2020 Billboard Music Awards FULL Nominations List

Kelly Clarkson 2020 Billboard Music Awards reschedule

dick clark productions and NBC announce the nominees for the 2020 Billboard Music Awards, which honor the year’s most successful artists in 55 categories across all genres of music. Rapper Post Malone leads the pack with 16 Billboard Music Award (BBMA) nods, followed by first-time nominees Lil Nas X with 13 and Billie Eilish with 12. BBMA winner Khalid ties Eilish with 12 nominations. Other nominees and possible record-breakers include first-time nominee Lizzo (11), Kanye West (9), Taylor Swift (6), and Justin Bieber (4).

The 2020 Billboard Music Awards, hosted by Kelly Clarkson, will broadcast live from The Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles on Wednesday, Oct. 14 at 8 p.m. ET on NBC.

This year’s awards are based on the chart period of March 23, 2019 through March 14, 2020, set for the originally scheduled April 29, 2020 show, which was postponed due to the pandemic. The original eligibility period will remain intact to recognize and honor the chart-topping artists and musical successes achieved and to maintain consistent tracking periods for future shows. (For instance, Gabby Barrett’s smash country hit “I Hope” will likely appear on next year’s nominees list).

Reality stars receiving nominations include: Blake Shelton (2): Top Selling Song, Top Country Song (“God’s Country); Camila Cabello (2): Top Hot 100 Song; Top Collaboration (Senorita); Carrie Underwood (1): Top Country Female Artist; Harry Styles (1): Billboard Chart Achievement Award; Koryn Hawthorne (1): Top Gospel Artist; Lauren Daigle (2): Top Christian Artist, Top Christian Song (“Rescue”); Melanie Martinez (1): Top Soundtrack (“K-12”); Morgan Wallen (2): Top Country Album (If I Know Me), Top Country Song (“Whiskey Glasses)

Fan-voted categories this year include Billboard Chart Achievement Award, Top Social Artist and Top Collaboration. Voting opens on October 1, 2020 and will be available on TikTok, this year’s primary voting platform, reflecting its increasing impact on music and role as a staging ground for chart-topping hits.
