Plot Synopsis

THE BILLBOARD MUSIC AWARDS honor the best in music, originally based on the year-end charts of the music trade publication "Billboard" magazine. Now, finalists are based on key fan interactions with music, including album, single and digital sales, airplay, touring, streaming and social interactions on MySpace, Facebook and many of the other most popular online destinations for music.
