The annual national television award in the field of popular music Muz-TV (better known as the Muz-TV Prize) has been awarded by the Muz-TV channel since 2003. The list of nominees is formed on the basis of the decision of the expert jury, then the audience vote is held on the official website of the award. The award ceremony takes place at the Olimpiyskiy sports complex. In 2011, it was also held at the Ice Palace in St. Petersburg. Every year, the music awards ceremony attracts tens of thousands of spectators. The award ceremony is accompanied by a concert show featuring nominated artists and guest stars. Among the latter there are special guests - world-famous stars: Christina Aguilera, Katy Perry, Jennifer Lopez, 50 Cent, Sharon Stone, 30 Seconds To Mars, Tokio Hotel, Sum 41, The Pussycat Dolls and others. After the award in 2012, there were allegations of fraudulent results. Many artists, in particular Philip Kirkorov, were accused of bribing the organizers. On Muz-TV, the program “Muz-TV Award # goodbye” was released, at the end of which it was announced that the “Muz-TV Award 2012” was the last one, and is finally closed. But later, the music director of Muz-TV Arman Davletyarov announced that the issue of closing the project was not raised and the next Muz-TV Award will be held on June 7, 2013 in the Olympic Sports Complex.
