How to Watch the 2020 Billboard Music Awards

Are you ready for the 2020 Billboard Music Awards? Hosted by Kelly Clarkson, the awards show is set to kick off on Wednesday night (Oct. 14) live from the Dolby Theater in Los Angeles.

While Clarkson — who marks her third go-around as host of the evening’s festivities — will be joined by Pentatonix and Sheila E. for her opening number, other performers throughout the night will include Alicia Keys, BTS, Bad Bunny and Demi Lovato.

Garth Brooks, meanwhile, will be honored with this year’s icon award, following in the footsteps of past recipients including Mariah Carey, Janet Jackson, Stevie Wonder, Neil Diamond and Cher — the latter of whom will present the trophy to the country superstar.

Additional artists slated to perform during the telecast include Doja Cat, Brandy and Ty Dolla $ign, En Vogue, John Legend, and Kane Brown featuring Swae Lee and Khalid, while the likes of Addison Rae, Garcelle Beauvais, Nicole Richie and more will serve as presenters over the course of the evening.

Atlanta mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms will also present Killer Mike with this year’s inaugural Billboard change maker award to commemorate the rapper’s social activism amid the ongoing Black Lives Matter movement.

Sponsored by TikTok and Xfinity, the 2020 BBMAs will air exclusively on NBC beginning at 8:00 p.m. ET/PT, and can also be streamed on NBC.com.
