The American Music Awards are an annual awards show for the music industry held on ABC in the fall. Founded in 1973 by Dick Clark to replace an award show that was no longer produced by ABC’s network contract, the American Music Awards have gone through several changes and are now produced by MRC Live & Alternative. Dick Clark Productions folded into MRC in 2021. There are several categories, including pop, rock, country, and alternative music.
The ECHO Klassik is an award given by the Deutsche Phono-Akademie, an association of recording companies in Germany. It recognizes outstanding achievement in the music industry for the year 1991. It replaced the Deutscher Schallplattenpreis, which was first awarded in 1963. Unlike the Grammy Awards, the ECHO Awards honor both artistic quality and popular appeal. The German Grammys have a very different format, but both are worthy of recognition.
Taylor Swift is a leading finalist. With 14 nominations, the singer-songwriter is the most decorated female artist at the BBMAs. She has twice been nominated for the top country album category. And a record-extending eighth time, Swift has been nominated for the top artist category. Drake is up for five awards, including top male artist and top artist. Another nominee, The Weeknd, is tied for fourth place with Justin Bieber, who has 21 wins.
The Weeknd is among the top contenders in the 2022 Billboard Music Awards. The ceremony is set to air live on NBC on Sunday, April 21. The Weeknd is a finalist in 17 categories, including top male artist, top hot 100 artist, and collaboration with Ariana Grande. A collaboration with Ariana Grande is up for six awards, and The Weeknd is up for another six. Whether it wins him a Grammy, he’ll surely bring home the big cash.
The Billboard Music Awards celebrate artists across genres. It was held on Sunday night at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, and hosted by Sean “Diddy” Combs. This awards show recognizes artists based on hard numbers, including album sales, song sales, radio airplay, and social engagement. It’s a night to celebrate the best in music, and no award show is more popular than the Billboard Music Awards.
A phalanx of dancers surrounded the stage during the MTV Video Music Awards, including Diddy, who performed the popular song “Mo Money, Mo Problems”. In addition to his vocal talents, Escobar’s performance was highlighted by his stunning dancing skills. He was joined by a phalanx of dancers for the ballad “Curame.”
