Winners for the BILLBOARD MUSIC AWARDS are based on the more than 250 annual chart recaps in Billboard�s Year In Music issue, dated Dec. 23.

"More than any other music awards show, the Billboard Music Awards are determined by the consumer," says Geoff Mayfield, Billboard's director of charts. "When fans buy music or listen to the radio, those choices determine our winners."
