The 2020 Billboard Music Awards, which were originally slated for April 29 on NBC, have been postponed due to concerns of the coronavirus.

Hosted for a third year by Kelly Clarkson, the new date has not been announced. The show was scheduled to broadcast from the MGM Grand Garden Arena and it’s no surprise as several other major television awards shows and music festivals immediately before and after the BBMAs have also been pushed back or flat out canceled.

Nominees for the 2020 BBMAs had not yet been announced, but Garth Brooks had been announced as the Icon Award recipient for the 27th annual show.

The BMS’s posted to Instagram, “Stay safe. #BBMAs.”
