Billboard Music Awards 2020, nominations: Taylor Swift, Billie Eilish, BTS

Postponed by several months, the billboard music awards 2020 ceremony will take place on October 14. With 16 nominations, Post Malone is the big favorite of the evening, followed by Billie Eilish, Khalid, Taylor Swift, Lil Nas X, Lizzo, or Kanye West. Discover the nominees!

The musical ceremonies resume slowly, but surely. After the MTV Video Music Awards, which crowned Lady Gaga with five trophies, it is the turn of the Billboard Music Awards to confirm its 2020 edition. Initially scheduled for April, it will finally take place on October 14. Who will succeed Drake, the big winner of the 2019 edition with 12 prizes? The answer may lie between Post Malone, Billie Eilish, or Khalid, the big favorites following the list of nominations that has just been unveiled. The American rapper leads the way with 16 quotes, most of them in the main categories like Best Artist or Best Billboard 200 Album for his hit machine “Hollywood’s Bleeding”. The R&B singer and the 18-year-old phenomenon artist compete in the same big categories, earning 12 nominations each. Three artists who will fight in particular against Taylor Swift. If she took everyone by surprise with “Folklore”, it is with her previous album “Lover” that the pop star is present in six categories.

Lizzo and Lil Nas X are a hit!

Since the BBMA 2020 mainly reward the hits of the previous year (the ceremony is based on the charts from March 2019 to March 2020), it is no surprise that we find Lil Nas X nominated 13 times (! ) thanks to “Old Town Road” , one of the biggest musical successes of 2019. A big favorite of the Grammy Awards 2020 and left with three trophies, Lizzo could do double blow at the Billboard Music Awards, where she is cited eleven times, in particular for Best Hot 100 song for “Truth Hurts”, Best Female Artist, or Best New Artist.

In the many categories (there are more than 55!) Of the Billboard Music Awards, we obviously find all the big music stars like Drake, Travis Scott, Janet JacksonElton JohnPink, the Rolling Stones, Ed Sheeran, Ariana Grande, Beyoncé, Justin Bieber, DaBaby or Tame Impala. Note that Kanye West is one of the most cited artists this year with 9 nominations. But don’t try to find him in rap or R&B: it’s more in the gospel and Christian music genres that we find “ye” with his album “Jesus is King”. The rapper also holds 4 of the 5 titles nominated for Best Gospel Song. Finally, BTS receives two nominations for Best duo or group, and Best social artist, which it has already won the three previous years.
