Only two short weeks after the 2016 American Music Awards, dick clark productions announce the air date for the 2017 Billboard Music Awards!

The show is set to return to ABC and will broadcast LIVE on Sunday, May 21st @ 8PM ET. A location has not been named yet, but we’re thinking it will take place at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas for the second consecutive year.

The show will showcase this year’s hottest musical acts, big performances and buzzworthy pop culture moments that will have everyone talking.

Billboard Music Awards finalists are based on key fan interactions with music, including album and digital songs sales, radio airplay, streaming, touring and social engagement, tracked by Billboard and its data partners, including Nielsen Music and Next Big Sound. The awards are based on a 12-month reporting period ending in March of 2017. Since 1940, the Billboard charts have been the go-to guide for ranking the popularity of artists, songs and albums, and are the ultimate measure of success in music.
