2017 Billboard Music Awards Nominees Announced

Just a little over three weeks ago, the nominations for the 2017 Billboard Music Awards were announced. Among the artists who received multiple nominations, Drake and The Chainsmokers are leading in terms of most nominations. Both artists have been nominated in 22 categories – not surprising considering the major success that both artists experienced in the past year.

The two artists will go head-to-head for the Top Artist award, competing with the likes of Adele, Beyoncé, and Justin Bieber. However, Drake and the Chainsmokers will both be top contenders for Top Male Artist and Top Billboard 200 Artist, and Top Duo/Group and Top 100 Artist, respectively.

The 2017 Billboard Music Awards will air on May 21 at 8PM.
