Billboard Music Awards 2015 Live Stream: Watch It Online

Billboard Music Awards

Are you ready for the Billboard Music Awards 2015?

Each year, music fans and critics look forward to the Billboard Music Awards ceremony, primarily because of the many different faces that pop up on the red carpet, on the performance stage, or both.

Regardless of the genre, music fans rejoice when they see their favorite artists perform, present, and accept awards for some of the most competitive award categories in the music industry.

Even though most people will be crowded around their televisions to watch the live broadcast, interested viewers can also use the Internet to watch the broadcast on the go.

For instance, the official Billboard website is streaming the award ceremony as well as the red carpet footage of celebrity entrances.

The award ceremony is also being streamed online via ABC and other websites — such as IB Times and Hollywood Life.

The list of nominees and categories for the 2015 Billboard Music Awards is pretty long, but it is filled with chart-topping artists and unforgettable singles that have forced their way into the minds and hearts of their listeners over the past year.
