The Billboard Music Awards is held annually, featuring notorious talent of all genres. Based on fan engagement with their music, tracked by Billboard and partners including Nielsen Music and Next Big Sound, this year’s Billboard Music Awards will be hosted by Kelly Clarkson and Dan + Shay, and will be airing live at 8:00pm ET on NBC from the MGM Garden Arena in Las Vegas on May 1st.
