"THE 2005 BILLBOARD MUSIC AWARDS" TO AIR LIVE TUESDAY, DECEMBER 6, ON FOX
THE 2005 BILLBOARD MUSIC AWARDS will air live from the MGM Grand Garden Arena Tuesday, Dec. 6 (8:00-10:00 PM ET live/PT tape-delayed) on FOX. The BILLBOARD MUSIC AWARDS is the only awards show to truly recognize No. 1 artists.
Direct from the legendary Las Vegas Strip and featuring performances and appearances by the year's chart-topping artists, THE 2005 BILLBOARD MUSIC AWARDS recognizes the year's leading artists and songs as determined by actual performance on Billboard's weekly charts. The show celebrates the record-buying, Internet-downloading and radio-listening public's favorite songs, albums and performers, creating a true souvenir of the year in music.
Based on sales data compiled by Nielsen SoundScan and radio information monitored by Nielsen Broadcast Data Systems, Billboard's music charts are the world's most authoritative. Winners are determined by the 2005 year-end charts, which will reflect the weekly Billboard charts published from December 2004 through November 2005.
The BILLBOARD MUSIC AWARDS has been televised exclusively on FOX since the show's inception. Hosts, performers, award contenders and presenters will be announced soon.
