 Once again, the 2003 Billboard Music Awards proved to be one of the few nights that Las Vegas actually produces a famous amount of winners. The Billboard Music Awards which aired December 10 at the MGM Grand Casino in Las Vegas and broadcast live on Fox television and featured performances and appearances by the year's chart-topping artists.
Scheduled performers include No Doubt, Foo Fighters, Beyonce, Evanescence, Sting, Shania Twain, Pink and Clay Aiken.
The Billboard Music Awards honor the year's No. 1 artists and songs as determined by record sales and radio airplay. Winners are decided by the 2003 year-end charts, which reflect the weekly charts that "Billboard" magazine publishes. In its 109th year of publication, "Billboard" is one of the world's premier music industry publications. R&B dominated Wednesday's 2003 Billboard Music Awards.
No Doubt opened the nationally televised show, hosted by Ryan Seacrest of "American Idol," with a performance of their hit single "It's My Life." Beyonce appeared at the ceremony in a sequined Versace dress, won new female artist of the year, new R&B artist. Beyonce and crooner R. Kelly each earned four awards R. Kelly, whose album "Chocolate Factory" sold more than two million copies was the night's other big winner. He took home awards for Hot 100 producer, R&B producer, Hot 100 songwriter and R&B songwriter - and closed the show with a flamboyant performance that had him riding down the aisle in a horse-drawn chariot.
Singers Nick Lachey and Jessica Simpson, featured on the MTV reality show "Newlyweds," presented the first award for duo/group of the year to 3 Doors Down. Rapper 50 Cent had a leading six nominations heading into the show at the MGM Grand hotel-casino. By the end of the night, he won three awards - for top artist, R&B artist and rap artist. Stevie Wonder presented Sting with the Century Award for creative achievement. The Grammy Award-winning singer has sold 100 million albums and singles with The Police and as a solo artist. But Sting said album sales didn't matter: "If you play music with passion and love and honesty, then it will nourish your soul, heal your wounds and make your life worth living."
The Billboard Awards recognized Artists that prove to be outstanding in every style of music.
