It is the first time the award show will air on a network. This year it’s held in MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.
Billboard Music Awards nominees are based on key interactions with music fans, as well as album and digital song sales, radio airplay, streaming, touring and social engagement, tracked by Billboard and its data partners, including Nielsen Music and Next Big Sound. The finalists and award winners are determined using data reflecting a 12-month tracking period. Since 1940, the Billboard charts have been the go-to guide for ranking the popularity of artists, songs and albums, and are the ultimate measure of success in music.
Tickets for the “2018 Billboard Music Awards” will go on sale to the public on Thursday, April 12th. To purchase tickets online, fans should go to www.axs.com.
The three-hour telecast will feature this year’s hottest musical acts, biggest performances, unexpected collaborations and buzzworthy pop culture moments.
