The 2018 Billboard Music Awards has a set date!

The annual award show (and one of our personal favorites) will air on Sunday, May 20th @ 8PM ET/5PM PT NBC. This will mark the first telecast of the highly popular music awards show on the network, which acquired the rights to it through a multi-year deal that was signed in November.

“We are thrilled to collaborate with the ‘Billboard Music Awards’ and dick clark productions to bring our mutual love of music and live programming together to showcase spectacular performances with the biggest names in music,” said Paul Telegdy, President, Alternative and Reality Group, NBC Entertainment in a press release last November. “The Billboard charts have long been the industry standard of greatness, making this show the #1 destination for music artists. We couldn’t imagine better partners than dcp, who we have teamed with on our Golden Globe telecasts for many years.”

The Billboard Music Awards showcases the hottest musical acts, biggest performances, unexpected collaborations and buzzworthy pop culture moments that will have the world talking.
