The awards ceremony, created in 2000 by NRJ in partnership with the television network TF1, traditionally took place every year in mid-January at Cannes (Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur, France) as the opening of MIDEM (Marché international de l'édition musicale). It is now held in the month of November.[1] They give out awards to popular musicians in different categories.

The name "NRJ" means "Nouvelle Radio des Jeunes" (new radio of teens). It is a play on words between the pronunciation of the French letters and the French word "énergie" (energy).
