The Billboard Music Awards are honors given out annually by Billboard, a publication covering the music business and a music popularity chart. The Billboard Music Awards show has been held annually since 1990, with the exception of the years 2007 through 2010. The event was formerly staged in December but since returning in 2011, it has been held in May.
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 album and digital songs sales, streaming, radio airplay, touring, and social engagement. These measurements are tracked year-round by Billboard and its data partners, including MRC Data and Next Big Sound. The 2018 awards were based on the reporting period of April 8, 2017 through March 31, 2018. Awards are given for the top album, artist and single in a number of different music genres.
On February 17, 2011, Billboard announced that it would bring the BMAs back to television, moving from its original home on Fox to its new network, ABC, on May 22, 2011. A new award statuette was created by New York firm Society Awards. Dick Clark Productions, which is co-owned with Billboard, began producing the ceremony in 2014. On November 28, 2017, it was announced that the Billboard Music Awards would be moving from ABC to NBC beginning in 2018 under a multi-year contract.
Billboard is a long-running American periodical covering the entertainment industry. In recent years, it primarily has covered the music industry, but it covered other areas in the past. (There is a Wikipedia article about this serial.)
Billboard began in 1894 as "Billboard Advertising" (and covered the bill-posting industry originally). The name shortened to "The Billboard" in 1897, as the magazine was shifting to covering entertainment. Later the name shortened further to "Billboard". The first copyright-renewed issue is October 7, 1939 (v. 51 no. 40). We know of no actively copyright-renewed contributions. (More details) It is still published today.
Below are the Billboard Hot 100 number one hits of 1979. There were countless great tunes that did not make it to number one that year: "The Devil Went Down to Georgia" (Granny, does your dog bite? No child, No), "The Sultans of Swing" (They don't give a damn 'bout any trumpet playing band), "Dance the Night Away" (Yes, It's love in the third degree), the live version of "I Want You To Want Me" recorded in Budokan (Didn't I, didn't I, didn't I see you cryin), "Don't Bring Me Down" (Bruce!).
Carey broke from the mold by releasing original holiday music, since most artists at the time chose to cover Christmas standards, Gary Trust, Billboard's senior director of charts, told NPR last winter. And that gamble paid off (literally: The Economist reported in 2017 that Carey had earned over $60 million in royalties since its release).
Adele Tops Billboard 200 For 13th WeekGRAMMY winner Adele's 21 has topped the Billboard 200 for the 13th week, marking the longest weekly stretch for an album atop the chart since the Titanic soundtrack spent 16 weeks at No. 1 in 1998.

Brown's 1965 classic, "Papa's Got a Brand New Bag," became one of the first funk hits, and has been endlessly sampled and covered over the years, along with his other groovy tracks. Of course, many other funk acts followed in the '60s, and the genre thrived in the '70s and '80s as the disco craze came and went, and the originators of hip-hop and house music created new music from funk and disco's strong, flexible bones built for dancing.
With punk going so mega in England, we definitely got a leg up. We still had a lot of work to get where we got to, and rightly so because you find out that you need to do that. A lot of groups in the old days would be together three to five years before they ever made a record, and that time is really important. In a way, what was great about punk rock for me was it was very much a learning period. I really learned a lot [about] recording music and being in a group and even writing songs.
Silverman said he welcomed another competitor to marketplace, noting that after atheists bought a billboard two years ago in Times Square that read "You KNOW it's a myth," the Catholic League purchased competing space at the entrance to the Lincoln Tunnel for a sign that read "You KNOW it's true."
