 2018 Radio Disney Music Awards.

It was a big night for Korean k-pop group BTS, who swept all of the categories they were nominated for, including the awards Best Group, Best Dance Track and Fiercest Fans.

Shawn Mendes took home the prize for Best Artist, besting the likes of Bruno Mars, Ed Sheeran, Selena Gomez, and Taylor Swift.

Camila Cabello took top honors for Song of the Year, as well as picking up the trophy for Breakout Artist for 2015.

Pop star Janet Jackson was presented with the first ever Impact Award, which recognizes an artist as one of the most influential forces in pop music.

“It’s beautiful and its humbling to be recognized as someone who’s had a positive impact, but if I’ve been fortunate enough to impact others, it’s only because I myself have been greatly impacted by positive people in my life,” she told the audience after a standing ovation.
