Billboard Music Awards

The Billboard Music Awards, held annually in December, is one of four major music awards shows presented each year (the others being the American Music Awards, the Grammys, and the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony).

One of the "big three" major awards shows (the AMAs and the Grammys are the others), the BMAs have been held annually since 1989, and like the AMAs this awards show honors winners based on popularity--in this case, based on Billboard's year-end music charts, with awards for top selling album/artist/single in a particular genre.

Since its inception, the BMAs have been telecast live on the Fox network.
