Music fans, mark your calendars. After several cancelled events and ceremonies, broadcaster NBC has confirmed that the 2021 Billboard Music Awards will go ahead on the 23rd of May.
Organizers of the award ceremony have confirmed the date for this year’s annual music award ceremony after last year’s awards were postponed from April to October due to the coronavirus.
The organizers are yet to reveal the nominees, performers and hosts.
The previous ceremony was held in Los Angeles at the Hollywood’s Dolby Theatre without a live audience as a way of adherence to covid-19 regulations.
Rapper Post Malone drove away as the biggest winner of the night, scooping nine gongs including the Top Artist as well as Top Male Artist, Top Billboard 200 Artist and Top Hot 100 Artist.
Malone battled with top artists such as Billie Eilish, Taylor Swift, Jonas Brothers and Khalid in the Top Artist category.
The awards were not handed to him in person so as to adhere to social distancing regulations.
“I’m honestly blown away, just by the love that everybody has shown to me, and honestly, I appreciate it more that I could ever express and it’s kind of a big deal for me, you know, and everybody involved because we work…. We work our a*** off,” said Malone as he received his award.
