Greetings my friends, I am back nice and early this Monday morning to share with you all the winners of last night’s American Music Awards. They were handed out at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles during a broadcast last night. I didn’t watch the program myself as I was at a killer Metal show for the PiercingMetal.com side of the fence. Let’s take a look at who took home a trophy and to let you all debate the fairness of the process, I have left the names of the nominees in each category as well. Let’s get down to business.
ARTIST OF THE YEAR
Post Malone WINNER – Taylor Swift
Well hello again my friends in blogosphere. I’m back to share the winners of the E! People’s Choice Awards that were handed out just the other day. I’ve included the other nominees for the categories so you can either rally or rant after you see the winner. As before, this is a long list so get comfortable and maybe have something to drink on hand as well or a light snack.

Last night the annual BET Awards were handed out and this post amounts to the first time that I am sharing the winners of the awards with the readership. Generally speaking, with these sorts of items I like to do a post with all the nominees and then follow it with the results from the broadcast. Since some of you might not be too up on these awards for whatever reason, I’ve culled their description from the Official Wiki; Take a look –
“The BET Awards were established in 2001 by the Black Entertainment Television network to celebrate African Americans and other American minorities in music, acting, sports, and other fields of entertainment over the past year. The awards are presented annually, and are broadcast live on BET. The annual presentation ceremony features performances by artists, and some of the awards of more popular interest are presented in a televised ceremony.”
Best Female R&B/Pop Artist: ***WINNER: Beyoncé
In the constant effort to bring you a wide variety of interesting announcements, here are the tallies from the popular Pollstar service when it comes to touring and artists that dominated over the course of the 2018 year. I’m going to chime in down at the end with some additional editorial for those who wonder what I think about the matter.
The Press Release:
Pollstar continues to be regarded as the most credible source and final word for box office data. Pollstar’s rankings, which are based on data that is reported to Pollstar, are an important marketing tool for agents and venues, and talent buyers and others depend on box office histories to make informed business choices.
Pollstar received, inputted and verified more than 44,000 records, including a record-setting total gross reported of more than $10.4 billion, and 152.1 million tickets sold this year.
Considering that I run a Heavy Metal and Hard Rock music review and photography site like PiercingMetal.com, there aren’t a whole lot of times that I find myself perusing the pages of Billboard Magazine. Sure I know they are the keepers of all the chart information but so much of what I am lending my time to is seldom lined out in there. It’s a cruel truth when we follow music that is not supported here as much as it is in other countries. That being said; I still like to use “The Chronicles” as a means to line out those artists who have won since the readers of this site are usually listening to other stuff than I am. Here we go, and I’d get a coffee for this one since it’s a long list. I’ve culled this from the other entertainment sites and left the nominees in for good measure.
The Chainsmokers Drake — WINNER
Twenty One Pilots
Top New Artist:
Lil Uzi Vert
Lukas Graham Zayn — WINNER
