This year's Billboard Music Awards should be a funky good time, thanks to the magazine's decision to recognize Prince with the Billboard Icon Award.
Prince will receive the honor on May 19 during the ceremony's live broadcast from Las Vegas' MGM Grand Garden Arena that will air on ABC. The hit-maker is also expected to offer a performance during the show.
Listen to Prince's new song, "Screwdriver"
Last year, Stevie Wonder received the Icon Award, which was presented with a tribute led by Alicia Keys.
The Billboard Music Awards are a reflection of the magazine's charts throughout the year, which catalog airplay, album sales, downloads and touring, plus streaming and social interaction on sites like Twitter, YouTube, Facebook, Spotify and Vevo. The tracking period for the 2013 awards began February 27, 2012, and will conclude February 24, 2013.
Additional information on presenters and performers to come.
fun year ahead!!!!!!!

The guy is one of music superstar of his own galactic music. His music is not fully discoverd and is surely underated in terms of his guitar playing. He is a true magestic Rock star playing everything from jazz to hip/hop, rock n roll to hard rock pop to rnb and rap. He founded ideas in video making setting standards in music industry. He owns music industry so he said iam bored of this way...i am still on my own and well he does cause very few true stars are made today on their own making real music not copying. He is just a genius singer songwriter dancer and of course multiinstrumentalist a full orchestra of his own musicality. Greetings from Athens. He deseves also a Tony Award for his theatrical lives all over the world
I've been a huge fan of Prince since I first heard Purple Rain in the 80s. But he makes me sad because alot of younger people just don't know who he his. His persistent efforts to ban his material on the internet pretty much means his material will never be heard by the younger generations who discover new music on sites like on youtube. :(
Great talent, gave many new artists their start plus writes amazing classical music. Well deserved!
The guy who makes music that nobody has listened to for years.

One of the last true ICONS of music left from back in the days when you really had to have talent and really make great songs and work hard for people to buy your music and to make it in the music industry. These days all we get are lame excuses for talent like Bieber, Katy Perry, Timberlake and Nicki Minaj (just to name a few) who just need a quirky image and a "dime store", bubblegum, assembly line song for the record buying public to eat it up...But then again, if the public is willing to buy crap, why should the music industry put any effort into creating anything worth while...
let's head out and makeup a conversation so she can relay the wrong information too everyone and think she's a diva.
then she'll EAT our memory and we still won't care...HAHAHHAHAHAHA
then she'll our memory and we still won't care...HAHAHHAHAHAHA
Prince had some good songs, but I was never a fan. Women were always saying how hot he was, but I always thought he was kind of creepy. Those are some hideous shades, too.

“All good books are alike in that they are truer than if they had really happened and after you are finished reading one you will feel that all that happened to you and afterwards it all belongs to you: the good and the bad, the ecstasy, the remorse and sorrow, the people and the places and how the weather was. If you can get so that you can give that to people, then you are a writer.”
― Ernest Hemingway
