About the American Music Awards
The American Music Awards (AMAs) are an annual American music awards event held in the fall that was conceived by Dick Clark in 1973 for ABC when the network’s contract to broadcast the Grammy Awards expired. From 1973 until 2005, winners and nominees were chosen by members of the music industry based on commercial success, such as sales and airplay. Since 2006, winners have been decided by a vote of the general public and fans, who can cast their ballots via the AMAs website.
