Billboard Music Awards 2021 guide: Start time, host, nominees, performance, how to watch and channel

If sport isn’t your thing, then Sunday night is packed full of entertainment anyway with the 2021 Billboard Music Awards being hosted.

When are the BBMAs? And how to watch it on TV or online

The BBMAs will air on Sunday, May 23 at 20:00 ET / 17:00 PT on NBC.

Without the right television subscription, the ceremony will still be accessible to watch online.

They can be streamed live on the Peacock app for free. Basic subscription is free.

There are other streaming platforms showing the ceremony as well, though. Hulu+ Live TV is one of those, and again you can take advantage of a free seven-day trial there.

Alternatively, fuboTV and SlingTV will also have it covered. Again, both are currently offering free seven-day trials.

What to expect: Who is the host and who are the nominees?

After three years of Kelly Clarkson hosting, her The Voice co-host Nick Jonas will take centre stage as the event’s host at the new location of the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.

Some big names will be looking for their first ever Billboard awards this year, notably DaBaby, Megan Thee Stallion, Lil Baby and Dua Lipa.

With 27 BBMAs, Drake will receive the Artist of the Decade Award in 2021. Pink will also take home an award in the form of the honorary Icon Award, joining the likes of Mariah Carey and others.

For the second time, there will be a Change Maker Award, which was previously awarded to Trae Tha Truth for his part in fighting injustice on behalf of his friend George Floyd.

Following his phenomenal performance at the Super Bowl, The Weeknd is scheduled to perform live again, while Duran Duran will perform remotely from the United Kingdom.

Bad Bunny, Karol G, Alicia Keys, DJ Khaled with H.E.R. and Migos, Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis with Sounds of Blackness, AJR, Glass Animals and Twenty One Pilots are all also performing.

Lena Waithe, Renee Elise Goldsberry, Leslie Odom Jr., Cynthia Erivo, Henry Golding, Dixie D’Amelio, Lil Rel Howery, Gabrielle Union, Kelsea Ballerini, Chelsea Handler, Kathryn Hahn, Padma Lakshmi, and Swizz Beatz. Beyonce’s mother, Tina Knowles-Lawson are all expected to be presenting throughout the night.
