Spotify’s first ever awards show is less than 3 weeks away and they’ve revealed the finalists in the running to win the Spotify Awards 2020.

Spotify’s upcoming Awards ceremony decides its nominees and winners a little differently to most. Rather than a board of influencers discussing and deciding on their favourites the selections are all made from user-generated data.

The Awards ceremony will take place in Mexico City and will be the first ever Awards presented by the major music streaming service. They will broadcast live from the Auditorio Nacional on March 5th.

Whatever the 270+ million listeners on Spotify have been streaming in the last year will decide what wins each category. The streams will decide who wins Artist of the Year, the Podcast of the Year, Most Streamed Song, Most Streamed Male & Female Artist, Artist Most Added to Playlists, and the many other awards categories to be announced.

In total the Spotify Awards will have 62 categories for artists, tracks and podcasts to win. 12 of the categories will be broadcast on TNT in Latin America or on Telemundo and Universo in the US.
