The American Music Awards (AMAs) is an annual American music awards show, created by Dick Clark in 1973 for ABC when the network’s contract to air the Grammy Awards expired.[1] Unlike the Grammys, which are awarded on the basis of votes by members of the Recording Academy, the AMAs are determined by a poll of the public and fans, who can vote through the AMAs website.[2] The award statuette is manufactured by New York firm Society Awards.
