    Finalists announced for Fox's Billboard Music Awards, 12/10

    FINALISTS ANNOUNCED FOR 'THE 2003 BILLBOARD MUSIC AWARDS' AIRING LIVE DEC. 10 ON FOX

    50 Cent, R. Kelly, Beyonce, Sean Paul and Dixie Chicks Finalists in Multiple Categories 'Digital Track of The Year' to be Awarded for First Time


    THE 2003 BILLBOARD MUSIC AWARDS announced finalists in categories scheduled to be honored this year live from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas Wednesday, Dec. 10 (8:00-10:00 PM ET Live/PT Tape Delayed) on FOX. In recognition of the growing importance of legal digital downloads, Billboard has created and will award during the broadcast the 'Digital Track of the Year' award, honoring the artist who's track has achieved the most legal downloads over the internet.

    "For the first time, Billboard is introducing a 'Digital Track of the Year' award", says Billboard Editor-in-Chief Keith Girard. "This marks a significant milestone in the industry and signals the beginning of an exciting future for music."

    Featuring performances by Sting, Beyonce, No Doubt, Clay Aiken, Foo Fighters, Shania Twain and Evanescence the BILLBOARD MUSIC AWARDS recognizes the year's leading artists and songs as determined by actual performance on Billboard's weekly charts. Based on sales data compiled by Nielsen SoundScan and radio information monitored by Nielsen Broadcast Data Systems, Billboard's charts are the world's most authoritative music charts. Winners are decided by the 2003 year-end charts, which reflect the weekly charts that Billboard publishes from December 2002 through November 2003. The show celebrates the record-buying and radio-listening public's absolute favorite songs, albums and performers, creating a true souvenir of the year in music. Billboard Magazine's year end issue, scheduled to hit newsstands on December 20, will announce all award winners in all categories honored this year.

    ok, this one doesn't look AS horrible as the AMA's

    the categories are a bit more spread out

    but what the smeg is the difference between "rock" and "modern rock" ??

    Trapt looks like it fits more with the "modern rock" group.... the Foo Fighters and Audioslave look like they more with "rock"

    what's up with that

    another example of how the music industry knows dick all, and doesn't care about the Rock scene

    I'm glad to see Josh Groban is up for Internet artist of the year, but what the heck is that category? What do they base that on?
