The 2019 Billboard Music Awards were presented on Wednesday night, May 1, during a ceremony that took place at the MGM Grand Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada and was hosted for the second time byKelly Clarkson. So who came away with the most prizes? Scroll down to see the complete list of winners in every category honoring the most successful artists, songs and albums.
The BBMAs are decided differently than other music prizes. Where awards like the Grammys and ACMs are voted on by industry insiders and the VMAs and American Music Awards pick their winners by fans voting online, these kudos are determined using the metrics that also determine the Billboard charts every week. That includes album and digital song sales, streaming performance, radio airplay, touring success and social engagement, as tracked by Billboard and its data partners, including Nielsen Music and Next Big Sound.
