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. This event was first telecast in 1990 on FOX and held annually in December through 2006. After more than a four-year layoff, THE BILLBOARD MUSIC AWARDS returned in 2011 to air annually in May on ABC ever since.
Hosted by Nick Jonas, the 2021 BILLBOARD MUSIC AWARDS aired live from Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles, CA on Sunday, May 23, 2021 from 8-11pm ET (live)/PT (tape) on NBC, with performances by AJR, Alicia Keys, Bad Bunny, BTS, DJ Khaled feat. H.E.R. and Migos, Doja Cat & SZA, Duran Duran, Glass Animals, Jonas Brothers with Marshmello, Karol G, P!nk, Sounds of Blackness feat. Ann Nesby, The Weeknd, and Twenty One Pilots.
