Greetings my friends, I am back nice and early this Monday morning to share with you all the winners of last night’s American Music Awards. They were handed out at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles during a broadcast last night. I didn’t watch the program myself as I was at a killer Metal show for the PiercingMetal.com side of the fence. Let’s take a look at who took home a trophy and to let you all debate the fairness of the process, I have left the names of the nominees in each category as well. Let’s get down to business.
ARTIST OF THE YEAR
Post Malone WINNER – Taylor Swift
Last night the annual BET Awards were handed out and this post amounts to the first time that I am sharing the winners of the awards with the readership. Generally speaking, with these sorts of items I like to do a post with all the nominees and then follow it with the results from the broadcast. Since some of you might not be too up on these awards for whatever reason, I’ve culled their description from the Official Wiki; Take a look –
“The BET Awards were established in 2001 by the Black Entertainment Television network to celebrate African Americans and other American minorities in music, acting, sports, and other fields of entertainment over the past year. The awards are presented annually, and are broadcast live on BET. The annual presentation ceremony features performances by artists, and some of the awards of more popular interest are presented in a televised ceremony.”
Best Female R&B/Pop Artist: ***WINNER: Beyoncé
In the constant effort to bring you a wide variety of interesting announcements, here are the tallies from the popular Pollstar service when it comes to touring and artists that dominated over the course of the 2018 year. I’m going to chime in down at the end with some additional editorial for those who wonder what I think about the matter.
The Press Release:
Pollstar continues to be regarded as the most credible source and final word for box office data. Pollstar’s rankings, which are based on data that is reported to Pollstar, are an important marketing tool for agents and venues, and talent buyers and others depend on box office histories to make informed business choices.
Pollstar received, inputted and verified more than 44,000 records, including a record-setting total gross reported of more than $10.4 billion, and 152.1 million tickets sold this year.
