The Billboard Music Awards aim to highlight and celebrate “music’s greatest achievements,” and finalists are determined by their performance on Billboard charts throughout the course of the year, from March 21, 2020, through April 3, 2021. These charts highlight fan interactions with the music, such as song and album sales, streaming, social engagement and radio airplay.

The 2021 Billboard Music Awards will be aired live on May 23, 8 PM EST/May 24, 9AM KST.
