Last night, the winners of the 2022 Billboard Music Awards were announced and while we didn’t watch the broadcast we still cull together the list of the winners for our audience to examine. As is my usual practice, the nominations are left in the rundown so you can see who beat out who for the honor. Let’s take a look.
Top Artist: WINNER – Drake
Hello again my friends and welcome back to “The Chronicles” where I am serving up another Awards Show rundown. What you have here are the winners of the recently finished American Music Awards that where broadcast from the Microsoft Theatre and hosted by Taraji P. Henson. Though I recorded the program to breeze through with the morning coffee, I didn’t tune in as they aired as I got caught up watching the amazing “Avengers: Infinity War” film. Let’s take a look at the winners now shall we?
ARTIST OF THE YEAR:
Roddy Ricch WINNER – Taylor Swift
Last night The MTV “Video Music Awards” for 2017 were handed out at The Forum in Los Angeles. Last years they did this at our own famed Madison Square Garden and I guess it was proper to give LA a chance for the next go round. Now, I must admit to the readership that I no longer even remotely watch the MTV network nor have much of an interest in its programming. As a Rock guy with a lean towards the Metal side of the fence, its kind of hard for me to sit through endless Rap and R&B stuff since its not my thing. Sure I loved Run DMC and some Grandmaster Flash along with a few other legends over the years but there is no connection in my world of today with that sound. I generally post the “Rock” category winners over on PiercingMetal.com to get our readers all fired up and lamenting the state of the music industy but over on “The Chronicles” I am giving you the whole list that was compiled thanks to the other entertainment websites and the MTV one itself to be on point. We are here to entertain you after all so lets take a look at the list and who went home with a “moon person” stateuette.
Video of the Year: Kendrick Lamar – “HUMBLE.” (TDE/Aftermath/Interscope) — WINNER
Bruno Mars – “24K Magic” (Atlantic Records)
Alessia Cara – “Scars To Your Beautiful” (Def Jam)
DJ Khaled ft. Rihanna & Bryson Tiller – “Wild Thoughts” (Epic Records/We The Best)
The Weeknd – “Reminder” (XO/Republic Records)

Considering that I run a Heavy Metal and Hard Rock music review and photography site like PiercingMetal.com, there aren’t a whole lot of times that I find myself perusing the pages of Billboard Magazine. Sure I know they are the keepers of all the chart information but so much of what I am lending my time to is seldom lined out in there. It’s a cruel truth when we follow music that is not supported here as much as it is in other countries. That being said; I still like to use “The Chronicles” as a means to line out those artists who have won since the readers of this site are usually listening to other stuff than I am. Here we go, and I’d get a coffee for this one since it’s a long list. I’ve culled this from the other entertainment sites and left the nominees in for good measure.
The Chainsmokers Drake — WINNER
Twenty One Pilots
Top New Artist:
Lil Uzi Vert
Lukas Graham Zayn — WINNER
As 2017 continues to get itself into gear, I’ve decided to use “The Chronicles” as a platform to showcase the winners list rundown of the assorted awards shows that come at us during the year. I felt this would be some good content for the larger media side of the creative fence. Last night the Grammy Awards were given out for so many genres of popular music it will make your head spin. They have some “Rock” and “Metal” categories which I speak a little about over on PiercingMetal, but that is generally done to fire up our readers should something important be overlooked. Let’s get on with the rundown that was culled from numerous other entertainment mediums for your benefit. It’s quite a list so I’d get another cup of coffee if I were you.
