Beyoncé Lands Billboard Award
Having already fronted one of the most successful girl groups of all-time and amassed 16 Grammy Awards before even reaching 30 years of age, there isn’t much that Beyoncé Knowles hasn’t achieved. The Texas-born superstar can now add a prestigious Billboard Millennium Award to her list of her accomplishments...
On May 22, at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Ms. Knowles will see her career achievements and influence in the music industry recognised at Billboard’s annual awards ceremony.
The Millennium Award won’t be the first time that Billboard has acknowledged Beyoncé’s talent. In 2009, she was heralded as the 'Woman Of The Year' and was named the 'Top Female Artist Of The Decade' just a couple of months later.
Rihanna, Nicki Minaj, Cee Lo Green, Taio Cruz, Pitbull and Jennifer Lopez will be among the other stars performing live at Billboard’s annual extravaganza.
