The BBC has launched an annual music awards.

DJs Fearne Cotton and Chris Evans will host the first live show later this year, which is set to be the biggest music event after Glastonbury, bringing together BBC One, BBC Radio 1 and BBC Radio 2.

A panel of BBC presenters and producers will decide the best British artist and international artist gongs, while TV viewers and radio listeners will select the year's best song.

The ceremony is set to rival the annual BRIT Awards on ITV and the show will feature a number of performances to review the year, as well as collaborations between well-known artists and the BBC Orchestra.

BBC Radios 1 and 2 and 'The One Show' will give fans a peek behind the scenes.

BBC director general Tony Hall said: ''Today's the start of something very special for everyone who loves music.

''BBC Music is a celebration of the brilliant musical talent across our country. We'll be joining up music on television, radio, iPlayer and online like never before.

''There'll be new shows, new partnerships and whole new ways to enjoy music.''

The awards are part of a new music strategy for the BBC, bringing together TV and radio programming, digital services and provisions to support emerging talent.

The event will be held on 11 December at London's Earls Court and acts set to perform are yet to be announced.
