The Billboard Music Awards Just Announced Its 2020 Nominees

The 2020 Billboard Music Awards nominations were revealed this morning. Post Malone leads the pack with 16 nods, while Lil Nas X, Billie Eilish, Khalid, Lizzo, and Kanye West follow. The Billboard Music Awards was forced to shut down earlier this year, but it’s officially back on the calendar. The BBMAs were originally supposed to air live in Las Vegas on April 29, but that plan was scrapped because of the pandemic. Now the show finally has a host (Kelly Clarkson), a start date (October 14), and, as of today, an official list of nominees. On Tuesday, the show released its anticipated list of 2020 nominations. Post Malone leads the field, picking up 16. He is followed by Lil Nas X (with 13), Billie Eilish and Khalid (with 12 each), Lizzo (with 11), and Kanye West (with 9).Check out the nominations below and see if your favorite made the cut before showtime on October 14 at 8 p.m. EST on NBC.ARTIST AWARDSTop Artist:Billie EilishJonas BrothersKhalidPost MaloneTaylor SwiftTop New Artist:DaBabyBillie EilishLil Nas XLizzoRoddy RicchBillboard Chart Achievement Award (Fan Voted):Mariah CareyLuke CombsLil Nas XHarry StylesTaylor SwiftTop Male Artist:DaBabyKhalidLil Nas XPost MaloneEd SheeranTop Female Artist:Billie EilishAriana GrandeHalseyLizzoTaylor SwiftTop Duo/Group:BTSDan + ShayJonas BrothersMaroon 5Panic! at The DiscoTop Billboard 200 Artist:DrakeBillie EilishKhalidPost MaloneTaylor SwiftTop Hot 100 Artist:DaBabyBillie EilishKhalidLil Nas XPost MaloneTop Streaming Songs Artist:DaBabyBillie EilishLil Nas XPost MaloneTravis ScottTop Song Sales Artist:Billie EilishLil Nas XLizzoPost MaloneTaylor SwiftTop Radio Songs Artist:Jonas BrothersKhalidLizzoShawn MendesPost MaloneTop Social Artist (Fan Voted):BTSBillie EilishEXOGOT7Ariana GrandeTop Touring Artist:Elton JohnMetallicaP!nkThe Rolling StonesEd SheeranTop R&B Artist:Chris BrownKhalidLizzoSummer WalkerThe WeekndTop R&B Male Artist:Chris BrownKhalidThe WeekndTop R&B Female Artist:BeyoncéLizzoSummer WalkerTop R&B Tour:B2KJanet JacksonKhalidTop Rap Artist:DaBabyJuice WRLDLil Nas XPost MaloneRoddy RicchTop Rap Male Artist:DaBabyLil Nas XPost MaloneTop Rap Female Artist:Cardi BCity GirlsMegan Thee StallionTop Rap Tour:DrakePost MaloneTravis ScottTop Country Artist:Kane BrownLuke CombsDan + ShayMaren MorrisThomas RhettTop Country Male Artist:Kane BrownLuke CombsThomas RhettTop Country Female Artist:Maren MorrisKacey MusgravesCarrie UnderwoodTop Country Duo/Group:Dan + ShayFlorida Georgia LineOld DominionTop Country Tour:Eric ChurchFlorida Georgia LineGeorge StraitTop Rock Artist:Imagine DragonsPanic!
