It’s about that time for the 2019 Billboard Music Awards ceremony—and to say music lovers are completely psyched for the show is a bit of an understatement.
With the chart-topping Kelly Clarkson making her return as the host for the second year in a row, Taylor Swift opening the show, Mariah Carey being honored with the Icon Award, and Cardi B leading the night with a total of 21 nominations, there are guaranteed to be some must-see moments. (And, of course, one major red carpet.)
To make sure you don’t miss out on the occasion, here’s everything you need to know about when, where, and how to watch the 2019 Billboard Music Awards.
You can catch it on TV by tuning-in to your local NBC network, or watch online by accessing your personal cable provider’s live stream service. You can also watch by directly navigating to NBC.com/live, but you’ll have to input your cable provider’s login information for official access.
Hulu will air the show as well, but only if you have the Hulu + Live TV plan. (Pro tip: they’re currently offering free trials.)
As always, E! is coming through with red carpet coverage and will be live broadcasting the A-list proceedings starting at 6 p.m. You can watch on your television or through your cable provider’s streaming service.
Starting at 6 p.m. EST, the Billboard Music Awards will also air a two-hour pre-show (for free!) straight from their Twitter account, @BBMAs, hosted by Sofia Reyes, Sway Calloway, and Jaymes Vaughan.
Ever since the show premiered in 2018, it’s caught everyone’s attention thanks to its gripping, sharp-tongued, and endlessly unpredictable story. Its main plotline? The cat-and-mouse game between a bored intelligence agent (Sandra Oh) in London and the charismatic assassin she’s investigating (Jodie Comer). But even fans of the show may not realize that Oh’s Eve and Comer’s Villanelle aren’t new creations—they’re actually characters from a pair of novels written by British author Luke Jennings. Here’s what you should know about the books Killing Eve took inspiration from.
