Charting on Billboard’s Hot 100 or Top 200 is always a major milestone for musicians, no matter how long they’ve been around for. The Billboard Music Awards recognizes those achievements. Winners for most award shows are determined on fan or Academy votes. The BBMAs, however, are based on album and track sales, social media interaction, and streaming. The biggest artists from every genre come together to celebrate each other’s albums and songs while also recognizing the newest talent to binge-stream on Spotify.
Last year’s show was the first year it broadcast on NBC. In previous years it’s aired on FOX and ABC. Ed Sheeran and Kendrick Lamar tied for most awards at six each, while the both of them and Bruno Mars tied for most nominations at 15. This year, Cardi B holds the most nominations at 21. Taylor Swift, Panic! at the Disco, and the Jonas Brothers are just a few of the big artists who will be performing this year. The Voice coach Kelly Clarkson will be returning to host for the second year in a row. Tune in for one of the biggest nights in music.
