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 present the Grammy Awards expired. 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 music buyers. The award statuette is manufactured by the New York firm Society Awards.

The awards honor the year's achievements in music, mainly in the teen pop genre, and are awarded based on popular vote from the network's listeners via online voting. The trophy awarded to a winner is known as the “Golden Mickey”, a gold-colored statuette with a silhouette figure of Mickey Mouse donning headphones nicknamed the “Ardy”, representing Radio Disney's initials. Before 2014, the ceremony was not televised beyond commercial interstitial segments for Disney Channel to promote their sister radio network. As of the seventh annual ceremony on April 26, 2014, the ceremony began to be televised in full a day after a tape delay, as the network attempts to compete with Nickelodeon's Kids' Choice Awards in airing awards programming. Starting in 2016, Canada was able to vote for the first time, as Disney programming formerly under the control of Family Channel is now carried by Disney-branded Corus Entertainment networks in both English and French. In 2018, the voting started in India through the official Disney International HD website and televised on the channel in July 2018.
