Billboard’s annual Women in Music event occurred on Friday (Dec. 11) at Cipriani Midtown in New York, but you can watch it all go down when it's broadcast on Lifetime at 8 p.m. ET on Friday, Dec. 18.
While the event’s buildup led to Lady Gaga’s crowning as the 2015 Woman of the Year, the publication also celebrated Loretta Lynn, Selena Gomez and Alabama Shakes’ Brittany Howard, among many others. In her acceptance speech, Gaga praised women’s importance in music, “Women provide a wisdom to music that is very unique and special. It is a perspective no one else can have because we bear life.”
