What are the American Music Awards?
The American Music Awards was created by Dick Clark in 1973, specifically for the ABC channel.
Before 2005, the winner for each award was chosen by high-ranking members of the music industry, who voted based on commercial performance levels.
Following 2005, AMA winners are selected by the general public, through voting online.
Dick Clark was an American radio and television personality, producer, and actor.
He was the host of American Bandstand from 1956 until 1989.
The American Music Awards came to be following ABC's loss of contract with the Grammy Awards, who switched to CBS.
According to its website, the AMAs "is seen in more than 200 countries and territories around the world. Nominees were based on key fan interactions – as reflected on the Billboard charts – including streaming, album and digital song sales, radio airplay, and social activity."
