Billboard Music Awards 2016

May 22, 2016 @ 5:00 pm



The Billboard Music Award is an honor given by Billboard, a publication and music popularity chart covering the music business, and is hosted this year by hosts Ludacris and Ciara.  Unlike other awards, such as the Grammy Award, which determine nominations as a result of the highest votes received by the National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences, the Billboard Music Awards finalists are based on United States year-end chart performance according to Nielsen data for sales, number of downloads and total airplay. Awards were given for the top album/artist/single in different genres. Since 1992, the awards also give out a Billboard Century Award—the magazine’s highest honor for creative achievement.

The nominees were announced on April 11, 2016, with The Weeknd earning the most nominations with twenty.  Britney Spears received the Billboard Millennium Award. Celine Dion received the Billboard Icon Award in recognition of her career spanning over three decades.  Madonna made an appearance to pay tribute to Prince.  Adele premiered the music video for her single “Send My Love (To Your New Lover)” at the ceremony.  The Weeknd won the most awards on the night with eight, followed by Adele with five, who won Top Artist.
