2012 Billboard Music Awards Winners
The Billboard Music Award is an honor given by Billboard magazine. This show had been held annually in December until it went dormant in 2007, but it returned in May 2011. Unlike other awards, such as the Grammy Award, which define nominations as a result of the highest votes received, the Billboard Music Awards finalists are based on United States year-end chart performance according to Nielsen data for sales, number of downloads and total airplay.
Accolades were given for the top album/artist/single in different genres. Since 1992, the awards also give out a Billboard Century Award—the magazine’s highest honor for creative achievement and named for Billboard‘s centennial in 1994. The award was renamed the Icon Award in 2011.
