Panic! At The Disco took home the award for Top Rock Song for “High Hopes” at the 2019 Billboard Music Award.

They were up against two Imagine Dragons songs, a Foster The People track and one song by lovelytheband.

It was the first BBMAs win for the group. Frontman Brendon Urie accepted the award, and gave an impromptu speech.

“I kind of feel like a jerk because I didn’t think I was going to win” Urie said. “Shoutout to my mom and dad who are standing right over there. What’s up guys? I have to do it — ’look ma, I made it.’”

It was a fitting statement considering the band had just finished performing “Hey Look Ma, I Made It” live on the Billboard stage for the first time. You can check out a video of that below.

Urie performed twice that night as he opened the awards show with Taylor Swift for the live debut of their collab “ME!”

Urie literally floated in on an umbrella in the performance. You can check out a video of that below.

Earlier today, the pair shared a vertical music video for the song which featured them rehearsing for the big performance. As far as the first music video for the song, the duo absolutely shattered all records.

The band is also up for four awards tonight. You can check out the full list of BBMAs winners here.
