Rihanna, Britney Spears, Billboard Music Awards 2011

Justin Bieber, Taylor Swift, Eminem, and the other winners of the 2011 Billboard Music Awards have been announced. The Billboard Music Awards, “sponsored by Billboard magazine,…honors winners based on Billboard’s year-end music charts, which are based on Nielsen data for sales, downloads and airplay. Awards were given for the top album/artist/single in every genre. 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. Since its inception (created by Rick Garson), the BMAs had been telecast on the Fox network; however due to contractual expirations and other unforeseen circumstances, the awards were cancelled for 2007. Plans for a new version of the awards in 2008 (in association with AEG Live) fell through, and the BMAs were not held until 2011.” The full listing of the 2011 Billboard Music Awards winners is below.
