The 2020 Billboard Music Awards which was postponed in April due to the coronavirus pandemic, has set a new date.
The awards ceremony was initially scheduled to air live on NBC from Las Vegas on April 29. The postponement came amid an industry-wide shutdown of TV and film production due to the COVID-19 outbreak.
The show is now set to air live at 8 p.m. ET Wednesday, October 14, on NBC. Kelly Clarkson will return for her third consecutive year as host.
Billboard Music Awards nominees and winners are based on key fan interactions with music, including album and digital song sales, streaming, radio airplay, touring and social engagement, tracked by Billboard and its data partners, including Nielsen Music and Next Big Sound.
