LONDON (Billboard) - With five nominations, 50 Cent leads the contenders for the 15th annual World Music Awards, to be held Sunday (Oct. 12) at the Monte Carlo Sporting Club.

He is up for best-selling pop male, R&B artist, rap/hip-hop artist, new artist and recording artist.

George Benson and Chaka Khan (news) will both be crowned with the Legend Award at the show, to be hosted by actor Rupert Everett (news) and tennis player Anna Kournikova (news - web sites). The event's patron, Prince Albert of Monaco, will present Mariah Carey (news) with the Diamond Award, in recognition of worldwide album sales in excess of 100 million units.

I know that the World Music Awards are always broadcasted live to 160 million viewers, but I cannot seem to find any listings for it this Sunday. If anyone can find the listings for it, I would appreciate it. George Bensen is a long-time fave and I would love to see him and Chaka Khan finally get some recognition from the establishment. It will also be interesting to see Anna and Rupert host together.

Anna as the host of an awards show.
Usually it's a show business veteran hosting any show like this. A Billy Crystal. A Gary Shandling. A Dennis Miller.

This had better be on tv in the U.S.
