Billboard Music Awards and the winners

The Billboard Music Award is an honor given by Billboard, the preeminent publication covering the music business. The Billboard Music Awards show had been held annually in December until it went dormant in 2007, but it returned in May 2011.

Unlike other awards, such as the Grammy Award, which determine nominations as a result of the highest votes received, the Billboard Music Awards finalists are based on United States year-end chart performance according to Nielsen data for sales, number of downloads and total airplay. Awards were given for the top album/artist/single in different genres. Since 1992, the awards also give out a Billboard Century Award—the magazine's highest honor for creative achievement and named for Billboard's centennial in 1994. The award was renamed the Icon Award in 2011. Janet Jackson has won the most awards.                       

The 2013 Billboard Music Awards was a music award ceremony that was held on May 19, 2013 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. It was aired on ABC at 8:00/7:00 PM central. The show was hosted by Tracy Morgan.
