Even though we can’t go because we share all of our precious tickets with fans like you, we’re so excited that you and your favorite sidekick get to attend this ultra-exclusive event.
Award Shows Then and Now
In the good old days, awards shows were few and far between. One show focused on films, one focused on television, and others were for music and theater. With the national availability of cable TV with its 128-channel packages and numerous paid entertainment options, award shows have sprung up specifically for various networks and their prime viewership members.
Nowadays, you can’t swing a cat on a Friday night without running into an award show of some type hosted by a network that caters to a specific audience. Some of our favorites include the Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards, ESPN’s ESPYs and the Teen Choice Awards on Fox.
Choosing the Winners
Most winners are chosen based on their popularity or skill by their respective audiences. But there’s only one that has nothing to do with the romanticism of a popularity contest. This show picks the winners by comparing how much money each recording took in for the companies that produced it. Metrics include album sales, digital downloads, streaming, radio airplay, live performances and social media. That’s a lot of data!
By now, you’ve probably realized that we’re talking about the Billboard Music Awards. They’re the truest measure of a song, songwriter or performer. Talk about brass tacks–these are more like galvanized steel nails. There’s no debate about who wins the Billboard awards each year. The answer’s written on the bottom line of every creative audio or video project.
What to Expect at the 2023 Billboard Music Awards
Clients who have never attended a Hollywood award show or red carpet event often ask us what to expect. At the Billboard Music Awards, the answer’s pretty simple. You’ll be treated to jaw-dropping live performances, appearances from A-list presenters and so many head-turning celebrity sightings that you may need a vigorous neck massage the next day.
The Billboard Music Awards have been held annually for more than 30 years, but they’re firmly rooted in the 21st century. In 2022, the nominees were announced on Twitter, and the viral song category featured hits that made a splash on social media platforms like TikTok. Plus, the festivities kicked off with a pre-award show music fest for the first time ever.
The Billboard Music Awards Take Over Las Vegas
There’s so much to look forward to during a vacation in Vegas. At the Billboard Music Awards, the expectations are even bigger and better. The show features live performances from big-name acts like Megan Thee Stallion, Florence and the Machine, Marina Lambert, Elle King, Ed Sheeran and P. Diddy, all in one night.
Big achievers for the year include The Weeknd, Doja Cat and, of course, BTS, who claimed 38 nominations collectively. This proves their creative and monetary achievements beyond any other measure. However, Drake takes the cake with 34 career wins, more than any other artist, including award-show darling Taylor Swift.
For 2023, the Billboard Music Awards are scheduled for Sunday, May 14th at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas. This is an estimated date; the exact date is TBD. Check back often for updates, but don’t hesitate to get your VIP tickets. We have a limited selection of highly coveted floor seats. If you want to go, now’s your chance.
