Talent Delays[edit]

The 22nd edition of the World Music Awards had been scheduled to be held December 20, 2012 at Miami's Marlins Park, but was canceled days beforehand due to issues with visa approval for artists coming in for the ceremony and in its own statement, out of respect to victims of the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting.[6][7]

The show was not held in 2013, and returned on May 27, 2014. The organization came to an agreement with the American NBC network to broadcast the ceremony with a tape delay on May 28. Delays due to talent caused the event to start late, and the shows' executive producers failed to meet the NBC edit deadline and deliver the show in time for it to be broadcast the next night. Mariah Carey arrived three hours late to open the show, which caused the ceremony to run hours over its original taping schedule.[1][8] Sharon Stone had been slated to host the ceremony, but pulled out at the last minute due after refusing the form of payment offered by the WMA organizers. Likewise, a scheduled livestream of the red carpet featuring Mariah's presentation of her new album to the world press via the website of music industry publication Billboard was called off due to Mariah's no-show.[9]

Pamela Anderson and Jason Derulo stepped in to host the ceremony at the last minute. NBC substituted the scheduled show on May 28 with a rerun of the premiere of that season's America's Got Talent.[1]
