John Lydon (PRS) was named BMI Icon because of his "unique and indelible influence on generations of music makers" and joins a list of past honorees including Queen, Ray Davies, Steve Winwood, Van Morrison, Donovan, Don Black and Bryan Ferry, among others.

BMI presented Sweden's Jörgen Elofsson (STIM) and U.S. writing partner Ali Tamposi (BMI) with the Song of the Year Award (The Robert S. Musel Award) for penning the global hit "Stronger (What Doesn't Kill You)," performed by Kelly Clarkson. This award is given to the most-performed song in the BMI catalogue on U.S. radio and television over the past twelve months. Perfect Storm Music Group (STIM) and Universal Music Publishing (STIM) published the song.

The Dance Award was presented to Dutch songwriter Giorgio Tuinfort (BUMA) for the David Guetta-performed worldwide smash "Titanium." Sony/ATV Music Publishing (PRS) and Talpa Music (BUMA) published the million-selling song, which reached No. 1 on the U.K. charts in 2012 and was listed among the Top 10 in over 12 countries. Giorgio Tuinfort was also acknowledged with the Pop Awards for "Titanium" and two other David Guetta hits, "I Can Only Imagine" and "Turn Me On."
