With Kelly Clarkson returning as emcee for the third year in a row, the semi-virtual Billboard Music Awards arrived once again to celebrate another year of chart-topping achievements.
Heading into Wednesday’s three-hour event (NBC, 8/7c), Post Malone led the pack with 16 total nominations, followed closely by Lil Nas X with 13 nominations and Billie Eilish — a Top Artist and Top New Artist nominee — with 12.
And just when you thought 2020 couldn’t throw us any more curveballs, presidential hopeful Kanye West has amassed nine nominations in the Christian and Gospel categories, including Top Christian Artist, Top Gospel Album and four separate entries in Top Gospel Song. (Seriously, who had “Kanye West vs. Kirk Franklin” on their 2020 Bingo card? No one?)
There’s also a handful of epic performances slated for the big night, including Alicia Keys, Bad Bunny, Brandy, BTS, Demi Lovato, Doja Cat, En Vogue, Garth Brooks, John Legend, Kane Brown, Khalid, Luke Combs, Post Malone, Saint Jhn, Sia, Swae Lee and Tyla Yaweh.
