The American Music Awards (AMAs) is an annual American music awards show, created by Dick Clark
Dick Clark
in 1973 for ABC when the network's contract to air the Grammy Awards
Grammy Awards
expired.[1] Unlike the Grammys, which are awarded on the basis of votes by members of the Recording Academy, the AMAs are determined by a poll of the public and fans, who can vote through the AMAs website.[2] The award statuette is manufactured by New York firm Society Awards.

History and overview[edit] Conception[edit] The AMAs was created by Dick Clark
Dick Clark
in 1973 to compete with the Grammy Awards after the move of that year's show to Nashville, Tennessee
Nashville, Tennessee
led to CBS
CBS
picking up the Grammy telecasts after its first two in 1971 and 1972 were broadcast on ABC. Michael Jackson
Michael Jackson
and Donny Osmond
Donny Osmond
co-hosted the first award show with Rodney Allen Rippy
Rodney Allen Rippy
and Ricky Segall in 1974. In 2014, American network Telemundo
Telemundo
acquired the rights to produce a Spanish-language version of the American Music Awards and launched the Latin American Music Awards in 2015.[3][4] While the Grammy Awards
Grammy Awards
are awarded based on votes by members of the National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences, the AMAs are determined by a poll of music buyers and the public. The American Music Awards have nominations based on sales, airplay, activity on social networks, and video viewing. Before 2010 had nominations based only on sales and airplay and nominated every work, even if old. The Grammys have nominations based on vote of the Academy and only nominate a work from their eligibility period that changes often.[5][6][7] Hosts[edit] The first hosts for the first telecast of the AMAs were Helen Reddy, Roger Miller, and Smokey Robinson. Helen Reddy
Helen Reddy
not only hosted the show but also became the first female artist to win an AMA for Favorite Pop/Rock Female artist. For the first decade or so, the AMAs had multiple hosts, each representing a genre of music. For instance, Glen Campbell
Glen Campbell
would host the country portion (Campbell, in fact, has co-hosted the AMAs more times than any other host or co-host), while other artists would co-host to represent his/her genre. In recent years, however, there has been one single host. In 1991, Keenen Ivory Wayans
Keenen Ivory Wayans
became the first Hollywood actor to host the AMAs. From its inception in 1973 until 2003, the AMAs have been held in mid- to late-January, but were moved to November (usually the Sunday before Thanksgiving) beginning in 2003 so as not to further compete with other major awards shows (such as the Golden Globe Awards and the Academy Awards) and allows for ABC to have a well-rated awards show during November sweeps. For the 2008 awards, Jimmy Kimmel
Jimmy Kimmel
hosted for the fourth consecutive year. In 2009–2012, there was no host for the first time in history. Instead, the AMAs followed the Grammys' lead in having various celebrities give introductions. However, rapper Pitbull hosted the 2013 ceremony and 2014 ceremony. Jennifer Lopez
Jennifer Lopez
hosted the 2015 show.[8] Gigi Hadid
Gigi Hadid
and Jay Pharoah
Jay Pharoah
hosted the 2016 show. Tracee Ellis Ross hosted the show in 2017. Between 2012 and 2014, as part of a marketing strategy for Samsung, the American Music Awards used the lock screen wallpaper of Samsung Galaxy series mobile phone handsets rather than envelopes to reveal winners. A magnetic screen cover on each phone kept the wallpaper image with the winner's name secret until opened.[9] The Billboard Music Awards, also an ABC awards show produced by Dick Clark Productions, also used Samsung Galaxy

handsets to reveal winners. Traditional envelopes returned during DCP's 2015 music awards ceremonies. Ceremonies[edit]
