Taylor Swift & Billie Eilish Among Billboard Music Awards Nominees

09/22/2020

The Billboard Music Awards nominations are here! On Tuesday, nominees in two categories were announced on the Today show, with followup announcements made on Billboard.com and Twitter throughout the morning.

Up for the Top Artist award are Billie Eilish, Jonas Brothers, Khalid, Post Malone and Taylor Swift, while Top Billboard 200 Album nominees include Eilish’s When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go, Swift’s Lover, Khalid’s Free Spirit, Post Malone’s Hollywood’s Bleeding and Ariana Grande’s Thank U, Next

Originally set to take place in April, the 2020 Billboard Music Awards were rescheduled to Wednesday, Oct. 14 due to the coronavirus pandemic. While the date has changed, the host has not, with Kelly Clarkson returning to helm the show.

This year’s awards are based on the chart period of March 23, 2019 through March 14, 2020. Nominees and winners are based on fan interactions with music, including album and digital song sales, streaming, radio airplay, touring and social engagement, tracked by Billboard and its data partners, including MRC Data/Nielsen Music. 

The Billboard Music Awards are just around the corner! We are exclusively announcing the nominees in two of the biggest categories: Top Artist and Top Billboard 200 Album. See the rest of the nominees over at @BBMAs.
