The newly announced editorial award will go to an innovative artist that achieved a notable chart milestone over the past year. The six finalists for the 2013 Milestone Award presented by Chevrolet were announced today on Billboard.com — they are: Justin Bieber, The Band Perry, Miguel, Taylor Swift, Bruno Mars and Pitbull.

Voting is now open on Billboard.com/milestone. The six finalists will be narrowed down to three finalists, who will be unveiled on the website in mid-April. Voting will then continue all the way through the live Billboard Music Awards broadcast, culminating with the announcement of the award winner toward the end of the show.

“The addition of the Milestone Award gives us the opportunity to recognize truly creative artists that are breaking boundaries with their contribution to today’s musical landscape,” said Bill Werde, editorial director, Billboard. “These awards are for artists who have created music and accomplishments that are part of history. It’s an honor to work with a historic brand like Chevrolet to bring them into focus as part of this year’s Billboard Music Awards.”

“This is a perfect opportunity for Chevrolet to bring together two important pieces of its history, ingenuity and music,” said Chris Perry, vice president, Chevrolet Marketing. “The innovation in music today is represented by the nominees for this year’s Milestone Award.”

Fans also have the opportunity to enter a contest on Billboard.com/milestone to win the chance to present the Milestone Award live on the 2013 BillboardMusic Awards alongside Cee Lo Green, two tickets to the show, hotel accommodations and airfare. To enter, fans must submit a photo along with an essay about why they think they should present the award.

The All-New 2014 Spark EV

Be electric in the all-new 2014 Spark EV and put gas stations in your rear-view mirror!

2014-sparkev-model The all-new 2014 Spark EV features a lithium-ion battery that offers gas- and emissions-free power and performance. This electric mini car utilizes some of the same cutting-edge electric power technology proven in the Chevrolet Volt, the best-selling rechargeable car of the year. Spark EV includes regenerative braking, which captures energy that would otherwise be lost while braking, decelerating or going downhill. It also offers liquid thermal conditioning, which maximizes its performance in extreme weather conditions. This guarantees the best performance from the battery and ensures its longevity. And the battery is backed by an 8-year/100,000-mile limited warranty.

Tuned specifically for its electric propulsion system, Spark EV puts power in all the right places at the moment it’s needed for a sporty and responsive ride, and by responsive we mean 0-60 mph in under 8 seconds.

Charging is easy peasy in the 2014 Spark EV. Just plug Spark EV into a standard household 120V outlet, or for a faster charge, you can opt for the available 240V dedicated charging system that charges up the battery in just seven hours.

2014-sparkev-model-overview-interiorChevrolet Mylink gives you access to your favorite music, media and mobile apps as well as information about electric power and efficiency while you’re on the go. Turn Spark EV into an extension of your smartphone by simply connecting to the high-resolution, standard 7-inch color touch-screen radio through Bluetooth wireless technology or the USB port. And with a standard three years of OnStar, you’ll have access to your Spark EV from anywhere with your OnStar RemoteLink app. Check battery level, efficiency statistics, tire pressure and more on your smartphone. You can even lock, unlock and remote start your Spark EV before you get in.

There are a lot of perks to driving this upcoming EV, for more information visit Chevrolet.com. This vehicle will only be available at participating dealers in California and Oregon in limited quantities late Summer 2013. But check in with us and we’ll let you know when we’re expecting it here!
