article imageComedy power couple announced as hosts for Billboard Music Awards

By Tim O'Brien     Apr 25, 2012 in Entertainment
Las Vegas - An award show that comes from the charts will be handed out in May, and today (April 25), it was announced who will be hosting this star-studded night.
"The 2012 Billboard Music Awards" will air live from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas on ABC. A nice tie-in to ABC comes with the fact that two Emmy winners from "Modern Family" will act as hosts. Ty Burrell and Julie Bowen, the comedy couple from the show, will do the honors.
"We are thrilled to have television’s favorite Emmy Award winning couple as our hosts for this year’s Billboard Music Awards," said Richard D. Beckman, CEO Prometheus Global Media.
Not only do The Billboard Music Awards follow those time honored charts, they now include social media as well. In fact, they track the chart rankings with fan interaction with music. That includes album sales and downloads, too. Throw in track downloads, radio airplay and touring, Facebook, Twitter, Vevo, You Tube and Spotify and you will have the winners. They will be announced on May 20.
What the producers are hoping to achieve by naming the comedy couple hosts, is evident. It is all about timing and chemistry. "Ty and Julie have captured the hearts of America with their on-screen chemistry and humor - and we look forward to having them bring that magic to the Billboard Music Awards."
