Top-selling artists honored JWWWSt . 'If. it 1997 Billboard Music Awards: 8-10 p.m. Monday, WFLX-Channel 29, WSVN-Channel 7 88427, 49917 By Jay Bobbin Special to The Palm Beach Post With all the new music released during a year, it's no small achievement for artists to reach the top of the charts. And it's an even bigger accom- plishment to stay there, j That's what the annual Billboard Music Awards ceremony celebrates, and the 1997 edition originating from the MGM Grand in Las Vegas airs Monday on Fox. Many talents who hit the No. 1 spot in various categories during the past 12 months will appear, as Saturday Night Live alumnus David Spade (now a co-star of NBC's Just Shoot Me) serves as host. Slated to perform on the show are Aerosmith, Garth Brooks, God's Property (featuring gospel star Kirk Franklin), Jamiroquai, LeAnn Rimes, Spice Girls and Third Eye Blind. Scheduled presenters include Aqua, Backstreet Boys, Toni remember to have fun after seven months of doing promotion, though my manager constantly reminds me, 'It's not every artist who gets invited to every country in the world."'

When you're making a record, you're thinking more about getting to tour and what your bus will look like. I did the MTV Video Music Awards and had a lot of fun there, but I also have greater empathy for artists who are worn out and don't think it's fun anymore. I was in some of the most beautiful places in the world and I was exhausted. That was a drag." Singerguitarist Meredith Brooks is a nominee for best new artist (video) clip in poprock.
