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 reflect the weekly charts that Billboard published from December 2004 through November 2005.

"All of the Billboard Music Awards are culled from the more than 250 recap charts that appear in Billboard's Year in Music issue, which annually is our most-read edition," said Geoff Mayfield, the magazine's director of charts. "Most of tonight's winners lead additional year-end charts that will appear in that issue and on billboard.com."

Billboard Magazine's Year in Music issue, scheduled to hit newsstands December 16, will announce award winners in all categories honored this year.

Now in its 111th year, Billboard is the world's premier music publication and a diverse digital, events and brand-licensing platform.
