The American Music Awards is a show that is held annually during the fall season. The show was created in 1973 by Dick Clark for ABC. The purpose of creating this show was to replace the Grammy Awards because the right to air Grammy Awards contract expired. The members of the music industry will analyze the commercial performance of the album such as sales and airplay, and choose the winners and nominees. This approach lasted for decades from 1973-2005, it was not until 2006, the way in which winners and nominees get selected was changed. The show changed the system to a poll system and the winners and nominees were selected based on the number of polls, the public and fans can vote for the respective stars they like through the AMAs website. You can watch American Music Awards through streaming devices like Roku, Firestick, Apple TV, and other devices.
