The Billboard Music Award is an honor given by Billboard, a publication and music popularity chart covering the music business. The Billboard Music Awards show had been held annually since 1990 in December until it went dormant in 2006. The awards returned in 2011 and is held annually in May.

The 2017 Billboard Music Awards aired live on ABC in May 21.

Background

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 Nielsen Music and Next Big Sound. The 2017 awards were based on the reporting period of March 18, 2016 through March 16, 2017. Awards are given for the top album/artist/single in different genres.

The record for most Billboard Music Awards won is held by Taylor Swift with 21 wins.
