The Billboard Music Awards are an annual award given out by Billboard, a music industry journal that also publishes a music popularity chart. With the exception of the years 2007 through 2010, the Billboard Music Awards have been held yearly since 1990. The event was previously held in December.

Unlike other awards, such as the Grammy, which nominates artists based on the National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences’ highest vote totals, the Billboard Music Awards finalists are chosen based on album and digital song sales, streaming, radio airplay, touring, and social engagement.

The organizers of the annual Billboard Music Awards (BBMA), which recognize the year’s most successful musicians in 62 categories across all genres of music, have finally released the complete list of nominees for this year’s edition.

The BBMAs will be televised live on NBC and streamed live on Peacock on Sunday, May 15 at 8 p.m. ET / 5 p.m. PT from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.
