The 2013 Billboard Music Awards are returning to Las Vegas on Sunday, May 19 and will honor the legendary artist Princeduring a live ABC broadcast from the MGM Grand Garden Arena.

BBMA Winners List


The "Purple Rain" singer-songwriter-musician follows the 2012 Icon recipient, Stevie Wonder, who received a multi-tiered tribute led by Alicia Keys.

Also at last year's event, Adele dominated with twelve awards, including Top Artist , Pop Artist and Female Artist, while LMFAO followed with six nods, including for Hot 100 Song of the Year ("Party Rock Anthem"). The show featured over 15 live performances from some of the biggest names in music, including Katy Perry, Kelly Clarkson, Usher and Justin Bieber.

The star-studded telecast resulted in a ratings win for ABC, attracting its second-largest audience since 2003 and trumping NBC's season finale of "Celebrity Apprentice" by 27% among all age groups.

The awards will reflect Billboard's chart rankings based on key fan interactions with music, including album sales and downloads, track downloads, radio airplay and touring as well as streaming and social interactions on Facebook, Twitter, Vevo, Youtube, Spotify and other popular online destinations for music. These measurements are tracked year-round by Billboard and its data partners, including Nielsen Entertainment and Next Big Sound. The awards will be based on the reporting period of Feb. 27, 2012 through Feb. 24, 2013. Top artists will be recognized in a variety of genres, including R&B, Rap, Pop, Country, Rock, Latin and Alternative.

Stay tuned for more announcements on performers, presenters and more for the May 19 airing of the 2013 Billboard Music Awards on ABC

He said 2013 will be big

Download all the shit hop that you can for your kids, neices, nephews, and their friends also. That will prevent them from going out and buying it and will prevent some shit hop sales. Every little bit helps - Andy

Fantastic! The performance would be great promotion for a new album and/or tour to commence right after. Prince really does seem to be pushing for a big year as promised. More power to him, I say!

Sweet! I'll just throw it out there....Prince, PLEASE do not throw away your performance by featuring some protege no one cares about or will ever remember existed six months hence.

We want U to bring like u did at the RRHOF- Prince, and only Prince!

That said, looks like I'll be watching a music awards show for the first time since maybe the 90s.

Looking forward!

Yes! An award / career recap + live performance are the perfect set up for a tour & album. It reminds me of how he orchestrated Musicology around his Grammy performance & RnR Hall of Fame induction--it was something he reportedly sat down in planned in advance. And if I recall, he promised in 2004 that "something big" was coming, too.

I'm also reminded of when he did American Idol around the time of 3121, two songs from that album if I remember correctly and holy macaroni that was AWESOME. (Also a nice reminder when watching a global karaoke TV show to see a REAL performer.) Best part was when I think Ryan Seacrest went up and hoped to stick a microphone in front of the Purple Yoda's face, but Prince split the fudge out of there pronto after the performance.

Badass.

So yes, I fully expect him to deliver the goods. 4 years since his last album (20Ten might as well have been released in a forest) that the masses could buy and consume, people are hungry for purple.
