(CNN NEWSOURCE) – Move over MTV and Billboard!

Apple is giving out its own music awards!

The tech giant announced the winner of the first ever Apple Music Awards Monday.

Each winner will receive this prize — a 12-inch disc of silicon suspended between a polished sheet of glass.

Apple says the award is inspired by the same chips that power digital music devices.

So who’s taking home the Apple Music Awards this year?

Apple says singer Billie Eilish received its top honor being named “The Global Artist of the Year.”

Singer and rapper Lizzo was awarded “Breakthrough Artist of the Year.”

And Lil Nas X won “Song of the Year” for “Old Town Road,” which was determined by customer downloads.
