Cardi B hosted last year’s AMAs. This year’s host has yet to be announced. BTS, Doja Cat and Megan Thee Stallion were the big winners last year, with three awards each.
Last year’s show was the most social telecast of 2021 with 46.5 million interactions, according to the show.
The winners of the American Music Awards are determined entirely by the fans. Nominees are based on top fan interactions – as shown on the Billboard charts – including streaming, album sales, song sales and radio airplay.
This is the 50th edition of the show, which was created by music/TV variety OG Dick Clark in 1973.
The show has been streaming on ABC since 1974, marking one of the longest continuous network relationships for an award show. The Grammys have been streaming on CBS since 1973. The Oscars have been streaming on ABC since 1976. The Tonys have been streaming on CBS since 1978.
The 2022 American Music Awards are produced by Dick Clark Productions and Jesse Collins Entertainment.
Collins, founder and CEO of Jesse Collins Entertainment, will return as showrunner and executive producer. Dionne Harmon and Jeannae Rouzan-Clay, two of Collins’ company executives, will return as executive producers. Longtime American Music Awards producer Larry Klein will return as producer.
Collins and Harmon won their first Emmys on Sept. 3 as executive producer and co-executive producer, respectively, of the Super Bowl halftime show, which was voted Outstanding Variety Special (Live). Rouzan-Clay received her first Emmy nomination this year as co-executive producer of the 64th annual Grammy Awards, which competed in that same category (and for which Collins was also nominated).
Klein, a music and variety television veteran, received his first Emmy nomination with Clark and Al Schwartz in 1988 when the 15th Annual American Music Awards was nominated for Outstanding Programming of Music Events from varieties.
AMAs have been from Microsoft Theater since 2007.
