According to a report from Deadline, Wednesday (16/2/2022), the hosts and performers will be announced in the coming weeks.
Billboard Music Awards nominees and winners are based on music fan interactions, including streaming, digital album and song sales, radio play, and touring, as recorded on Billboard and MRC Data. Since 1940, the Billboard charts have been the primary guide for ranking the popularity of the music industry’s artists, songs, and albums.
The Billboard Music Awards are determined by a singer’s performance with their song and album on the chart.
At the 2021 BBMAs, The Weeknd dominated the event with 10 wins, including winning the Top Artist category.
Drake received the Artist of the Decade Award, while Pink received the ICON Award.
Rapper and activist Trae the Truth received the annual Change Maker Award.
Meanwhile, the K-Pop boy group BTS managed to take home all the awards from the nominations they got.
The group, which consists of RM, Jin, Suga, J-Hope, Jungkook, Jimin, and V, won the Top Song Sales Artist, Top Selling Song, Top Duo/Group, and Top Social Artist categories.
Even for the Top Social Artist category, BTS managed to break its own record for having won the category for five consecutive years.
