What time do the 2020 Billboard Music Awards start? What TV channel are they on?
On Wednesday, October 14, 2020, the most popular music artists and songs of the year will be honored at the Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada, for 27th Billboard Music Awards, which were delayed from April due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Unlike other awards, like the Grammys, the Billboard awards are presented to the most popular artists and their songs and albums based on sales, broadcast and streaming data, touring and other metrics. There are three categories that are an exception to this at the 2020 Billboard Music Awards: the Billboard chart achievement award, top social artist and top collaboration. Fans are allowed to vote in these categories, and voting took place this year on the TikTok social platform.
