In advance of the awards show, Lovepop, the Billboard Music Awards and Lovepop investor Kevin O'Leary invited ABC's "Shark Tank" cameras back into the design studio to get an insider's look at the process of drafting, sketching and prototyping the "2017 Billboard Music Award" winner cards. "Shark Tank" will show a behind-the-scenes look at the making of the "2017 Billboard Music Awards" cards on FRIDAY, MAY 5 at 9:00 p.m. EDT, on ABC. The finished designs will be revealed for the first time to artists and fans during the "2017 Billboard Music Awards," broadcast live on SUNDAY, MAY 21 at 8:00 p.m. EDT / 5:00 p.m. PDT, on ABC.
